In new UFC 217 preview, Bisping says GSP was 'a little bitch' for vacating title in 2013


Don’t expect Michael Bisping to show much respect for his upcoming opponent – even a legend of the sport.

This past weekend at UFC 216, the organization released a trailer for its next pay-per-view offering: November’s stacked UF 217 card.

Bisping (30-7 MMA, 20-7 UFC), the UFC’s reigning middleweight champion and the all-time UFC wins leader, meets former longtime UFC welterweight champion George St-Pierre (25-2 MMA, 19-2 UFC) in the Nov. 4 headliner at Madison Square Garden in New York City. It’s one of three title fights on the card, but understandably, Bisping vs. St-Pierre is getting a lot of the spotlight.

In the new trailer, dubbed “Battle Cry,” the fighters, who recently mixed it up at a UFC 217 press conference, discuss the upcoming bout.

St-Pierre, the 36-year-old Canadian who posted nine consecutive title defenses from 2008-2013, discusses his decision to vacate the belt and walk away from the sport. According to St-Pierre and longtime trainer Firas Zahabi, he’s coming back as a new and different fighter – one with a clearer mind and new tools.

Bisping, though, seems hardly impressed, as he mentioned in both the recent press conference and the preview above.

“Georges retired when he did because he couldn’t take the pressure,” he said. “You can’t start feeling sorry for yourself because you’re a champion. You’re in the position that everyone wants to be in.

“It just shows what a little bitch he is.”

Check out the full trailer above.

The latest UFC 217 card includes:

  • Champ Michael Bisping vs. Georges St-Pierre – for middleweight title
  • Champ Cody Garbrandt vs. T.J. Dillashaw – for bantamweight title
  • Champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Rose Namajunas – for women’s strawweight title
