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:

A post shared by Mikebisping (@mikebisping) on

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.
