Bisping vs GSP Breakdown

The super fight between Bisping and GSP comes just at the right time for UFC.

Dana White had to work hard to bring back St. Pierre, who last graced an octagon in 2013.

 Bisping vs GSP

Michael Bisping is the heavy favorite going into the fight. He was very impressive in his win against Luke Rockhold.

He has held on to the middleweight title so far and in this fight he has a height and weight advantage over GSP.

Another factor is GSP’s lack of activity for the last 4 years. Sure, he must have been sparring and training but nothing can replicate the fight night conditions.

So he will be rusty.

GSP has the speed advantage on Bisping. And there is a reason he was considered the best MMA fighter in the world at the prime of his career.

He has dynamic fighting skills. His wrestling and athletic ability will give him a definite advantage inside the octagon at Madison Square Garden.

If GSP can pull off an upset, he will only be the 4th MMA fighter to be a champion in multiple weight classes.
