Georges St-Pierre Will Challenge Michael Bisping in UFC Return


Little by little, Georges St-Pierre‘s return to the Octagon is becoming real.

UFC president Dana White on Wednesday revealed via SportsCenter that St-Pierre's first fight back in the UFC would be a challenge for the belt. Only, it won't be in the welterweight division that St-Pierre once dominated.

When St-Pierre sets foot back in the Octagon, it will be opposite UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping.

St-Pierre stepped away from the sport in November of 2013 after making the ninth consecutive defense of his UFC welterweight championship.

His entire time out of the Octagon, St-Pierre never said never to a return, frequently teasing a comeback.

He had been in the thick of negotiations with former owner Lorenzo Fertitta in 2016, targeting a return opposite Bisping. Negotiations fell apart during the change of UFC ownership, but were rekindled in 2017, culminating with White announcing that St-Pierre had signed a new deal in mid-February.
