GSP has done what many in the MMA world have expected, he’s announced his return to the octagon.
GSP has made it clear that the new deal isn’t finalized but for all purposes ‘Rush’ is committed to a UFC return. There will be no warm-up fight if GSP gets his way because in the interview above he made it clear that he’s eyeing gold for his return fight.
“There are two things I’m very proud of,” St-Pierre said on The MMA Hour. “There’s my title — my welterweight title that I won — and there’s another record that I hold for the most wins in UFC history. And now I have someone who’s challenging me for it in Michael Bisping.
“I do not believe, if I fight him, he will send me back to a movie set. Yes, he’s bigger than me, but I believe I’ve got more skill, more athleticism, and a higher fighting IQ than he does. The world doesn’t turn around me, but if it’s a fight that the fans and the UFC want to make, they’ve got my number. They can call my agent, no problem. We can organize to make it happen and make an agreement.”
GSP vs Bisping
A fight against Bisping makes a lot of sense for GSP. He wouldn’t have to immediately cut down to his old weight of 170 lbs, but instead fight at a comfortable 185lbs. It’s also against an opponent that until recently was considered a light puncher. GSP has a great chance of defeating Bisping and then facing some of the other tough strikers in the middleweight division.
