Things got heated today between UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping and former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre.
The two were in Toronto, Canada in attendance for another press conference to promote their UFC 217 fight that will take place at the Madison Square Garden in New York on November 4.
At the end of the press conference, UFC President Dana White had the two opponents line up for a staredown and things got a bit physical between the two. Dana White posted a video from his point of view where you can catch audio of what was being said between Bisping and St-Pierre.
In the video footage from the angle shot from the crowd’s point of view, it looks like Bisping touched St-Pierre’s face with his finger as he was talking smack to the former UFC welterweight kingpin. That’s when St-Pierre had enough and shoved Bisping as White immediately got between the two.
There is surely a lot of tension being built up between the two opponents as Bisping never fails to bring a strong mental war leading up to his fights.
Do you Michael Bisping is getting in Georges St-Pierre’s head? Will Bisping’s mental game have any effect on St-Pierre’s performance? Will Bisping be able to throw GSP off his game plan and fight emotionally? Let’s discuss this in the comment section!
