UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping has been advocating for a fight with former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre at UFC 206 in Toronto on December 10. And GSP has been in a negotiation with the UFC so bitter that the  fighter had declared he was a free agent.

Earlier this week UFC president Dana White said the fight was not happening at UFC 206. Now GSP has posted a message on his social network, confirming that the fight was not happening. But GSP also said he had met with new UFC head Ari Emanuel, and had made peace with White.

“Nothing would make me happier than fighting you in Toronto, Michael,” said GSP to Bisping. “Last week I met with Ari, and I made peace with Dana. I tried to resolve things, but unfortunately, it’s not happening. Hopefully things will change soon.

“Thank you.”

Unfortunately, there yet remains no date or opponent for St-Pierre’s return.

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

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.
