Bisping vs GSP in Toronto? White Puts Down Speculation

GSP holding Carlos Condit down at UFC 157.

UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping has some time on his hands.

#2 Chris Weidman fights #4 Yoel Romero at UFC 205 on November 12, 2016, at Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York. #3 Jacare Souza fights #1 Luke Rockhold at UFC Fight Night 101 on Nov. 26, 2016, in Melbourne, Australia. Whoever wins most spectacularly presumably gets a shot at ‘The Count’.

In the meantime, Bisping has been advocating for a fight with former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, who is in an acrimonious negotiation over a potential return to the UFC.

However, UFC president Dana White told MMAjunkie that the fight is not happening.

“There is no Bisping vs. ‘GSP’ fight in Toronto,” said White. “I know Mike wants it but it’s not happening.”

In the meantime, UFC 206 is coming, wedged a little tightly between UFC 205 on November 12, the biggest event in UFC history, and the return of Ronda Rousey at UFC 207 on December 30, 2016, at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
