GSP to Defend Middleweight Title Pending Bisping Victory


Former UFC Welterweight Champion Georges “Rush” St-Pierre recently appeared on The MMA Hour and revealed that should he defeat Michael “The Count” Bisping for the UFC Middleweight Championship, he is contractually obligated to defend the championship at least one time, most likely against Robert Whittaker. GSP gave the following statement:

“I have to defend my title,” St-Pierre said. “It’s written in my contract. I have to defend my title if I win.”

“That wasn’t my initial plan, but I understand the UFC’s point of view,” St-Pierre said. “They want to protect their titles. They don’t want to delay the defense of their titles, because they don’t want to make people wait.”

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.
