Former UFC welterweight kingpin Georges “Rush” St-Pierre will make his long awaited octagon return at UFC 217 this November in New York where he will attempt to dethrone current UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping.
St-Pierre has not competed since UFC 167 in November of 2013, where he scored a split-decision victory over Johny Hendricks thus retaining his welterweight title.
Shortly after his bout with “Big Rigg”, St-Pierre announced that he would be stepping away from the sport of mixed martial arts and vacating his UFC welterweight championship.
Fast forward almost four years and the Canadian sensation is now back and appears to be hungrier than ever before.
“Rush” is not only training to beat the pulp out of “The Count” on November 4, but he is also practicing for what could be one hell of a post-fight octagon celebration.
Check out his most recent post on Twitter:
“Still not ready to try this one in the octagon as a victory celebration” = Georges St-Pierre (August 19)
Who do you think will walk out of New York with the UFC middleweight championship after Georges St-Pierre and Michael Bisping throw down at Madison Square Garden on November 4? Sound off PENN Nation!
