Georges St-Pierre meets Michael Bisping for UFC 185-pound title

UFC President Dana White announced that Michael Bisping will defend his belt against former UFC welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre.

 It will be St-Pierre’s first fight in the UFC since taking a break from the sport in 2013, and will be the first fight for the former champion outside of the welterweight division.

The fight’s date and location has not been finalized, though White said St-Pierre “probably will not fight” in Canada.

“It’s probably going to be Las Vegas,” White said.

St-Pierre (25-2 MMA, 19-2 UFC) and Bisping (30-7 MMA, 20-7 UFC) will face off Friday at a press conference in Las Vegas, which hosts Saturday’s UFC 209 at T-Mobile Arena.
