After a three and a half year absence Georges St Pierre is set to return to the UFC octagon. He will face Michael Bisping for the title.
That has a lot of MMA purists upset that on his return he is fighting for a belt. Unfortunately the UFC isn’t about building competition anymore, it is about making money and paying off billions of dollars in debt.
That being said, it is the perfect return fight for GSP because he is facing an opponent many fans despise and there aren’t many better than Bisping at taking up a fight. The UFC will be happy with the PPV buys and excited about rebuilding a Canadian audience that seemed to decline after GSP left the sport.
