By Chris Taylor - November 5, 2017

Georges St-Pierre returned from a four year hiatus last night at Madison Square Garden where he had the “best night of his career” capturing the UFC middleweight title by submitting Michael Bisping in the main event of UFC 217.

The Canadian superstar, St-Pierre, put on one of the best performances of his illustrious career last night in New York which culminated in a third-round stoppage victory over “The Count”.

“GSP” dropped Bisping with a punch in the third-round and promptly began raining down some of his classic ground and pound on the brash Englishman.

Bisping would eventually give up his back which allowed St-Pierre to sink in a fight-ending rear-naked choke submission.

“The atmosphere last night at MSG was unreal… Feeling great today – Thanks everyone for making this the best night of my career!!! Merci!” – Georges St-Pierre

Earlier today, UFC President Dana White announced that Georges St-Pierre’s next fight would be a middleweight title unification bout between “Rush” and current interim title holder Robert Whittaker.
