UFC 126 brought plenty of news this Saturday in Las Vegas. Besides Anderson Silva’s impeccable presentation, putting away Vitor Belfort in the first of their scheduled five rounds, Jon Jones’s guillotine choke finish of Ryan Bader caught attention, earning him a shot at Mauricio Shogun’s light heavyweight title for his next outing.

And Anderson too may know his next opponent: welterweight champion Georges Saint-Pierre. For that to happen, all GSP has to do is beat his next opponent, Jake Shields. The fight, as confirmed at the post-event press conference by the promotion’s president, Dana White, will take place at Anderson’s weight, 185 lbs.

Another big piece of news that broke is that the UFC will hold an event in Japan later this year, according to Dana.
