Chael Sonnen explains why Bisping’s size advantage won’t matter against GSP

EXCLUSIVE | Chael Sonnen explains why Bisping’s size advantage won’t matter against GSP.

UFC 217’s main event, a middleweight title fight between champ Michael Bisping and challenger [Georges…

“I like that fight,” Sonnen said on the latest episode of BJ Penn Radio. “I am picking Georges in that fight, but I really like it. I’ve competed with Bisping twice myself, once in MMA and once in grappling. Tough sonofa bitch. I’ve only trained with Georges, so maybe I come to you with a little different perspective, but it appears a lot of what’s being said about this fight is Bisping’s size. Anytime you talk about size, what you’re really talking about is, the [bigger] guy is stronger, right? We don’t really care about who weighs more, we care about who’s stronger than who. This is a weird one because Bisping is meaningfully bigger. He will cut to make 185, he will get into the ring about 200 pounds. Georges St-Pierre will weigh in about 183 pounds, he will get in the ring at 183 pounds. However – this might surprise you – Georges is meaningfully, meaningfully stronger than Bisping.”
