The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is gearing up for another exciting night of fights. This time, the mixed martial arts promotion is preparing for UFC 217.
The event is set to see the return of former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre. “Rush” has not competed inside the octagon for nearly four years. After a close decision victory title defense over Johny Hendricks in 2013, St-Pierre decided to call an end to his mixed martial arts career.
Of course, the former champion has since chosen to make a return to the octagon. For his highly anticipated comeback, Georges St-Pierre is moving up in weight to challenge UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping for his title in UFC 217’s main event.
The night is also set to feature two other exciting title fights. Bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt will be taking on former champion and former teammate T.J. Dillashaw in the night’s co-main event. Also on the main card, strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk will be looking to defend her belt from Rose Namajunas.
UFC 217 goes down Nov. 4 inside the Madison Square Garden Arena in New York and will be aired live on pay-per-view. For the full details on the night’s event, check out the information below:
