Even a fake Conor McGregor can draw more fans than that.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just days away from its next pay-per-view (PPV) offering, UFC 217: “Bisping vs. St-Pierre,” which takes place inside historic Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sat., Nov. 4, 2017.
That means the latest episode of “Embedded,” focusing on the middleweight title fight between reigning division champion Michael Bisping and former welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre. In the co-main event, Cody Garbrandt will defend his bantamweight belt against former training partner T.J. Dillashaw, while Joanna Jedrzejczyk puts her women’s strawweight strap on the line against Rose Namajunas.
From the official YouTube description:
On Episode 3 of UFC 217 Embedded, UFC champions visit New York City landmarks as strawweight titleholder Joanna Jedrzejczyk ventures to St. Patrick’s Cathedral and bantamweight king Cody Garbrandt heads to Renzo Gracie Academy. Bantamweight title challenger TJ Dillashaw continues his training camp in California and gets polished up for the trip to recapture the belt he once held. Middleweight champion Michael Bisping gets coaching advice from autograph seekers, and opponent Georges St-Pierre trains both above water and below. Welterweight Jorge Masvidal, in town to take on Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson, first takes in a Knicks game at MSG.
