BREAKING: Dana White Confirms Michael Bisping Vs GSP UFC Middleweight Title Fight

Huge news is breaking in the world of Mixed Martial Arts, with UFC President Dana White confirming that returning legend and arguably the greatest fighter in MMA history, Georges St-Pierre, will mark his return to the octagon with a Middleweight Title bout against Michael Bisping.

GSP hasn't been seen in the UFC since 2013, when he announced he was taking a sabbatical from the sport.

In the meantime, Bisping has conquered the Middleweight division, stunning the world when he defeated Luke Rockhold for the belt at UFC 199, last June as a late replacement for the injured Chris Weidman. The British fighter followed that up with a successful defence in Manchester against Dan Henderson at UFC 204.

It was expected that Bisping's next defence would be against number one contender Yoel Romero, who defeated Weidman at UFC 205 with a devastating flying knee. However, a re-signed St-Pierre is too big of a draw for Dana White to ignore, and it would appear 'The Soldier of God' has been overlooked.

UFC expert Ariel Helwani kept fans updated with the breaking news, which includes a press conference being announced for this Friday in Las Vegas to officially announce the fight, although no date is currently set for the bout.

It had been rumoured that GSP's return bout could be a dream fight with Lightweight Champion Conor McGregor, although this apparently was never on the cards.

St-Pierre has won his last 12 fights, with his final victory coming against Johny Hendricks via split decision at UFC 167 in November, 2013.

We cannot wait to see this fight!
