Georges St-Pierre Thinks Bisping Fight is the Best Night of his Career

GSP is back!

One word, he is the Greatest UFC Fighter! You may agree or not but, he is definitely up there among other choices and last weekend he proved that he still has what it takes to become a champion again.
Yes he is huge, yes he may have slowed down but a big YES that he is still a better fighter than most of the current welterweights and the middleweights in the UFC and only time will tell if he would continue to be, especially now that he is rumored to be taking in Robert Whittaker next.

The best night of GSP’s career

I couldn’t agree more.
In front of thousands of fans in the Mecca of Sports, GSP convincingly won his second world title in as many division matching Connor McGregor’s feat. Certainly this is a great moment to remember for St.Pierre.
Georges St-Pierre (@GeorgesStPierre) tweeted at 6:13 AM on Mon, Nov 06, 2017:
The atmosphere last night at MSG was unreal… Feeling great today – Thanks everyone for making this the best night of my career!!! Merci!

Post Fight: Michael Bisping and his Surprising Words for Georges St-Pierre and Future Plans

Michael Bisping Lost to Georges St. Pierre

At 40 years old, Bisping acknowledges that he is not a young man after being choked out to sleep by the new middleweight champion Georges St. Pierre. 
An obviously frustrated Michael Bisping talks to a reporter about the fight and his plans and one of his immediate plans is to drink and get drunk.
He is a strong man and you can see! God Bless him, Good for him!- Michael Bisping
Bisping was doing great and was defending the takedown of GSP until that dreaded left hook in the 3rd that put him down and instigated the ground and pound and the final move that choked him to sleep.  
It is what it is, you have to take it as a man! – Bisping
Michael Bisping is certainly one of the most colorful fighters in the UFC and while he contemplates on his future we certainly like to see him back inside the octagon and kick some ass again. 
Check out the interview below.

UFC is different now, Bisping is the King of Middleweight
When Georges St. Pierre left the sport, Michael Bisping in 2013 was a different fighter.  Bisping had lost two of his last four fights then to Chael Sonnen in 2012 and Vitor Belfort in 2013. In 2014 Bisping predicament continued as he dropped two of his three fights in 2014 against tough contenders Tim Kennedy and Luke Rockhold.
In 2015, the wheels have turned and since April of 2015 he has not lost a single fight and has gone on to defeat his previous conqueror Luke Rockhold in a fight that also won him the UFC Middleweight belt and the performance of the Night. Bisping at 38 has now compiled 5 wins in a row including memorable fights with Anderson Silva and Dan Henderson. 
On November 4, at the Madison Square Garden, one man is looking to restart his MMA career by conquering an unchartered division while the other will try to prove that he belongs to the top as he spoils the return of one of the most prolific fighters that the UFC have seen.

UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping prepares for a unique title defense against longtime welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, who is coming out of retirement after four years. Bitter rivals and onetime teammates Cody Garbrandt and TJ Dillashaw will at last clash for the belt that Garbrandt now holds and that Dillashaw once wore. And dominant strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk readies for her next challenge in the form of unflappable former title challenger Rose Namajunas. Go inside the lives and gyms of these six athletes as they train to compete at the UFC’s historic return to Madison Square Garden.

How Angry was GSP with UFC? Very Angry!


We got this transcript from a reliable source and it’s looking dimmer and dimmer for UFC and GSP to work together.  This is too bad because GSP is a great fighter with a huge fan base while UFC is the best MMA promotion in the world. Could have been a perfect match but it looks like the relationship is not looking pretty good.

“I’m not going to tell you exactly what was said. But I was very pissed off and I used a lot of F words. … I was very angry, they did not support me because of the testing issues for the doping, they did not support me for the anti-doping. And I told them, why they didn’t support for this, and I didn’t understand it. I said ‘you guys need to wake up, because a lot of people are cheating, and stuff, and it’s a freaking joke. You guys are kind of protecting these guys, and it shouldn’t be like that.’ I was very angry.”

Tight sked for UFC champ in Manila

source: abs-cbnnews.com

UFC welterweight champion Georges St.- Pierre has his schedule strictly for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) events and for training in preparation for his December match with Josh Koscheck.

But despite the tight schedule, the pound-for-pound king is enjoying his stay in the Philippines.

“The first minute I stepped outside the plane, it was amazing. The food is very nice the people are very warm. I can’t complain, I’m having a great time,” he said in Mornings @ ANC on Friday.

Aside from the climate, St Pierre said it was a “dream come true” for him to visit the root of his Oriental martial arts style.

“I know traditional martial arts are Oriental, I came from an oriental martial arts background. I’ve always come to Asia, coming here to me is a dream come true. Hopefully, I can come to fight here, it would be great,” he beamed.

But in between promotions for UFC, which is planning to expand in the Philippines and in Asia, St Pierre will be training with Freddie Roach, who recently arrived in Manila to train boxing champion Manny Pacquiao.

