Georges St-Pierre coming off a very long layoff is not ready to face middleweight champion Michael Bisping according to many sources. Georges St-Pierre has moved up from welterweight to middleweight to face the champion.
We are just one week away from the return of Georges St-Pierre at UFC 217 on Nov. 4 live on pay-per-view (PPV) from inside Madison Square Garden in New York City, N.Y., as the former UFC welterweight king takes on current middleweight champion Michael Bisping.
While most people figured GSP would one day return to the Octagon after calling it quits nearly four years ago, few imagined the Canadian superstar coming back and competing at 185 pounds. After all, St-Pierre dominated the welterweight division during his prime and would now encounter a completely new set of contenders, including current welterweight champion Tyron Woodley.
BISPING FEELS ST-PIERRE WILL NOT FACE HIM
Michael Bisping feels Georges St-Pierre will not stand and trade with him. He believes St-Pierre will avoid him and fight from the outside or try to use his ground game. Michael Bisping wants to have a stand up fight and punish GSP on the feet.
GSP has always prepared for his fights to the best of his ability. And since he’s moving up in weight to fight for the middleweight title in his first fight in four years, you better believe he took the time to properly think it through. At least he should have.
