Headliner and middleweight champ Michael Bisping (30-7 MMA, 20-7 UFC), who fights Georges St-Pierre (25-2 MMA, 19-2 UFC) in tonight’s UFC 217 pay-per-view headliner, and strawweight titleholder Joanna Jedrzejczyk (14-0 MMA, 8-0 UFC), who meets Rose Namajunas (6-3 MMA, 4-2 UFC) in the first of three title fights tonight, got in some fight-day digs at their opponents.
