In the main event of UFC 199, Michael Bisping knocked out Luke Rockhold to claim the UFC middleweight championship. While many want to see a rematch with Luke Rockhold, or even a rematch with Dan Henderson for Bisping’s first title defense, former welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre is reportedly interested in returning to the Octagon for a fight with Bisping.
On a recent episode of Fox Sports Live with Jay & Dan, Bisping revealed that GSP’s camp actually reached out to request a title fight against the champ:
“I actually had some people reach out to me and say ‘Georges St-Pierre is interested in fighting you,’ and I said ‘Really?’ – Something that I didn’t expect. Some people from his camp. I was like ‘Really? Wow. Okay. Okay…’”
St-Pierre hasn’t fought since UFC 167, where he picked up a controversial split decision win over Johny Hendricks to retain the UFC welterweight championship. Since then, there has been much speculation as to when, or if, GSP will ever return to the Octagon.
With GSP’s camp actually reaching out for a fight with Bisping, do you think we will finally see the former champ come out of retirement for a superfight with Michael Bisping?
