It has been over three years since Georges St-Pierre fought in the UFC and is slated for his return to the Octagon against UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping. Although the fight date has not been announced, many fans are anxious to see the how the former welterweight kingpin will do after the long layoff and going up a weight class.
“Rush” will be going from the 170-pound welterweight limit up to the 185-pound middleweight limit where Bisping will likely be the bigger competitor. With the fight being arranged, St-Pierre recently said that he has been putting on weight and is the biggest he’s ever been in his life.
Recent footage showed a shirtless St-Pierre doing a photo shoot where many took notice on how the former champ was looking different and Bisping commented his physique.
“I don’t know what’s going on, to be quite frank. But, uh, he looks like he has been impregnated by an alien,” Bisping recently said on his Believe You Me podcast (starting at 6:50 of the video above).
“He’s in his typical gear, GSP little spandex tighty shorts but they’re black, not white. He’s got his shin pads and MMA gloves on and a gigantic belly,” Bisping said. “His belly is sticking out and he looks a little weird so I think he’s trying to have fun or trying to lead me up the garden path. I think he’s pushing his belly out.”
Bisping went on to say that he does not think the fight will happen in July like he had spoken with the UFC about but it’s a bit of a relief to give his injured knee more time to heal.
