    After a four-year hiatus, UFC legend George St-Pierre (GSP) is set to make his return to the Octagon at UFC 217 to challenge Michael Bisping for the middleweight championship.

    GSP has not fought since November of 2013 and has never fought at the 185 lbs middleweight division, a step up from his normal 170 lbs welterweight division. Despite this GSP has not lost a fight in ten years and is coming off an 11-fight winning streak.

    His fight record is currently 25-2. GSP is one of the best fighters the UFC has ever had and would easily rank in the top ten all time best fighters in UFC history.

    The 36-year-old decided to challenge the middleweight champion as he always said that he would make the step up to middleweight by temptations of a super fight with middleweight legend and champion at the time Anderson Silva.

    Since this is not possible at the moment, GSP is challenging Bisping.

    Bisping record is 30-7 and he is coming off and successful defence of his title last year defeating Dan Henderson in the fight of the night at UFC 204 in October last year. Bisping has also beaten UFC legend Anderson Silva at a UFC fight night in London last year.

    The UFC is at a crossroads with the return of Gsp as casual fans may not know who he is but hardcore fans are a buzz as they remember his dominance of the UFC in the early 2010 as he is better than current big names ever were/are or ever will be.

    Unlike Ronda Rousey he can take a punch and unlike Conor McGregor he defends he titles. He does this all with being one of the most professional athletes ever, no big mouthing, no flamboyance just lets his fighting do the talking.

    Bisping on the another is a WWE type big mouth and does not have the professional of Gsp. He is looking to add Gsp to his list a legend killed.

    The fight is to take place November 4, 5, in Australia at the world most famous area the Madison Square Garden.
