Jedrzejczyk looks to intimidate, Garbrandt and Dillashaw get heated at UFC 217 face offs
With only 48 hours to go, the fighters competing in the three title bouts at UFC 217 certainly look ready to throw down.
At the end of the UFC 217 pre-fight press conference, the fighters squared off with UFC president Dana White standing between them to keep the peace.
UFC women’s strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk charged at opponent Rose Namajunas while jawing at her non-stop during the face off before kissing her fist and making contact with the former “Ultimate Fighter” finalist before White pushed them away from each other.
Jedrzejczyk is well known for her intimidating stare downs but Namajunas didn’t look deterred by the intense moment ahead of her second shot at UFC gold.
The heated rivalry between Cody Garbrandt and T.J. Dillashaw will also come to a head on Saturday night and there was no shortage of bad words shared between these two fighters.
Garbrandt and Dillashaw could be seen shouting at each other during the face off with White stepping in to ensure no one got punched before the fights on Saturday night.
Perhaps the most subdued face off was the main event as Michael Bisping squared off with Georges St-Pierre, who makes his return to action for the first time in nearly four years.
St-Pierre was all smiles as he faced off with Bisping as they will headline a card that White says will be the third largest gate in the history of Madison Square Garden.
