A First-Person Beatdown, Courtesy Of GSP — Does He Look Ready?

Georges St-Pierre has been away from the octagon for quite some time. The fighter put on a dominant run through the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight division during his mixed martial arts career. “Rush” retired as the UFC welterweight champion with a close decision victory over Johny Hendricks in 2013, ending the champion’s career on a dazzling 12 fight winning streak.

While St-Pierre initially ended his career with a staggering professional record of 25-2, the fighter has decided to make a return to the octagon after nearly 4 years away from the sport of mixed martial arts.

For his big return, “Rush” is moving up in weight to fight in the middleweight division. While St-Pierre has never competed in the middleweight class, the fighter will be challenging UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping for his title in the main event of Saturday’s UFC 217.

In promotion for the upcoming event, Georges St-Pierre has provided a new video of himself sparring. However, the video is from a new perspective. Watch in the video above, as St-Pierre takes out a fighter that is wearing camera gear to give you the first-person perspective of what it would be like to be on the receiving end of a St-Pierre beat down.

UFC 217 goes down Nov. 4 inside the Madison Square Garden Arena in New York and will be available live on pay-per-view.
