UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping was trying with all his might to get a reaction out of Georges St-Pierre at their UFC 217 Kick-off Press Conference on Friday.

St-Pierre is prepping for his upcoming UFC 217 fight against Michael Bisping on November 4 at Madison Square Garden - one that has already drawn tons of attention in the UFC world.

St-Pierre, for his part, remained fairly timid, asking Bisping if he was inebriated, much like he did in their last press conference. Bisping's volume and mockery seemed to be trumped by the intensity of St-Pierre's guarantees.

Along with this, St-Pierre was in attendance at UFC 196, which sparked rumours that the company were planting the seeds for a meeting between the two before McGregor eventually lost to Nate Diaz in what was his first welterweight bout. Things finally broke down during the face-offs when UFC president Dana White had to step in and keep them apart.

In a recent interview with ESPN, St-Pierre said it's certainly a possibility, but he doesn't have any plans to fight McGregor.

"Everything is possible but everybody is targeting Conor McGregor because the money", St-Pierre said.

He has repeatedly said that all of his attention is on that fight. But I don't challenge guys who compete in lower weight classes.

"That's why I've been preparing myself for more than six months to fight Bisping".

"He's an wonderful fighter and it would be an incredible honor", St-Pierre said. Those comments only spiked speculation as to whether St-Pierre could be thinking about challenging the lightweight champ. But, I don't know. "If the fans want it and he wants it maybe it will happen but right now, I'm focused on Bisping". More radical changes of direction have happened in the past, but St-Pierre said he's not going to attempt to move mountains for McGregor. "He wanted me to be there".
