While there has been no official word yet on whether or not Georges St-Pierre will actually return to the Octagon, St-Pierre has expressed his desire to return to the Octagon and fight Michael Bisping.
That has prompted UFC middleweight #1 contender Jacare Souza to call St-Pierre out for a middleweight fight. Surprisingly, Souza put the former welterweight champion on blast!
He spoke on The MMA Hour:
“St-Pierre never fought at middleweight. I don’t know what he’s doing here,” said the Brazilian. “To me, he’s a chicken. If I get him, I’ll break him in half. He’s retired and wants to fight for the title in a division he never fought before? He always ran away from Anderson (Silva), ran from fighting at 185, and now he wants the belt?”
“Look, I’ll give him this chance, and it’s going to be easy for me,” he continued. “I would pass on fighting for the belt only to fight him if he moves up. He’s a chicken. If he wants to move up, I would let Bisping for later, since I know I’m the next in line. If he wants to move up, I want him. I will break his neck.”
It is important to mention that Jacare is the presumptive #1 contender at middleweight. Following his UFC 198 win over Vitor Belfort, Souza was forced to undergo surgery, but has since revealed that he is ready to fight when need be.
