Middleweight champ Michael Bisping and returning welterweight legend Georges St-Pierre are going to clash in the main event of UFC 217 on Saturday, and you know what each man is going to try to do.
For Bisping, it’s all about punching GSP to death – with his jab, with his combos, with a counter-hook whenever the Canadian changes levels.
For St-Pierre, it’s all about wrestling the Brit to the mat and holding him there.
That’s it. That’s all the technical variance we’re going to see. GSP might throw kicks to disrupt Bisping’s timing, and if he gets taken down, Bisping will threaten with a submission to create an opening to get back up. But any more than that… nah, ain’t happening.
Of course, UK commentating team Dan Hardy and John Gooden have more to say on the matter.
