Georges St-Pierre is not impressed by Michael Bisping’s technique.

St-Pierre is set to return to active mixed martial arts (MMA) competition for the first time since Nov. 2013. He will be greeted to an Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) middleweight title bout against the champion Bisping. It’ll be “Rush’s” first professional MMA bout as a 185-pounder.

Many who feel Bisping will nab a win in the fight point to his size advantage as a key to victory. St-Pierre feels differently as he believes in the saying, “the bigger they are, the harder they fall.” St-Pierre explained to RT Sport (via why he’ll become the new middleweight kingpin:

“Of course, Michael Bisping will be bigger than me, but that will be the only advantage he will have. I believe technically, tactically, athletically, I got all the edge on him. It doesn’t matter if he’s taller or bigger than me. The only difference it’s going to make is that when he hit the floor it’s going to make a bigger boom. I’m not a big welterweight. I’m an average, middle-sized welterweight. Now that I had some time off, I took the time to gain a little bit of weight. So I made sure it’s well done.”
