As Georges St-Pierre, the star UFC Legend gets prepared to feature in a comeback fight with Michael Bisping, he has also had the time to laugh off personal attacks from the former.
In a lively news conference held on Friday where their matchup was announced, St-Pierre and Michael Bisping, middleweight champion traded insults as the former makes a return to the MMA after about three and half years of absence.
Showing up to the conference 30 minutes late, the rambunctious Bisping immediately began throwing profane trash talk at the punctilious St-Pierre which the latter duly responded to with his own jabs.
In no time after he arrived, and even before anyone asked a question, Bisping challenged St-Pierre’s height, reach, toughness, and mental fortitude.
Going further, he poked fun at St-Pierre who did not have a belt unlike him.
“Hey Georges, where’s your belt?” Bisping asked, looking down at his own glittery strap. “You don’t have one. The sport moved on, buddy.”

Georges St-Pierre’s has been out of the UFC because his contracts have expired. However, his attorney’s Hochstadt and James Quinn, the head of Weil’s Litigation Department, are doing their possible best to secure a new contract for the fighter. Nonetheless, reports suggest that both sides are still far away from striking a bargain that would favor both sides.
One of his attorneys stated: “It’s fair to say that negotiations for UFC 206 have failed, and Georges are OK with that. He certainly tried with the UFC’s new management.” Read more »

Being a fan of Georges St Pierre means not missing out on his matches, like the one where he fought Nick Diaz at Montreal.
It was part of UFC 158. Of course, he has been missing at the ring for some time. For that reason, most media personnel pose the same question to him as do his fans through the social media outlets. He mostly talks vaguely when he is asked about his potential comeback and when would it be.
However, quite recently, he did offer more information about an upcoming fight. His mind set and what he is thinking about could be guessed from what he had to say. He stated that many people are asking him as to whether he would be challenging Robbie Lawler in the ring who is the current champion in the welterweight category. However, as far as he is concerned, he is not sure whether it would be Robbie Lawler, who he would be challenging or someone else when he decides to come back for a fight. It is also not sure whether he would be looking to challenge a title holder at that time. Hence, it is still unsure about when Georges will come back. Read more »
