Georges St-Pierre hopes to fight Michael Bisping in November

Updated: July 26, 2017

The super fight between UFC legend and former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and current middleweight champion Michael Bisping may take place after all. Originally, UFC president Dana White planned for the bout to take place this month. However, injuries kept both fighters from competing.

As a result, an interim title fight occurred at UFC 213 featuring Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero. The former won the title, but due to a knee injury sustained during his fight with Romero, a timeframe for his return and imminent matchup against Bisping are not yet known.

In that, St-Pierre is currently still pining for a super fight against Bisping in November. Per the IBTimes UK, he appeared on the champion’s podcast, “Believe You Me,” and stated:

“I texted Dana (White), and he knows that I want to fight you… which I hope will happen, hopefully, November… Sometimes in sports, unfortunately, the misfortune of people makes the good luck of others.” St-Pierre continued… “That’s what happened in this case: I had an injury. You had an injury, which created the opportunity for another guy, but the other guy, Robert Whittaker, had bad luck. So, he had an injury, which put us back into the initial situation that we are in. So, it’s up to Dana White.”
