Michael Bisping says GSP has until Saturday to make their championship clash happen
The middleweight champion had some sturn words for GSP
Yoel Romero and Robert Whittaker will square off this weekend at UFC 213 for the interim middleweight championship as Bisping nurses a knee injury but it is still not clear whether Bisping will face the winner of the interim title clash or if he will get his wish and defend his title against GSP.
Dana White recently confirmed that GSP now wishes to fight at welterweight, where he held the title for several years, rather than competing for the middleweight championship. “The Count” however, is still considering a potential super fight with St-Pierre if a deal can be agreed by all involved.
“I was supposed to fight GSP. Why wouldn’t I want to fight him? Of course, that would be big business,” Bisping said. “He’s a guy that will be regarded as a welterweight legend forever. I would love that fight for my legacy. We’ve been over this a million times. Now, Dana is saying (GSP) doesn’t want to fight. Georges is saying he does want to fight. I know that I want to fight and if we can still make the Georges thing happen, then great, I’m all in.”
Bisping believes the ball is now in St-Pierre’s court as he has constantly asked for the fight to no avail. “Georges, if you’re watching this, I’ve done everything I can,” Bisping said. “I have called Dana White, I’ve expressed my desire to fight Georges St-Pierre. Every time we speak on the phone, I say, ‘Dana, that’s all well and good, but what about me and GSP? Georges, I’ve done everything I can. If you want this fight to happen, get on your phone, call somebody up, send some messages — do f*****g something. I couldn’t care.
Bisping has warned GSP if the fight hasn’t been made official by Saturday then he will have no other choice but to fight the winner of the interim title bout at UFC 213. “Georges, if you’re watching, which I know you are because you want to know what I’m saying,” Bisping said, “you’ve got until Saturday because on Saturday I’m going to be on the FS1 post-fight show. Tune in, because one of those (fighters), Yoel Romero or Robert Whittaker, will be joining me on the desk.
