Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is roughly 24 hours 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.
As a result, this is likely to be the second-to-last 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 5 of UFC 217 Embedded, welterweight Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson enjoys Halloween night in Times Square. Former bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw trains to recapture his title, while strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk trains to keep hers. Middleweight challenger Georges St-Pierre meets with legendary coaches Firas Zahabi, Freddie Roach and Renzo Gracie. Middleweight champion Michael Bisping is good-naturedly trash-talked by his son, then has a less humorous interaction with welterweight Jorge Masvidal. Champions and title challengers mingle before the pre-fight press conference, then have heated exchanges and menacing staredowns on stage. UFC 217 Embedded is an all-access, behind-the-scenes video blog leading up to the three title fights at UFC 217 taking place inside Madison Square Garden on Saturday, November 4th on Pay-Per-View.
