Champs Michael Bisping and Joanna Jedrzejczyk are trolling opponents on UFC 217 fight day


Dann StuppHow do you kill time before one of the year’s biggest UFC events? For two UFC champs, you take last-minute shots at your opponents.

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.

UFC 217, which takes place at Madison Square Garden in New York, has seen plenty of trash-talking and posturing throughout fight week. And it’s continued today.

There was Bisping’s “It” inspired knock at St-Pierre (via Instagram), which originally came from the UFC’s Twitter account:

Jedrzejczyk, meanwhile, said she’s ready to “cut” some “roses,” surely a knock at opponent Rose Namajunas (via Twitter):

The Bisping vs. St-Pierre headliner is essentially a pick’em at the sports books. However, Jedrzejczyk, who looks to tie Ronda Rousey’s UFC women’s record sixth straight title defense is a hefty 6-1 favorite.
