Michael Bisping Georges St-Pierre UFC 217

Earlier this month, top ranked middleweight Robert Whittaker defeated Yoel Romero to claim the interim UFC middleweight title in the main event of UFC 213. The fight was a particularly impressive one for Whittaker, as he fought through a knee injury to defeat Romero via decision.

This built on the lengthy saga of a Bisping vs. St-Pierre fight, which ultimately saw White declare that the winner of the Whittaker-Romero fight would secure a fight with Bisping.
