Anderson Silva And Georges St-Pierre Fight Almost Happened

One year ago, the biggest possible fight in the history in MMA was a superfight between Anderson Silva and Georges St-Pierre. Now at this current time, Silva has lost two times and in his most recent fight against UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman, Silva broke his leg in the fight. St-Pierre defeated Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 in November and announced he was vacating the welterweight title and isn’t sure if he will return. The possible superfight was a lot closer though than people ever realized.

Marcos Villegas was in California at media day for the Manny Pacquiao and Tim Bradley fight that will take place on April 12. Villegas spoke to Pacquiao head trainer Freddie Roach, who has helped St-Pierre work on his standup in the past. Roach gave some insight into the possible superfight and more.

You can see why St-Pierre took a break especially with the migraine headache issue. Do you think the superfight would have happened if Silva would have beat Weidman?
