Well for the first time in months, the UFC has made a move that will keep fighters and fans happy, as they have officially pulled the rug out from under the Bisping vs. GSP Middleweight Title fight. Last week, GSP said he won't be ready until after October, which is a joke, and the fighters and fans let the UFC know that they were not okay with waiting that long for the Middleweight Belt to be defended. As a result, last night, Dana White said that the UFC will no longer wait for GSP, stating that he expected this fight to take place in the Summer, not Fall, and the UFC will target a title fight between Michael Bisping and Yoel Romero.
This is awesome news for everyone involved other than GSP and his camp, but honestly, they deserve no sympathy because they completely blew this and wasted everyone's time, so shame on them! Yoel Romero has been patiently waiting for his very deserved title shot, and finally, he will be given it. This is a dangerous fight for Michael Bisping because Romero is a beast (as you can visibly see from his picture above), and will certainly give Bisping problems, both standing and on the ground.
The Middleweight division had been very vocal about not only their disproval of GSP getting the title shot, with a plethora of worthy contenders already waiting, and former champ Luke Rockhold even called for all 185-pound fighters to boycott the division and not take any fights until the title shot was given to someone who deserved it. But it now seems, that for possibly the first time ever, the UFC Brass actually listened to the fighters who fill their pockets with cash, and did the right thing by taking GSP's title shot away, and giving it to someone who absolutely deserves it.
This is a good step forward for the UFC in moving back towards real fights, not just "big money" fights, and Bisping and Romero will not disappoint, and Bisping genuinely does not like or respect "the cheater" Romero, so this fight and the fight build-up will be fun for sure.
As far as GSP, I couldn't have lost more respect for him if I tried, and I truly couldn't care less if he ever steps back into the Octagon.
