A former welterweight UFC champion and one of the most dominant athletes in MMA history, Georges St-Pierre has his return scheduled in the organization that launched him into stardom.
Now a middleweight, he will face off against Michael Bisping, the title holder who has been waiting forever to put his belt on the line. UFC 217, set to take place Nov. 4 in Las Vegas, will be the stage for the duel.
A top-tier wrestler and strong karate-based striker, GSP is also a strong BJJ fighter. A black-belt under Bruno Fernandes of Gracie Barra Montreal, GSP has fought in the ADCC, finished Matt Hughes in the UFC, and even taken part in a historic open training session with Royce Gracie as promotion for UFC 167.
