Since it was announced that GSP will fight Bisping next, the former welterweight champ has stopped short of saying what he hopes to do, if he wins the 185 title. As a result, many of speculated that the Canadian has no intention of defending the middleweight belt, if he secures it.
“Here’s what I think GSP’s plan is. He comes back, he fights me, he beats me. In the time that takes, Demian Maia beats Jorge Masvidal then he fights Tyron Woodley. [St-Pierre] believes – because he said this – that Maia beats Woodley. Then, from him fighting me, he fights Maia, relinquishes the 185-pound belt, then he goes for the 170 belt. He fights Maia because stylistically it’s a good fight for him because Georges is a great wrestler and he’s very, very accomplished at jiu-jitsu…
“Then from there – he’s spoke about this – then he’s gonna relinquish that and then fight Conor McGregor for the lightweight belt. That is his master plan, I guarantee it…”
That definitely would make GSP the greatest fighter to date, as Bisping also added. So, could this be on point? It’s certainly possible. Although, since GSP has already held the 170 title in the past, maybe he’ll look to fight McGregor next? Rather than attempt to reclaim the welterweight belt?
Of course, first things first, and that’s Mr. Bisping. A date for the planned fight has yet to be set.
