After some down-to-the-wire weigh-in drama earlier today, Tony Ferguson and Kevin Lee will face off for the interim lightweight title in the main event of tomorrow’s (Sat., October 7, 2017) UFC 216 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
But later this year (Sat., November 4, 2017) the promotion will put on a more anticipated event when middleweight champion Michael Bisping finally returns to the Octagon against longtime former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre in the main event of UFC 217 from Madison Square Garden in New York City, New York The last of three title fights
The last of three title fights, the bout presents a rare and even controversial match in that St-Pierre has never fought at 185 pounds and has been out of action for almost four years after vacating his long-held title following his close decision win over Johny Hendricks at 2013’s UFC 167.
After a previous press conference in March that was premature in hindsight, the two oddly-paired rivals met up for another presser today from Las Vegas during UFC 216 weekend. When they squared off at the traditional staredown, Bisping got a bit touchy-feely, prompting St-Pierre to give him a shove right back. Check it out right here:
