UFC 217 live stream: How to watch Bisping vs. GSP online

Georges St-Pierre is making his return to mixed martial arts, and he’s doing it in the biggest way he can: A UFC Middleweight Championship bout against Michael Bisping on a card that features three title bouts in total. The promotion’s Bantamweight and Women’s Strawweight Championships will also be on the line.

Saturday’s card is a pay-per-view event beginning at 10 p.m. ET, though there will be preliminary fights on UFC Fight Pass at 6:30 p.m. and FS1 at 8 p.m. Live streaming of the card can be found at UFC.TV, the UFC YouTube channel, and more, with links at the bottom of this article.

Cody Garbrandt will be defending his bantamweight title against the very tough T.J. Dillashaw, and the dominant Joanna Jędrzejczyk will defend her belt against Rose Namajunas.

St-Pierre hasn’t fought since he won a split decision of Johny Hendricks in November 2013, successfully defending his welterweight title for the ninth consecutive time. He hasn’t tasted defeat since a 2007 TKO at the hands of Matt Serra. St-Pierre retired on top, but he’s hoping to best Bisping, who was considered an under-performing fighter at the time St-Pierre was fighting, to make his return.

Bisping has won his last five fights, winning the UFC Middleweight Championship against Luke Rockhold in June 2016 and successfully defending the belt against Dan Henderson in October 2016. He’s been inactive for over a year now, but St-Pierre has been for a lot longer.

Jędrzejczyk seems unstoppable through 14 career bouts. She has never tasted defeat, and has defended her title five times, including a unanimous decision over Jessica Andrade in May. She’s won her last four fights by unanimous decision.

Rose Namajunas is coming off a submission win over Michelle Waterson and is 6-3 as a professional. She fell to Karolina Kowalkiewicz, a woman that Jędrzejczyk has already beaten. Needless to say, Jędrzejczyk is a heavy favorite.

Garbrandt is undefeated at 11-0, and is coming off a huge victory over Dominick Cruz for the UFC Bantamweight Championship. He hasn’t defended his title yet, so he’ll try and do so against the tough Dillashaw, who himself lost the title to Cruz in the first place.

Since that defeat, Dillashaw has beaten Raphael Assuncao and John Lineker, back in December 2016. This fight has been a long time coming.

In addition to those title fights, former champion Johny Hendricks will be taking on Paulo Borrachinha in the middleweight division to open the main card, and welterweights Stephen Thompson and Jorge Masvidal will face off right after that.
