Don’t plan on seeing the UFC middleweight title defended until late in 2017.

Georges St-Pierre posted a video message to middleweight champion Michael Bisping on Friday, saying he’d be ready to fight for the belt “any time after October.” The bout has already been announced, but a timeframe has been up in the air until now.

“Mr. Bisping, I cleared my entire schedule to get ready for training camp after the summer,” St-Pierre said. “So I can fight you any time after October. Pick the date. Let’s get it on.”

This is getting ridiculous.....so Whittaker & Romero for an interim title?

What's the hold up? I was never excited for this fight anyways and the longer we go without it happening the less I care.

i think mousasi vs whittaker is a better fight that makes the most sence, romero already earned his shot and bisping should fight him in the meantime

I really hope Bisping punishes GSP, Bisping may be a dick and all and quite a few of the guys at MW could beat and finish him but the arrogance of GSP is really annoying.

What should happen:
Bisping vs Romero
Anderson vs GSP
Whitaker vs Mousassi
This keeps the title moving, has a big PPV fight, and sets up the #1 contender for a future fight...that is how you keep a division healthy, relevant, and filled with fighters and fans that understand the division. This fucking bullshit with GSP and Silva is retarded.

GSP should have held off on the announcement. Fans would have had it fresher in their minds to tune in. No doubt he will sell PPV's, but making us wait? Stupid. If Bisping is allowed to wait and fight GSP this makes the UFC look even worse. Their new M.O. under WME/IMG is turning into a HUGE black eye for the sport of MMA. No longer is it about the integrity of rankings and making fights that matter but making fights that ultimately push PPV buys. Sad.

It's been turning into WWE, and I don't like it.

I still don't see why we don't have Anderson vs gsp. Who is clamoring for Spitz vs gsp and why if you could instead have gsp vs Anderson?
