UFC President Dana White has dropped a bombshell by stating that the middleweight title fight between Michael Bisping and Georges St-Pierre is off.
The fight between the two was announced in March, however, there has been no confirmed official date, with "GSP" recently tweeting that he could only fight after October.
With the fight also initially expected to take place in July, it now looks like it could happen only in November with St-Pierre hinting that it could take place in New York.
The constant delays with the fight have frustrated fans and fellow middleweight fighters alike and it looks like White has also become annoyed with how long it is taking for the fight to materialize as he claimed Bisping will have to defend his title now.
"I made this GSP fight, we did a press conference," he told FOX Sports Australia UFC Fight Week. "The thing was supposed to happen in July. Michael Bisping is going to have to defend his title now. We're not waiting for GSP."
"Georges St-Pierre was coming back. Bisping-St-Pierre - they both wanted that fight. We asked Yoel to step aside, he did. It doesn't look like that fight is gonna happen now. Georges St-Pierre is saying he will not be ready to compete now until November. Who knows if that's even the case. It could be next year.
"So we're not waiting for Georges St-Pierre anymore. We're moving on with the division, and Yoel Romero will get the next shot."
Romero was expected to face Bisping in May after defeating Chris Weidman at UFC 205 in November 2016. However, his title shot was hijacked by the returning St-Pierre but White has reassured the Cuban that he will undoubtedly be next in line for the Briton's title.
"(Yoel) doesn't need to voice his opinion on why he needs a title shot," he added. "He definitely deserves a title shot. He's next in line, he's the No.1 ranked guy in the world."
While White's comments will come as a relief to the rest of the middleweight division, the fight is not officially off yet, with some speculating that his comments are only a scare tactic to put pressure on St-Pierre.
