Georges St-Pierre on Michael Bisping Trash Talk: “He’s Got a Negative View of Himself”
By FCF Staff
Michael Bisping hasn’t been shy about sending verbal shots Georges St-Pierre’s way in recent months, but it doesn’t sound like the trash talk’s getting to the former welterweight champ.
Since the UFC first announced its plans to have GSP and Bisping fight, the latter’s criticized the star for walking away from the sport, and has also warned the Canadian he’s getting in over his head.
“He’s projecting his own image,” said St-Pierre. “For him, he wants to prove that he’s more than an easy fight and he’s got a negative view of himself. He’s got a lot of holes that he cannot fill up. He’s a very angry person deep down inside, and angry fighters make a lot of mistakes.”
St-Pierre will challenge Bisping for the middleweight title in the headliner of UFC 217, which will take place on November 4th at Madison Square Garden in New York City.
The fight will mark the first time St-Pierre has fought since 2013, when he announced he was taking a hiatus from fighting.
