UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping has what is likely be the biggest fight of his life coming up as he is set to take on former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, who returns to fight once again after taking over three years off from competition.

Bisping last fought at UFC 204 back in October as he successfully defended his belt for the first time in his close rematch with MMA legend Dan Henderson. Following the fight, Bisping said that he needed some work done on his knee that would put him out of competition until likely the second quarter of 2017.

It looks like procedures with his knee is still current but “The Count” says he isn’t taking any time off from the gym.

Bisping posted a photo on social media on Tuesday in the hospital undergoing a procedure that the middleweight champion was done to help his knee.

Bisping said in his post, “Just had a little final procedure done to my knee to help it help long term. No recovery, I’ll be in the gym later today, but I was sedated. They took fat from my stomach (liposuction) and injected it into my knee. Cutting edge stuff. Thank you @stevemoramd for helping and also for eliminating the need for some sit ups ๐Ÿ™‚ win, win!”

Michael Bisping is set to defend his UFC middleweight title against Georges St-Pierre but the UFC has yet to announce a date and location for the fight. Many fans will surely tune in as St-Pierre has not fought since November 2013 where he won a close split decision against Johny Hendricks after five rounds in their welterweight title fight.
