UFC President Dana White has predicted Anderson Silva will fight Georges St-Pierre next year, and then could look to face Jon Jones.
White recently confirmed that Silva will not return to UFC until 2013, and last week suggested that a superfight with GSP could take place early next year, with the 100,000-capacity Dallas Cowboys Stadium a possible venue.
St-Pierre is currently preparing to make his return to action and is scheduled to take on Carlos Condit in the main event at UFC 154 in November.
The UFC welterweight champion insists he is not looking at a possible fight with Silva (see Related Articles), but White believes the fight will happen.
"Anderson and GSP were talking like they didn't want to fight," White told Inside MMA.
"Now, [if] Georges St-Pierre wins the Carlos Condit fight, he's saying he wants to fight Anderson Silva and Anderson Silva is saying he wants to fight him.
"That fight will probably happen first."
And White believes Silva vs GSP fight could be followed by Silva taking on Jones.
"Anderson and Jones are saying we're buddies, don't wanna fight or whatever the deal is, but [Jones] didn't want to fight Rashad [Evans] either, and that happened," White added.
"As you start to get to a point like where Anderson is now in his career. He's beat everybody; he's broke every record in UFC history.
"If he wins against Georges St-Pierre, I guarantee he'll be eyeballing Jon Jones next."
