Are You Happy With St-Pierre vs. Bisping?

Georges St-Pierre could never compete again and still be considered one of the greatest UFC fighters of all-time.

Last month, White mentioned St-Pierre had broached the possibility of moving down to 155 pounds.

Plenty will be excited about the return of St-Pierre, as he's among the most talented competitors to feature in the UFC.

"We haven't set a date yet, but that's the fight", said White.

A celebrated figure in Canada, St-Pierre defended his 170-pound belt nine consecutive times prior to his UFC departure - a record for the division - culminating in a hard-fought split decision over Johny Hendricks in November 2013. St-Pierre is required to undergo four months of enrollment in the USADA testing field before he is allowed back to active competition, hence the delay. "He's been talking about coming back for a couple years now".

White added: "I'm not a big believer in long layoffs". "He wanted to take some time off from the sport". A potential fight with McGregor in the future has not been ruled out, as McGregor has fought at 170 pounds in the past. Home cage advantage, Canada for St-Pierre or England for Bisping, could saw things significantly. I personally wasn't a believer, but he and I got together in Las Vegas, we had dinner and we got a deal done. We do know, however, that it will take place this year.

Georges St-Pierre reportedly took up martial arts because he was bullied. This means if you are legally able to gamble, the current odds by Sports Interaction would need you to wager $150 on Georges St-Pierre to win $100.

"Georges said he could make 155lb but in the end everyone wants to fight Bisping because they think he's beatable so he's going to step up for the middleweight".
