- Georges St-Pierre will fight Michael Bisping for the UFC middleweight championship when he returns instead of Tyron Woodley. Dana White had originally said that Woodley would get GSP if he successfully defended the UFC welterweight championship against Demian Maia at UFC 214 on Saturday night. However, Woodley's performance where he broke a record for the least amount of punches thrown in a five-round title fight upset White to the point where he decided a change was necessary. In comments to the media after UFC 214, White told reporters that he knows Bisping will fight GSP and that Woodley breaking a record speaks for itself.
