    Georges St-Pierre has returned from his lengthy retirement to remind us all how incredible his skill set is. He has now gone above and beyond with a dramatic third-round submission of the 185 pound champion, Michael Bisping in the main event bout of UFC 217.

    St-Pierre retired from the league four years ago amid personal issues, disagreeing with the UFC's drug testing policies, and "mental fatigue". I have always been a big fan of his, but coming out of a four year retirement to submit a current UFC fighter, let alone one the caliber of Michael Bisping, is just insane. It solidifies to me that he is truly built for this sport.

    "I don't have a word in my mouth right now," St-Pierre said. "It's my dream come true."

    Makes me wonder if there will be a rematch within the next year or so. Both have 20 UFC wins now. Would make perfect sense for them to fight one more time. And then GSP retires for good, I would imagine going 2-0 against.

    I was thinking that as well. But it's hard for me to believe GSP came out of a 4 year retirement to fight only twice. I'm really hoping we see atleast 4 more fights out of him before he's completely done.

    On the other hand, I'd be completely satisfied if he was to call it quits right now.
