UFC 217: Best night of Georges St-Pierre’s career came with congratulatory tweet from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre returned to mixed martial arts (MMA) last Saturday night (Nov. 4, 2017) to choke out Michael Bisping in the UFC 217 pay-per-view (PPV) main event inside Madison Square Garden (MSG) in New York City.

Relive the madness here.

The win puts St-Pierre in elite company, becoming one of very few combatants to ever capture championship titles in multiple weight classes. In fact, “Rush” called the “Big Apple” bonanza the best night of his career (and rightly so).

“The atmosphere last night at MSG was unreal,” St-Pierre wrote the day after his epic win in the UFC 217 headliner. “Feeling great today. Thanks everyone for making this the best night of my career!!!”

And by “everyone” I’m sure he didn’t realize he was including Justin Trudeau, the 23rd Prime Minister of Canada, who congratulated “Rush” on his victory over Bisping, the Brash Brit who talked a ton of trash leading up to their fight.

I guess that’s better than getting a tweet (like this one) from U.S. President Donald Trump.

Now that UFC 217 is in the books, St-Pierre will have to decide how to move forward. While he’s contractually obligated to defend his 185-pound title against interim champion Robert Whittaker, he can also vacate the strap to move back down to welterweight for a Tyron Woodley title fight.

Or make a gazillion dollars fighting this guy.
