NEW YORK – All six title-fight participants took part in today’s UFC 217 press conference, and MMAjunkie was on the scene.
The fan and media event took place at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York. The main arena at Madison Square Garden also hosts Saturday’s event, which airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
