UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping is defending the gold against former UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre later this year.
Although an official date has yet to be set, the returning GSP has at least offered a time frame now to Bisping and the rest of the world.
That timeframe by GSP was given on a short video that he posted on Twitter:

“Mr. Bisping, I cleared my entire schedule to get ready for training camp after the summer,” St-Pierre said. “So, I can fight you any time after October. You pick the date. Let’s get it on.”
Bisping has yet to respond to the video posted by GSP, the champion once threatened to defend the gold against Yoel Romero instead of waiting for GSP.
The last time that GSP competed was over four years ago at UFC 167, while Bisping last competed at UFC 204.
