We’re less than two weeks out from Georges St-Pierre’s return at UFC 217, and Joe Rogan is hearing the November 4th event is not selling well.

St-Pierre will take on middleweight champion Michael Bisping at the event, which will take place at Madison Square Garden in New York City. During a recent episode of Rogan’s podcast, “The Joe Rogan Experience“, the UFC commentator said this (quote via Bloody Elbow.com):

“Bisping vs. GSP. Now, I’m hearing, that it’s not selling well, Madison Square Garden,” Rogan said. “That’s unfortunate.”

“Here’s the thing, though. If you really stop and think about it, that was four years ago since (St-Pierre) last fought Jonny Hendricks. The people that are into the UFC now, they’re post-Ronda Rousey, post-Conor McGregor, the casual fans.”

UFC 217 will also feature strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk taking on Rose Namajunas, and bantamweight champ Cody Garbrandt versus former teammate, TJ Dillashaw.
