Michael Bisping/Georges St-Pierre stare down at announcement press conference


A few weeks ago, the UFC announced the comeback of one of the organization’s most successful fighters, Georges St-Pierre. The UFC has set up a fight for UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping to defend his title against the returning octagon veteran. However, many have argued against this fight happening. They argue that the current number one contender, Yoel Romero, is deserving of fighting for the title instead of Georges St-Pierre, considering Georges St-Pierre hasn’t fought since 2013. In theory, this is most definitely true. The champion should always defend their title against the most deserving fighter: the number one contender. However, the UFC predicts that Michael Bisping fighting Georges St-Pierre will make more money than if Michael Bisping fought Yoel Romero. In turn, the UFC set up Bisping v. St-Pierre, leaving Yoel Romero to keep waiting.
