Michael Bisping Still Thinks He's Fighting Georges St-Pierre

Michael Bisping Still Thinks He's Fighting Georges St-Pierre

With Bisping being unable to fight this summer as initially expected, the UFC now has to decide whether they will have the middleweight champion fight Yoel Romero or Georges St-Pierre when he is ready and able to defend his title. He had to wait patiently while Chris Weidman, Bisping, Dan Henderson and Georges St-Pierre were all granted title shots before his name was even considered (in fairness Weidman got the shot once Romero was temporarily suspended, and Bisping was a late replacement after Weidman was injured, but still...). He also stated that while some may believe this to be a pressure tactic from the UFC against GSP, he thinks the need for more title fights sooner is likely the real motivator. I think that's probably the top of it.

Fond of getting the last word in arguments, White didn't take long to respond to the former middleweight champion via Twitter. It's like these guys want to sit around - you've got Rockhold right now screaming 'I deserve this.' You just got knocked out in the first round. You don't deserve anything. Though the UFC would never admit to feeling the effects of losing MacDonald in public, you have to imagine watching "The Red King" leave for Bellator stung just a little bit. You want the guy that the stock is the highest.

"I never said I deserved a title shot", he tweeted today.

That comment prompted Rockhold to directly tag White in a Twitter post on Tuesday.

Rockhold was spot on in his thoughts on an interim title fight: Bisping and St-Pierre wouldn't have fought until October or November.

The hacker first tried to strong-arm the post-production company but eventually targeted Netflix with extortion demands. The Disney executive's comments come in the aftermath of a global ransomware attack called "WannaCry".


After the UFC announced that Bisping and St-Pierre would be fighting later this year, they held a press conference, which both men attended. I know that a lot of people are complaining about this potential delay with Georges, so we'll see what happens.

Earlier in the evening, Demian Maia, who earned a pivotal triumph over Jorge Masvidal this past Saturday in Dallas, claimed that he had been promised a welterweight title shot on more than one occasion in the past only to see someone else jump the line.

Outside of that, it looks like St-Pierre might be destined for a return to his old stomping grounds at 170 pounds.

Rockhold denied demanding an opportunity to win gold.

At the end of the day, White and Rockhold will let bygones be bygones and move on. I think they need title fights on the pay-per-views, which I understand.
