“If that fight [with St-Pierre] happens in November or December then after I beat him, one more fight in England. My last fight would have to be here, the fans have always got behind me, every step of the way. I'm not saying 100 percent it'll be my final fight, but I can't fight forever. I'm in a good place right now but who knows!,” Bisping said to ODDS Bible.

Bisping was supposed to fight former UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre later this year, but then UFC President Dana White canceled the fight.

Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero are fighting for the interim middleweight title at UFC 213, the champion has also made his pick for who will win that fight.

“I think Whittaker will pull it off. I know everyone hypes about Romero but he's a juicehead. He tested positive not too long ago so I'd assume he's not on anything now as he doesn't want to get suspended again so the more time that passes, the advantages of those steroids will wear off. Whittaker is young, he's got good footwork and boxing, and I think he knocks him out in Round 4 or 5,” says Bisping.

The champion is expected to return to action later this year, as he has been dealing with a knee injury.
