White Denies GSP, Bisping vs. GSP Definitely Not Happening

UFC President Dana White is adamant when it comes to the cancellation of a title fight between UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping and former UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre.

White had originally canceled the fight due to St-Pierre not being able to fight until November. However, Bisping is also suffering from an injury and won’t be able to compete until the end of the year. Both Bisping and St-Pierre have expressed interest in still fighting in 2017.

“It’s not happening,” White said on a recent episode of the UFC Unfiltered podcast. “Bisping is a little banged up right now. (Romero and Whittaker) are going to fight for the interim championship and then Bisping will fight the winner.

“Georges St-Pierre will come back who knows when, November, December, or next year, and he’ll fight whoever the champion is at 170. I’m not very confident in when GSP will return.

“I don’t wait for anybody. The world moves on. When (St-Pierre) comes back, he’ll come back, and he’ll fight whoever is the champion at 170.”

With Bisping being injured, the UFC is creating an interim title. Top middleweight contenders Yoel Romero and Robert Whittaker will fight for the championship on July 8 at UFC 213.
