Michael Bisping to defend UFC belt against Georges St-Pierre

As a result, UFC officials looked to book the immediate rematch, much to the chagrin of Woodley, who was still hoping for a fight against St-Pierre. He even verbally agreed to fight St-Pierre at UFC 206 on December 10 in Toronto, but the Canadian star was unable to come to a financial deal with the UFC to make it happen. Tyrone Woodley and Steven Thompson are looking to seize control of the division when they headline UFC 209 on Saturday 4 March in a rematch of their November thriller for the title, offering the possibility of a tantalising showdown between the victor and the returning Canadian later down the line. Soon after that announcement the organization hit back saying that he was still under contract with the UFC. Now back then I was a kickboxer from England, I didn't know a double leg from a double decker bus.

When he vacated his title, many praised St. Pierre for doing something very few fighters have done: exit the game on top. Jacaré Souza has done more than enough to earn the right to fight for gold.

It's not a fight that Bisping was begging for, but one that he believes would be ridiculous to pass up. Should he face Bisping for the belt? He's also been campaigning for a boxing match with Floyd Mayweather, leaving his UFC future up in the air. "So unfortunately I will not answer any questions about GSP and Michael Bisping". An alternative is a title defense against a wrecking-ball challenger Yoel Romero. "He has been talking about coming back for a couple of years now, I personally wasn't a believer". He is a beast and is so powerful it must be a terrifying experience facing him.

If he runs quickly in the 40-yard dash, you could see his stock take off as he's got a lot of attributes that teams will covet. Gustafson, a lanky 6-foot-7 with a strong arm, outplayed Wentz in his first career start during his junior season.

Bisping acknowledged the criticism, but turned the tables and said any other fighter would accept a GSP bout if it was offered. But the comeback of GSP was going to be big regardless and they really don't need to keep giving Yoel Romero the shaft.

Physically he feels in his prime - "I don't know if I'm in the beginning of it or at the end of it but I know I'm in it right now".

St. Pierre is still among the biggest stars in MMA even though he hasn't fought in almost 3 1/2 years. It (fighting) was more like an obligation. You will be able to treble your bet by getting free money from the bookmaker and win big.
