Georges St-Pierre Challenges Michael Bisping to Fight at Madison Square Garden This November
Earlier this week UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping told former UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre that he had until Saturday to “man up” and make a fight happen.
Georges St-Pierre heeded Bisping’s call to action.
On Thursday morning GSP texted both Bisping and UFC president Dana White and proposed a fight at Madison Square Garden on November 4, according to a report from MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani.
“Michael, you should man up and fight me 11/4 in N.Y.,” Saint-Pierre wrote in the text. “I am coming out of retirement to retire you. Dana, PLEASE make it happen.”
Unfortunately, injuries to both fighters prompted White to pull the plug on their fight. Since then White has been trying to book a welterweight title fight for GSP. Meanwhile, he’s been saying Bisping’s next opponent would be the winner of the interim middleweight title bout between Yoel Romero and Robert Whittaker at UFC 213. However, it’s clear that Bisping and St-Pierre want to fight each other.
Will Dana White listen to their pleas and make Bisping-GSP happen? Stay tuned.
