Here’s a recap:

Round 1

St-Pierre looked as good as he ever has opening up the first round, connecting on stiff jabs and a takedown of the champ.

Round 2

Bisping slipped an overhand and popped St-Pierre to stun him momentarily. St-Pierre landed the takedown of Bisping, but the champ was able to hip escape.

Round 3

St-Pierre got the takedown to open the third round yet again. He looked gassed in the second round, and it was an interesting decision to go to the ground, exerting more energy early. From his back, Bisping cut St-Pierre. St-Pierre rocked Bisping late, then took his back and choked him out.

Bisping won five consecutive bouts heading into Saturday night’s main event. The defending middleweight champion won three consecutive fights before beating Luke Rockhold for the title in June 2016 by knockout and Dan Henderson by decision in the legend’s retirement fight in October 2016.

St-Pierre returned to the Octagon after five years off. His last loss came all the way back in 2007, with 13 consecutive wins before his sudden disappearance from the UFC. His last seven fights ended in decision.
