When legendary veterans and middleweight rivals Georges St-Pierre and Michael Bisping posed together on Instagram, it grabbed everyone’s attention. Hilariously a comment popped on, saying “Quick, Masvidal him he is not expecting”, referring to the recent incident of ‘Gamebred’ punching Colby Covington outside the Papi Steak restaurant in Miami and breaking his tooth.

Bisping posted saying,

“Great to catch up with my old friend @georgesstpierre at the @fortheloveofmma event here in Manchester today and tomorrow. Thanks to everyone for coming out. So great to meet such friendly people”.

Notably, fans still remember their past rivalry for the middleweight title and bombarded the comment section with hilarious remarks.

They went on commenting,

“Michael definitely got flashbacks when GSP grabbed his back “

“Are you intoxicated??”

“That backdrop is a mess. You 2 been fighting again ?”

“GSP seems like such a nice dude, but Idk how you are resisting choking him out lol”

 “St Pierre with hair…. Looks incorrect. Hurts my brain”

Bisping and ‘GSP’ had their extraordinary fight at UFC 217. The fight gained enormous hype as St-Pierre returned after an absence of 4 years and planned to compete for the middleweight title. But the press conference and trash talks elevated the interest in the fight to a whole another level.

The fight spectacularly lasted three rounds, involving punches, elbows, leg kicks, and serious takedowns. Eventually, St-Pierre dominated to prove his comeback by choking out Bisping in the third round and winning the middleweight title via submission.

Georges St-Pierre, the greatest fighter of all times

‘GSP,’ as one of the UFC’s two divisional champions (welterweight and middleweight), is an ultimate UFC goat.

I hope Bisping didn’t feel the need to Masvidal him, because if he did, GSP would set a new record with that too.
