UFC president Dana White announced late Wednesday night that officials are moving ahead with Michael Bisping and the middleweight title. However this no longer includes Georges St-Pierre.
“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 said. “(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 the wait for GSP to return to the octagon goes on, however Bisping vs Romero is lining up to be a colossal fight also:
