Georges St-Pierre Putting Michael Bisping to Sleep Sends Twitter into a Frenzy

November 5, 2017

When Georges St-Pierre walked away from fighting four years ago, he left as a UFC champion. He stepped back into the octagon on Saturday for the first time since November 2013 in the UFC 217 main event against middleweight champion Michael Bisping. When he walked out of the cage, he had the 185-pound belt around his waist.

A bigger St-Pierre showed that he can still compete against the best in the world. He won the first round and put Bisping away in the third. “Rush” dropped Bisping with a left hand and followed “The Count” to the canvas looking for a finish. After landing heavy punches and elbows, St-Pierre took Bisping’s back and put him to sleep with a rear-naked choke. After the submission win, fighters reacted to St-Pierre’s return via Twitter.
