The major hurdle remaining for a UFC super fight at Cowboys Stadium

Georges-st-pierreUFC president Dana White admitted that it "probably pisses" Carlos Condit off that fight fans are already just assuming that Condit is going to lose his fight against Georges St. Pierre next week.

If GSP defeats Condit on Saturday, Nov. 17 at the Bell Centre in Montreal in UFC 154 everything would be clear to stage a massive, jumbo, super size, super-duper large fight between Anderson Silva and GSP some time next year. 

"If GSP versus Silva were to happen that is a fight you could do at Cowboys Stadium," UFC president Dana White said when I asked him about this scenario on a conference call today. "There are three venues that you do - we could do Toronto, Cowboys Stadium or a soccer stadium in Brazil. Those are our three options."

GSP vs Silva would be arguably the biggest fight in UFC history. Or the biggest sporting event in the history of the universe.

White said the Cowboys are "pumped and ready for it" whenever he can put together a fight card big enough that could potentially draw 100,000.

If Condit defeats GSP in UFC 154, which would be considered an upset, it would likely delay the UFC coming to Arlington.

UFC 154 is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 17 at 9 p.m. CT. The main bout features UFC welterweight champion GSP, who has not fought for more than a year, against interim welterweight title holder Carlos Condit.

The REAL superfight everyone wants to see is Silva vs Bones Jones. I'm afraid GSP doesn't have the tools to challenge Silva.
