It’s Monday morning and I’m still like “holy shit.”
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) returned to the pay-per-view (PPV) market last Saturday night (Nov. 4, 2017) for UFC 217: “Bisping vs. St-Pierre,” which took place inside Madison Square Garden in New York City.
The promotion’s most recent mixed martial arts (MMA) event was headlined by a middleweight title fight that saw former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre jump up to middleweight to dethrone ex-division kingpin Michael Bisping.
That wasn’t all. Not by a long shot.
In the UFC 217 co-headliner, TJ Dillashaw recaptured his bantamweight crown by stopping ex-Team Alpha Male (TAM) teammate Cody Garbrandt, in what is sure to be a long and lengthy rivalry between the two 135-pound sluggers.
And let’s not forget the upset of the night, as 115-pound underdog Rose Namajunas turned the strawweight division on its head by smashing the previously undefeated Joanna Jedrzejczyk in the very first round.
Missed the event? Too hungover to remember what happened?