Incidentally, Roach is also St Pierre’s boxing trainers. “I have lots of promotions, I train in my free time. I’m glad that Manny Pacquiao, Freddie Roach is here. He’s one of my trainers in boxing. I’m gonna work out with him later,” he said.

Aside from Roach, St Pierre will be training with a muay thai trainer from Thailand.

“I don’t have much time to relax. I’ll only sleep when I die,” he quipped.

Aside from food and climate, the UFC champion is also captivated by the Filipina beauty, which he called “exotic” and “unique.”

Filipino woman are very beautiful because they have an exotic side, unique for me. I’m a blue-eyed guy, I see girls like that all the time so when I come here and then I see women with almond eyes and little bit of a tan skin, its very sexy and beautiful,” he shared.

Not a stereotypical fighter

Contrary to his muscular built, St Pierre has a soft spot especially to people he cares for.

The champion admitted that he gets emotionally affected when people talk poorly about the people he loves.

“Say anything more about me, I won’t blink. I don’t mind, you can say anything about me, I don’t care. But when he talks about people around me I care, it bothering me more,” he shared, laughing as he did not initially want to share a weakness in television.

Further, the champion described himself as “nerdy guy” who likes to read about pre-historic life.

“I’m not the fighter stereotype–I’m a nerdy guy, I like to read. I’m really big into paleontology. I’m really passionate about paleontology, everything that I read is related to that,” he shared.

Additionally, St Pierre prays for him and for his opponent before stepping into the Octagon.

I pray for God to protect me and my opponent. That’s one thing I do all the time. I just hope that we (opponent) both stay healthy after the fight because we have family,” he said.

Additionally, St Pierre trains hard and smart to avoid injuries because he knew the longevity of an athlete depends on his physical state.

But more than his wins, St Pierre thinks that most of his supporters are rallying behind him because he had lost a number of times and he managed to win afterwards.

I believe you can be an inspiration to many people. I’ve noticed that when I started to have my fans building up was after my first loss with Matt Hughes. You know what? People in real life relate to people that loss.”

“They cannot relate to people who are undefeated. it’s hard because they lose in real life and when they see someone who is overcoming their loss and they can relate to that and get more inspired.”

Fighting philosophy

St Pierre also believes that he is not yet at the prime of his career and that he can improve more to become a better fighter. He also explained that going up another division to fight with middleweight champion Anderson Silva is not in his immediate plans.

“There is one thing: Guys that go up try to come down, and they have problems. The reason is the danger is not when you go up but when you go back down,” he started. “I have to make sure its the right time in my career.”

The UFC champion explained that he would like to master the welterweight division, fight with the best fighters, before climbing the division ladder.

“I wanna do it, one day. If everything sticks to the plan, if I keep winning, I clean up my division then the next logical challenge is to go up. But right now I still have a lot of competition,” he explained.

“No matter how people tell me how great I am, no matter how great I do, I always have one mistake to lose everything. This is one thing that I need to keep in mind. I made a mistake once and I’m never gonna do it again,” he added.

Not blinded by the heavy belt around his waist, St Pierre believes that even if he is a better athlete in a fight, the winner is still decided by who plays the best on the night of the competition, and to play his best had been his goal.

For St Pierre, fighting is more than the physical strength. He said that fighting is mostly a mind-game and the winner is the man who uses his mind more while in combat.

“It doesn’t mean that (because) I’m the best fighter means I will win the fight. It means that I have to do more than what I have. I have to fight the best fight. Its something I learned from experience,” he said. “I have to work on it, even the best can lose.” – With ANC

UFC heads to Canada for St-Pierre-Koscheck rematch

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will head to Canada in December for the rematch between welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and contender Josh Koscheck.

 

According to MMAjunkie.com, the promotion will hold the St-Pierre-Koscheck match as headliner for UFC 124 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

The report said UFC President Dana White wanted to capitalize on the supporters of the Canadian St-Pierre by staging the fight at the champion’s hometown.

St-Pierre and Koscheck have just finished their six-week shoot for “The Ultimate Fighter 12,” wherein they coached opposing teams of lightweights.

The fight, which will take place on December 11, will serve as the season-ending match between the show’s coaches.

The two first fought in UFC 74 where St-Pierre won by unanimous decision.

Meanwhile, White confirmed plans to hold a rematch between UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva and contender Chael Sonnen.

In a separate report by MMAjunkie.com, White said the Silva-Sonnen rematch is something MMA fans would want to see, especially after the exciting match between the two fighters in UFC 117.

“It’s definitely a rematch I think people are going to want to see,” White said. “Looking at Twitter, everybody is saying, ‘Rematch. Rematch.’ We’ll see what happens.”

In UFC 117 last August 7, Sonnen dominated Silva for four and a half rounds before the champion came out with a come-from-behind triangle-choke victory in the 5th round.

White, however, has yet to set a final date for the rematch. – With reports from MMAjunkie.com
