It’s a official St-Pierre vs Bisping for the middleweight title
Big news from Dana White today announcing that GSP vs Bisping is going to happen at 185 lbs later this year. The fight will be for the middleweight championship. This will make the first time GSP has fought in what seems like forever.
The two fighters will meet for a press conference in Vegas on Friday just to take some pictures and get the fireworks started from Bisping. The date and venue for the fight hasn’t been finalized yet. The fight won’t be for at least another 4 months because GSP has to go through at least that much time in USADA testing.
ST-Pierre is 35 now and is a much needed boost for UFC after all their big named talent hasn’t been fighting of late. I think there were better fights for him to get a tune up before getting a chance at the Belt. How about a rematch with Hendrix, coming off a big win? I get that this is a big money fight but not a super exciting one for me.
I’m not super pumped for this fight because I really think that Bisping is going to box GSP’s face off. GSP is much shorter and I think smaller than Bisping. Yeah St. Pierre is jacked but Bisping was at one time fighting normally at 205.
The big thing here for Bisping is this is a big money fight for him. He deserves this time to shine riding a 5 fight win streak, the best of his career.
So who are you picking a French Canadian or an Englishman?
