Not only is Georges St-Pierre a UFC champion once again, but he has once again made his way back to the promotion’s pound-for-pound rankings.

“GSP” made his highly-anticipated return to mixed martial arts (MMA) competition this past weekend in the main event of UFC 217 on pay-per-view (PPV) from the Madison Square Garden arena in New York City. Rather than return to his former championship weight class of 170 pounds, the Canadian decided to try his hand at challenging middleweight title-holder Michael Bisping. After a fairly back-and-forth affair; St-Pierre connected with a hellacious shot on “The Count” that dropped him, allowing “Rush” to lock in a rear-naked choke that would put Bisping to sleep.

Now St-Pierre rules as the new champion at 185 pounds, with interim champ Robert Whittaker looming in the shadows waiting to see if he’ll get a crack at the future UFC Hall Of Famer. The card also saw two other titles changed hands as TJ Dillashaw downed ex-Team Alpha Male teammate Cody Garbrandt to reclaim the 135-pound throne, and Rose Namajunas pulled off an Upset Of The Year candidate by knocking out former strawweight queen¬†Joanna¬†Jedrzejczyk.
