Live Stream: UFC 217 Press Conference
The last UFC 217 press conference will look to get fans excited for what should be a great event
This Saturday, the UFC returns to Madison Square Garden for UFC 217. Last year, Conor McGregor made history by becoming a two-weight champion. This year, the company is looking to make history once again. Before the physical fighting begins, there will be one more verbal confrontation between all of the competitors in title fights. The final UFC 217 press conference is scheduled for 3pm ET today. Dana White will be there to mediate a potential heated event.
The returning Georges-St-Pierre will be at The Garden, as will his opponent, the UFC Middleweight Champion Michael Bisping. Will the champion pull out all the stops to get in GSP’s head? Also attending will be Rose Namajunas and UFC Strawweight Champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk. After a controversial conference call, will there be a more emotional confrontation between the two fighters?
Finally, UFC Bantamweight Champion Cody Garbrandt and TJ Dillashaw will look to dish out more insults at one another. Will the former Alpha Male teammates be civil, or are we looking at another Conor McGregor/Nate Diaz scenario? That doesn’t just apply to them. Can any of the fighters involved hold it together until Saturday, or will there be a small preview of what’s to come at the press conference?
Tickets are still available for UFC 217. You can buy them through Ticketmaster.com and The Garden box office.
