Woodley Calls Out Bisping Again

Though it was announced last month that Georges St. Pierre would be returning to fight Michael Bisping for the middleweight title, Bisping’s recent comments have complicated the situation. Now, welterweight champion Tyron Woodley has chimed in once again.

Bisping spoke out earlier this week, claiming that he was unwilling to wait for St. Pierre if the former welterweight champ would not be ready until the fall or the end of the year. Bisping wants to fight during International Fight Week in July, and if St. Pierre needs more time, then he will look to give Yoel Romero his title shot.

On Wednesday’s edition of UFC Tonight, current welterweight champion Tyron Woodley threw his name in the ring yet again.

“I think that if you make the fight, you say you’re going to fight this individual, July’s a great date, International Fight Week, you take the fight then. I don’t know when this September thing is coming in. I think Georges St-Pierre’s playing games with us,” Woodley said. "He didn’t want to fight me. He went up to middleweight, talking about going down to lightweight.

“So Michael Bisping, I stand on that offer, 10 toes down. If you want to get it on July 8, I will be there and I will be ready.”

Bisping then responded on social media, throwing shade at Woodley’s performance in his last fight against Stephen Thompson at UFC 209:

Woodley and Bisping then continued to go at it from there:

Though Woodley and Bisping may want to fight each other, it is far-fetched that that fight would ever happen. The UFC and Bisping will surely wait for St. Pierre, given the fact that Bisping vs. St. Pierre has already been announced and is the biggest fight that can be made in the UFC right now with McGregor missing in action.
