Earlier this week, BJPENN.com’s Chris Taylor reported that current UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping was being targeted for a fight at December’s UFC 206 event in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

“The Count” initially denied the report, but today proceeded to call out former UFC welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre for a fight at the December 10 event on Twitter:

Bisping went on to say that he had verbally agreed to a fight with St-Pierre, but was waiting on “Rush” to “sign the papers”:

Shortly following Michael Bisping’s tweets, ESPN’s Brett Okamoto revealed that he had received a text message from UFC President Dana White that shut down all hopes of a Michael Bisping vs. Georges St-Pierre super-fight at UFC 206.
