Back in early June, Michael Bisping knocked out Luke Rockhold in the main event of UFC 199 to claim the UFC middleweight championship. Since then, Bisping has found himself being called out by nearly the entire middleweight division. In addition, Bisping revealed that former UFC welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre had contacted his team about a fight.
St-Pierre hadn’t fought since his 2013 split decision win over Johny Hendricks, and while rumors have continually surfaced that St-Pierre will return to the Octagon, this remains the only time St-Pierre’s team officially requested a fight.
Bisping spoke on Sirius XM‘s Rush to discuss the situation:
“I have nothing against Georges St-Pierre apart from the fact that he retired from the sport and was like, ‘No, I can’t do it because people are taking performance enhancing drugs.’ Well guess what, they were and they’re getting caught. But if you’re a man, if you’re a fighter, if you’re not a little bitch, you’ll still continue to take those chances and try to beat those people. You won’t run away to the shadows and disappear because you think you can’t compete. I’m not the coward. I’m not the coward that needs to takes steroids to compete with these guys. And I would have thought that Georges St-Pierre was man enough also to have the same attitude.”
