Michael Bisping vs Georges St Pierre Press Conference
Former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre will make his return to the Octagon. Against middleweight champion Michael Bisping for the 185-pound crown. The two face off at the Bisping vs St-Pierre press conference on Friday, March 3 at 5 pm/2 pm ETPT live from T-Mobile Arena.
Prior to the event starts, we will be shown one of GSP’s previous fights. When he won the welterweight title from the champion Matt Hughes. Having lost to Hughes at UFC 50 – The War of 04. St Pierre was gunning for the champion. And repeatedly called him out, begging the UFC to give him another shot. And at UFC 65 – Bad Intentions, the Canadian fighter from TriStar gym got exactly that.
It is with this legacy fight, that St-Pierre wen to on to dominate at 170 lbs. Did I mention he lost in his first title defence? Ok, besides the loss to Matt Serra at UFC 69, he dominated the division for six straight years. Making him the most successful welterweight champion of all time.
Now after four years away from the sport, he challenges for the middleweight champion Michael Bisping. Being the smaller of the two men, giving up a sizeable difference to The Count Bisping. Can Georges St-Pierre still overcome the bigger man and become a two-division champion. Let’s see how the Bisping vs St-Pierre pre-fight press conference plays out between these two clashing personalities.
