Not only is the middleweight bout between Michael Bisping and Georges St-Pierre back on, both parties have agreed to the fight and it’s scheduled for UFC 217 at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 4, Ariel Helwani of MMAFighting.com reports, citing sources.

The fight has been on and off again since late February. UFC president Dana White declared the matchup dead in early July and targeted welterweight titleholder Tyron Woodley as GSP’s next opponent, but after Woodley failed to impress Saturday at UFC 214, White gave the green light to GSP-Bisping.

Bisping hasn’t fought since defeating Dan Henderson in his first title defense at UFC 204 in October of last year. St-Pierre’s last time in the Octagon was in November 2013 when he defended his welterweight title against Johny Hendricks.
