UFC 217: Georges St-Pierre Chokes Out Michael Bisping in Glorious Return

UFC 217

Three titles were on the line tonight at UFC 217, and all three belts changed hands.

In the main event, Georges St-Pierre choked out Michael Bisping with a rear-naked-choke in round three, after sending the now former 185 champ to the floor with a left. GSP, the former welterweight champ, was fighting for the first time since 2013.

T.J. Dillashaw reclaimed the bantamweight title, by dropping Cody Garbrandt with a ferocious right hook in round two, and then finished the bout with follow up punches.

At 115, Rose Namajunas ended the reign of Joanna Jedrzejczyk, by flooring the vaunted striker with a thumping left, and finishing the fight with a steady stream of punches.
