Georges St-Pierre once again becomes the UFC Welterweight Champion, when he dominates Matt Serra in his hometown of Montreal.

Matt Serra & Georges St-Pierre first competed at UFC 69. GSP was the reigning Welterweight Champion, & Matt Serra was an 11-1 underdog.

Serra shocked the world at UFC 69, when he knocked out GSP to become the Welterweight Champion. Perhaps the biggest upset in UFC history.

Many believed that St-Pierre would hold the Welterweight title for a long time. Matt Serra stopped that conversation immediately.

GSP climbed the ranks & earned a rematch against Serra one year later He would challenge for the title in the UFC's first trip to Montreal.

In front of his hometown, GSP finished Serra with multiple knees to the body. A finishing sequence we rarely see in this sport.

Once GSP won the title, he never lost again.
