Former UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre is challenging UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping for the gold later this year.
GSP feels that the only advantage Bisping brings to the fight is his superior size, but that will make it all the sweeter for the challenger when the champion hits the floor.
“Of course Michael Bisping will be bigger than me but I believe that will be the only advantage that he will have — his size. Technically, tactically, athletically, I have all the edges on him. It doesn’t matter if he’s taller and bigger than me. The only difference that it’s gonna make is when he hits the floor, it’s gonna make a bigger boom,” GSP said to RT Sport.
The former welterweight kingpin will be making his middleweight division debut when he faces Bisping for the championship.
After the fight with Bisping, the returning GSP does have a plan for future fights, but he hasn’t revealed much of that plan yet.
“It’s a very ambitious plan [Bisping laid out],” he said. “I have a plan in the back of my head but I’m not gonna talk about it right now because I’m not a talker, I’m a doer. A lot of people need to talk to promote themselves. Everybody knows who’s who here. I’m not a new fighter. They know who I am. My fights talk by themselves, my resume talks by [itself]. It’s gonna depend on what’s gonna happen and how it’s gonna happen when I fight Michael Bisping. When this fight will be finished, I will go to reorient my career but it could be anything.”
When GSP finally does return to the Octagon later this year, it will be his first bout in just over three years.
