UFC 2017 – St. Pierre Vs Bisping – Nov 4 2017
A UFC Middleweight Championship bout between current champion and The Ultimate Fighter 3 light heavyweight winner Michael Bisping and former two-time UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre is expected to headline this event. The bout was originally announced in March, but without a date attached. As time wore on the contest appeared to fall apart, with UFC President Dana White claiming Bisping would fight interim middleweight champion Robert Whittaker next and St-Pierre would get current welterweight champion Tyron Woodley. When Woodley put on a successful title defense against Demian Maia at UFC 214 in July that didn’t meet White’s standards, and with Whittaker on a 6-month medical suspension, White reverted to the initial plan, which St-Pierre and Bisping said they wanted all along.
