- UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping understands why top contenders Yoel Romero, Luke Rockhold and Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza might be upset by his decision to accept a fight with Georges St-Pierre. But "The Count" doesn't really care.
"This fight was offered me last October, but it didn't work out. Then I got a call a week ago from Dana White and was offered the fight," Bisping said. "GSP is a legendary fighter. He's one of the biggest pay-per-view draws. This is a no-brainer. If you're Yoel Romero, Luke or Jacare, I know if you were offered this fight, you'd take this fight. I want this fight for my legacy. I've beaten Dan Henderson and Anderson Silva. Georges St-Pierre is another legend that I want to add to my resume."
Bisping won the belt last year vs. Rockhold and scored a successful title defense vs. Henderson. St-Pierre has been away from competition since a 2013 victory over Johny Hendricks. No date for the bout has been announced, but the two are expected to be in Las Vegas Friday for a special press conference.
