Michael Bisping's Still Hoping to Convince UFC to Stick With GSP Fight

A press conference occurred in March in which the English champion and the Canadian squared off for pictures and engaged with the press.

Bisping is now sidelined with a knee injury. Bisping is aware, however, that an interim championship fight could be on the horizon. We pride ourselves in taking a deeper look into the fighter, and understanding what makes them click. [St-Pierre] wasn't gonna be ready until October, November.

Romero (13-1) will get his first shot at UFC gold after tearing through the middleweight division with a ideal 8-0 record inside the Octagon.

In an interview with TSN recently, Dana White indicated that St-Pierre has now put aside his bid to fight for the middleweight title, and is now focusing in on the division he once ruled - welterweight.

"If [Bisping] can't fight this summer, we'll probably create an interim title between Romero and Robert Whittaker".

In addition to that, Dana White told ESPN that bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt is officially off of the July 8 fight card.

Both Romero and Whittaker have been on a tear for the past couple of years. This will be the second fight this year for the middleweight.

Whittaker (18-4) has also gone undefeated as a middleweight in the UFC with six straight wins, including a stunning knockout over former Strikeforce champion Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza in his last fight.

If an interim champion is crowned, it will be interesting to see who faces Bisping in late 2017.
