St-Pierre will face middleweight champion Bisping after all
TORONTO — The UFC has decided against matching Georges St-Pierre with current title-holder Tyron (The Chosen One) Woodley, opting instead to return to its original plan and have the Canadian star make his comeback against middleweight champion Michael Bisping.
UFC president Dana White made the announcement after Woodley’s calculated but drab title defence against Brazilian submission ace Demian Maia at UFC 214 on Saturday night. White said there was no date set yet.
The 36-year-old St-Pierre, who has not fought since November 2013, reacted to the news with a thumbs-up and happy face emoji in a text to The Canadian Press.
