Saturday night, the UFC will bring one of the most stacked cards in UFC history, UFC 217, to Madison Square Garden in New York, New York. Many fans have not been this excited for a UFC event since UFC 205, which also featured three title fights and was headlined by Conor McGregor and Eddie Alvarez in the UFC’s New York debut.

This time in New York, UFC fans will witness the return of one of the UFC’s greatest fighters in history, Georges St-Pierre, as he looks to defeat Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping. The co-main event features a bitter rivalry between ex-teammates Cody Garbrandt vs. TJ Dillashaw, as the former champion Dillashaw looks to regain control of the Bantamweight division.
