The fighters competing on Saturday’s UFC217: Bisping vs. St-Pierre fight card at Madison Square Garden in New York City stepped on the scale on Friday for the ceremonial weigh-in for fans. The fight card features three world title fights. UFC 217 will be the second time the fight promotion has held an event at the famed venue.
Tempers were flaring, but none more so than that of women’s strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk, who again took aim at Rose Namajunas, telling her, “The Boogeywoman is coming for you!” All the while, Namajunas was reciting the Lord’s Prayer.
The ceremonial weigh-in was minus two fighters that made weight earlier in the day at the official weigh-in, as an anti-doping violation came to light and forced the bout off of the card.
