UFC 217 bonuses: Georges St-Pierre’s submission, Rose Namajunas’ knockout lead the way

MMA: UFC 217-Bisping vs St-Pierre Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Where do we start?

Not only did Georges St-Pierre make good on his Octagon return last night (Sat., Nov. 4, 2017) at UFC 217 live on pay-per-view (PPV) from inside Madison Square Garden in New York City, by choking UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping unconscious, but T.J. Dillashaw shockingly finished UFC bantamweight king Cody Garbrandt and UFC women’s strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk got absolutely smoked by unassuming challenger Rose Namajunas.

Also, Paulo Costa butchered former UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks and Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson stealthily punched his way past the tough Jorge Masvidal. The preliminary card added a vicious Ovince Saint Preux head kick knockout over New York native Corey Anderson and a memorable James Vick TKO finish over “Irish” Joseph Duffy with one second left in the round.
