The title fight between welterweight champion Tyron Woodley and No1 contender Demian Maia taking place at UFC 214 that is proving to be a historic event has opened up a window of opportunity for GSP that will go down well with all fans unlike his push for Middleweight title shot against Michael Bisping which wasn’t received well by fans as that division was already on hold.
GSP will face the winner of Woodley VS Maia title fight, hopefully later this year.
Dana White confirmed it while taking to MMA Junkie,
“George and I talked couple of days ago when he was in Vegas ,”
“George is saying he wants to fight ; we will get this thing figured out. We are talking about Tyron Woodley and Demian Maia … these two are going to fight soon. That will free up the 170-pound championship for George St-Pierre to return and try to regain his belt.”
This should have been the plan from the start for George’s return but if everything goes right then George could capture the title and if Bisping defends his title then we can see the UFC’s original plan be fruitful and it will go down well with fans too. Never say never…it can actually be huge this way.
