Now that Georges St-Pierre is out of a proposed Middleweight bout against division champion Michael Bisping, the 185-pound weight class is no longer clouded.

So what’s next for the former UFC Welterweight champion of the world? It’s back to his old stomping grounds, as company president Dana White has confirmed that “Rush” will now fight for the 170-pound strap when he’s good and ready.

What the actual fuck. I really hope this doesn't bump Maia. I hope Woodley takes on a very, very rightfully deserving Maia. And then winner gets GSP? This whole UFC/GSP thing is a cluster fuck. Fuck Dana & the UFC. Fuck GSP. And most of all, fuck WME/IMG. Hell, fuck acronyms.

The Maia element here is really disappointing, but I do think it's cool that Bisping has to sack up and fight Romero now. Dude doesn't mention his injury delaying the GSP fight, Romero gets announced to fill in, immediately Bisping is too injured to fight. Sorry Michael, you're going to have to fight an actual Middleweight who isn't (quite) 46.

I hope this is true. I want to see Woodley put that backpack Maia on him and get strangled. And then as much as ive always liked GSP. I hope Maia strangles him too.

GSP would jab Maia to death. Every scramble would be intriguing as hell though.

Lots of time for them to give Maia his title shot before November though. There's no reason the WW title should go from March to November without being defended.

Yeah, but I am not so sure on how interesting the fight would be especially coming off that long a layoff you know GSP is just going to point his way to a victory.

Woodley fights Maia over the summer, say July......then winner should taken GSP on in November. Time tables seem about right. They just need to get going with booking this Woodley/Maia fight.
