“The Count” has given Georges St-Pierre an ultimatum. For the middleweight champion, they are to fight around July or not at all. With his frustration mounting, “The Count” has made a prediction for George St-Pierre’s future.
UFC middleweight champion Michael “The Count” Bisping is set to defend his title from now returning Georges St-Pierre. However, “Rush” wants a fight later this year. Bisping wants it around international fight week in July. After giving the fighter an ultimatum, claiming he would go fight Yoel Romero if St-Pierre didn’t move the date, Bisping gave some new thoughts on the fight in The Countdown podcast on Sirius XM.
“Here’s what I think GSP’s plan is. He comes back, he fights me, he beats me. In the time that takes, Demian Maia beats Jorge Masvidal then he fights Tyron Woodley. [St-Pierre] believes – because he said this – that Maia beats Woodley. Then, from him fighting me, he fights Maia, relinquishes the 185-pound belt, then he goes for the 170 belt. He fights Maia because stylistically it’s a good fight for him because Georges is a great wrestler and he’s very, very accomplished at jiu-jitsu. I think he can do what I’m going to do to GSP, stop his takedowns and win the fight on the feet.
“Then from there – he’s spoke about this – then he’s gonna relinquish that and then fight Conor McGregor for the lightweight belt. That is his master plan, I guarantee it. And if he can pull it off, then he would definitely go down as the greatest mixed martial arts fighter in history.
“I do think that after that, he’s gonna fight at his weight class – 170 – and then go for the big, big money fight against Conor, which would be almost as big as, maybe, Conor vs. Floyd. That would do bigger numbers than Conor vs. Nate Diaz. It would be massive.”
