Georges St-Pierre signs contract to fight Michael Bisping

UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping announced last month that he would be fighting Georges St-Pierre at UFC 217 and now the former champion has shared a photo with a signed bout agreement, making the title fight finally official (again).

The bout will take place in the legendary Madison Square Garden.

After months bouncing from on-again, off-again status, the matchup between 185-pound champ Bisping (30-7 MMA, 20-7 UFC) and former welterweight titleholder St-Pierre (25-2 MMA, 19-2 UFC) is moving forward for UFC 217, which takes place November 4 at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

St-Pierre took to social media to officially announce the fight date, on Wednesday.

An eye injury forced St-Pierre to delay his comeback until at least November and it appeared the UFC was going to yank the fight with Bisping away from him. The Canadian was then briefly linked to a welterweight title fight.

When Woodley put on a successful title defense against Demian Maia at UFC 214 this past month that didn't meet White's standards, White reverted back to the initial plan, which St-Pierre and Bisping said they wanted all along.

Who do you think wins this fight between Georges St-Pierre and Michael Bisping? While he is undoubtedly one of the best to ever do it, he has never competed in the middleweight division.
