UFC boss said he was sick and tired of waiting for the Canadian MMA icon to agree a date to dance with champion

MICHAEL BISPING’S sensational UFC middleweight title fight with Georges St-Pierre is NOT cancelled according to the iconic Canadian challenger.

England’s MMA hero has been growing tired of the delay in naming the date of the fight, with Bisping wanting a July showdown and GSP dithering over signing a deal with UFC.

St-Pierre is targeting Conor McGregor or middleweight champ Michael Bisping

“In this sport, among fighters, when one fighter gets an opportunity, it always leaves more fighters unhappy than happy.

“It’s the nature of a one-man sport. I’ve been there.”

On Wednesday, a clearly seething White appeared to bin the highly publicised bout, just weeks after a huge press conference sparked global interest.

The MMA matchmaker said: “I made this GSP fight. We did a press conference.

“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.”

Yoel Romero is the dangerous middleweight fighter who wants the title shot at Bisping.

The Brit king had previously ruled out facing Romero – as he has history as a steroid cheat – but he has warmed to the idea and is ready to rumble.
