UFC 221 Perth main event in the making: Whittaker vs Rockhold

UFC eying middleweight title fight between Robert Whittaker and Luke Rockhold Georges St-Pierre On Defending His Middleweight Belt: 'I Don't Think So'
Rita Gibson | 08 Декабря, 2017, 06:41

St-Pierre defeated Michael Bisping for the middleweight championship at UFC 217 on November 4.

St-Pierre also recently discovered he's battling ulcerative colitis and will be out indefinitely.

These comments essentially echo St-Pierre's previous statements regarding his future atop the middleweight division.

"Of course, in terms of weight, if I want to go back to compete at 185, obviously eating, like I did what I did, I learned from my mistakes", GSP said. GSP, the former long-time welterweight champion, came out of retirement just last month and snatched the title from the now former champion Michael Bisping, submitting the Brit in the third round. If St-Pierre were to defend the title, he'd have to face the heavy handed interim champion Robert Whittaker, who has been extremely impressive with an eight-fight winning streak.

The fight with Bisping was St-Pierre's first fight in four years and it was his first ever bout at middleweight.

As a result of the situation, St-Pierre becomes the first fighter in UFC history to vacate championship belts on two occasions. "I will be giving up my belt and once I'm healthy I look forward to working with the UFC to determine what's next in my career".

When St-Pierre defeated Bisping at UFC 217, he stated numerous times that it was contractually obligated that he defend the belt but health issues have put him on the sidelines for an undetermined amount of time. Rockhold faced top Middleweight and former World Series of Fighting Middleweight and Light Heavyweight champion, David Branch.

UFC 221 takes place February 10 from Perth, Western Australia.

Recently MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani reported that the UFC was looking at Whittaker - Rockhold for the Perth, Australia card, and now the outlet's reporting the bout is nearly finalized.

No news yet if GSP will make a second comeback in the UFC.
