Experience the most memorable moments of UFC 217 in some fantastic new footage released by the UFC as part of their ‘The Thrill & The Agony’-series.
Oh what a time to be alive people!
UFC 217’s stellar line-up last weekend managed to deliver on virtually every possible level and then some. For the purists who tuned in from the get-go, the earlier bouts managed to put forth a myriad of memorable knockouts, controversial moments and enthralling encounters.
Georges St-Pierre’s comeback victory over Michael Bisping served only to solidify his status as one of the all-time greats and while TJ Dillashaw’s win over heated rival Cody Garbrandt was a thrilling and definitive one, the world – as a whole – are only dying to see them face off against each other once again.
Rose Namajunas pulled off an upset for the ages by knocking out muay-thai sensation Joanna Jedrzejczyk in the first round of their strawweight encounter to win the belt and in the eagerly-anticipated showdown between Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson and Jorge Masvidal, the world was reminded of exactly why the two-time title challenger Thompson is a truly masterful striker.
The card as a whole was as close to flawless as one could reasonably hope for and with the latest edition of their ‘The Thrill & The Agony’-series, the UFC managed to compile some of the most memorable moments from the night as a whole and as far as installments to the series go, it certainly ranks among the most unmissable to date.
