Dana White – Bisping v GSP OFF

Dana White has delivered bombshell news to The middleweight division. The much vaunted fight between champion Michael Bisping and the return of superstar Georges St-Pierre is OFF.

It seems White is not happy to wait until October/November which is the date GSP has said he will be ready to fight.

“I made this GSP fight, we did a press conference. The thing was supposed to happen in July. Michael Bisping is going to have to defend his title now. We’re not waiting for GSP,” White told FOX Sports Australia’s UFC Fight Week.

“(Yoel) doesn’t need to voice his opinion on why he needs a title shot. He definitely deserves a title shot. He’s next in line, he’s the No.1 ranked guy in the world.

“Georges St-Pierre was coming back. Bisping-St-Pierre – they both wanted that fight. We asked Yoel to step aside, he did. It doesn’t look like that fight is gonna happen now.

“Georges St-Pierre is saying he will not be ready to compete now until November. Who knows if that’s even the case. It could be next year.

“So we’re not waiting for Georges St-Pierre anymore. We’re moving on with the division, and Yoel Romero will get the next shot.”

The middleweight division had been on stand by recently after GSP jumped the queue to claim a title shot against Bisping.

With this being probably the most stacked division with contenders do you agree with Whites decision?

Good. Was weird enough as it was, and that was when it was meant to be in July. It’s messing up the division for too long.

Maybe Dana White was right all along about GSP.
He does not really want to fight…and I predict he re-retires….

What about bisping knee injury which he has stated many times isn’t healing as quick as he’d like. He even said the later date suits him better aswell. This is yet again a personal thing between dana and a fighter that has stood his ground against him.

Romero will smash him!

James Grierson

Meant to tell you this before I left lol x

Craig Tibbits

Stephen William Dumma Colin Liddle I said GSP was a tool!!!

Konnor Kwapisz

It’s unfortunate I would have loved to see the GSP fight but atleast he should be ready for welterweight if left till November. Bisping has a number of hard fights in front of whoever but the big cheat Romero should be first
