Michael Bisping has spies watching GSP, promises first-round KO at UFC 217


UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping (30-7 MMA, 20-7 UFC) puts his belt on the line against former welterweight title holder and all-time MMA great Georges St-Pierre (25-2 MMA, 19-2 UFC) in the main event of November’s blockbuster UFC 217 event.

While it’s no surprise that with any Michael Bisping fight comes a little trashtalk, “The Count” is rolling out a new wrinkle ahead of what could be his final UFC fight.

As the two fighters ramp up preparation for the Nov. 4 fight card at New York’s Madison Square Garden, Bisping took a moment on the latest edition of his “Believe You Me” podcast to tell co-host Luis J. Gomez that he has spies monitoring St-Pierre’s training.

“(St-Pierre) is actually in LA a lot these days,” Bisping said. “He’s been at the Wild Card Boxing gym, training with Freddie Roach. I have a couple of spies in there, by the way, and they told me some info.

“Georges, if you’re listening buddy, that’s a public domain. I know people in there. I know what you’re working on, pal. I know what you’re working on, and it ain’t going to work on me, Georgie boy.”

Oddsmakers currently have St-Pierre listed as a slight favorite, but with nearly five years away from competition, there certainly a few question marks surrounding the French-Canadian.

But Bisping believes predicting the outcome is simple. As the bigger man, not to mention the current champion, Bisping believes he’ll end the fight impressively – and early.

“Generally, when I fight wrestlers in the past, I move around a lot,” Bisping said. “I utilize a lot of lateral movement, forward and back movement, side to side, because if you’re moving, it’s hard for a wrestler to shoot a double leg on you because you’re a moving target. I won’t be doing that this time.

“I’m going to stand right in front of him, I’m going to plant my feet, I’m going to walk him down, put him on the back foot, and I’m going to knock him out in the first round. You have my word.”
