UFC 217 emanated tonight (Saturday, November 4, 2017) from Madison Square Garden in New York, NY. The biggest card of the year was topped by a championship tripleheader.

The main event saw the return of Georges St. Pierre against middleweight champ Michael Bisping. GSP looked in vintage form, largely outstriking the champion and taking him down on multiple occasions. He dropped Bisping with a left hand and pounced, jumping on the Brit’s back and choking him unconscious.

In the co-headliner, Cody Garbrandt defended his title for the first time opposite former teammate TJ Dillashaw in a grudge match for the ages. After nearly knocking out the challenger at the very end of round one, Garbrandt found himself on the business end of a head kick followed soon after by a left hook. Follow-up shots separated Garbrandt from his senses entirely, as Dillashaw regained his title.

The first title fight of the night featured inimitable strawweight queen Joanna Jedrzejczyk looking to turn back challenger Rose Namajunas. In the most stunning result of the night, “Thug” Rose smashed Jedrzejczyk for a first-round knockout, dropping her twice along the way.

Three titles changed hands during the historic event. See how Twitter reacted to these explosive title tilts below:
