Dana White has confirmed Georges St-Pierre is one victory away from a superfight with Anderson Silva, which would mark the end of his reign in the UFC welterweight division.

St-Pierre fights Jake Shields in his next title defence at UFC 129, after which it will be undeniably acknowledged that he has cleared out the 170lb weight class.

Silva's next bout is even closer, he takes on Vitor Belfort at UFC 126 on February 5, and White has outlined the importance of the clash: If Silva and St-Pierre both win their next fights, they face each other.

"If they both win their fights, that makes all the sense in the world," White answered during a Q&A session on Friday. "If that happens, then we're probably going to do that fight.

"Georges St-Pierre would move to 185 and stay at that weight and not go back to 170."
