Ahead of UFC 217 press conference with GSP, watch Michael Bisping's best trash-talk


If you’re going to be in Las Vegas next week, you’ve got a chance to see UFC 217’s headliners – and budding rivals – in person.

Prior to UFC 216 ceremonial weigh-ins on this coming Friday, Oct. 5, UFC 217’s six featured fighters will be part of a press conference, which is free and open to fans. That includes UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping (30-7 MMA, 20-7 UFC) and former longtime welterweight titleholder and all-time MMA great Georges St-Pierre (25-2 MMA, 19-2 UFC), who returns from a four-year absence and moves up a weight class for the fight.

The press conference takes place at 6:30 p.m. ET (3:30 p.m. PT local time) at T-Mobile Arena. MMAjunkie will be on scene and covering the event, and we’ll have a live video stream available.

UFC 217, which features three title fights, takes place Nov. 4 at iconic Madison Square Garden in New York City. The main card – one of the best of the year – airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Except some fireworks from Bisping and St-Pierre, who were booked in a fight that caught some fans by surprise. The matchup has been an on-again, off-again mess after it was announced in March, but injuries to both fighters delayed, then scrapped and ultimately forced a rebooking of the fight.

Although GSP is widely revered as a fan favorite – and a favorite among fellow fighters – Bisping has been his usual brash self as he talks up the fight. He’s dismissed St-Pierre as relevant, alleged he has spies in GSP’s camp, and even suggested he may retire after beating him.

At the press conference, you can expect some trash-talk, especially from Bisping (check out the video above to learn why).

Also slated for the UFC 217 press conference? Bantamweight champ Cody Garbrandt (11-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) and challenger T.J. Dillashaw (14-3 MMA, 10-3 UFC), who meet in the co-headliner, and women’s strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk (14-0 MMA, 8-0 UFC) and opponent Rose Namajunas (6-3 MMA, 4-2 UFC), who kick off the night’s championship tripleheader.

The latest UFC 217 card includes:

  • Champ Michael Bisping vs. Georges St-Pierre – for middleweight title
  • Champ Cody Garbrandt vs. T.J. Dillashaw – for bantamweight title
  • Champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Rose Namajunas – for women’s strawweight title
  • Ricardo Ramos vs. Aiemann Zahabi
  • Paulo Borrachinha vs. Johny Hendricks
  • Curtis Blaydes vs. Aleksei Oleinik
  • Gadzhimurad Antigulov vs. Ion Cutelaba
  • Jorge Masvidal vs. Stephen Thompson
  • Corey Anderson vs. Patrick Cummins
  • Randy Brown vs. Mickey Gall
  • Joseph Duffy vs. James Vick
