George St-Pierre rather wants the duel to take place after the summer

George St-Pierre does not seem to worry about the warning of Michael Bisping. The British middleweight champion said a little more than two weeks ago that GSP had to accept the challenge in July, otherwise he was going to offer a fight to the number one aspirant of the division, Yoel Romero.

“I think he’s lying. He wants to fight me and I want to fight him. This fight will give him more money. It comes down to his decision. If he wants this duel to take place, I’m starting. That is what I am preparing for.” St-Pierre told media.

“If things change, I’ll have to find another option. This is not a problem. But he has the belt and he is the one with the greatest value presently. I always aim for the highest guy.” former welterweight champion added.

During this interview, GSP (25-2 MMA, 19-2 UFC) reiterated that he believed that his confrontation with Bisping would take place after the summer season. He explained his reinstatement in the anti-doping program as a reason.

Nevertheless, the American Anti-Doping Agency plans four months of tests to be able to re-enter the rank of the UFC. New regulations have stipulated since April 1 that this period should increase to six months. But the fight between GSP and Bisping having been formalised in January, it was well before the change so that St-Pierre will be reinstated before July 2017.

“There is no date yet due to the process with the US Anti-Doping Agency for anti-doping tests. To be able to fight, I must have passed the reintegration process. There are also other things happening and we should have a schedule soon.” GSP confirmed media.

“It will be his only advantage. Technically, tactically, athletically, I gave the advantage over him. It does not bother me that he’s taller and bigger than me. The only difference is when it strikes the carpet, it will make a bigger [boom],” said GSP.
