UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping defended his belt just weeks ago, but he's already calling for a new opponent - Georges St-Pierre.

In a series of tweets sent out by Bisping this week, the outspoken Brit stated that he'd already verbally agreed to fight the former welterweight champion who was rumored to be returning to the UFC before announcing his free agency earlier this month.

GSP responded to the challenge on Twitter, stating that he would love to take the fight, but it is unlikely to happen in time for UFC 206.

"I tried to resolve things, but unfortunately, right now, it's not happening," St-Pierre said.

According to ESPN's Brett Okamoto, Dana White says it's not going to happen either.

Of course, we all know that White is prone to changing his mind, so there may still be hope yet.

St-Pierre was vocal about wanting the fight originally with Bisping, but the champ was already slated for his rematch with Dan Henderson.

is currently billed with a headlining fight between light heavyweight champion, Daniel Cormier and Number 1 contender, Anthony Johnson.
