UFC TONIGHT, UFC 217 FIGHT NIGHT PREFIGHT and POSTFIGHT SHOWS Live From New York City

LOS ANGELES, CA – Today, FOX Sports announces its broadcast team for UFC 217: BISPING VS. GSP on FS1 and FOX Deportes this Friday and Saturday. Current UFC welterweight champion Tyron Woodley (@TWooodley), former middleweight champion Chris Weidman (@ChrisWeidmanUFC) and retired contender Kenny Florian (@KennyFlorian) serve as FOX Sports desk analysts with host Karyn Bryant (@KarynBryant) live from New York City.

UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier (@dc_mma) joins analyst Joe Rogan (@JoeRogan) and blow-by-blow announcer Jon Anik (@Jon¬_Anik) to call UFC 217: BISPING VS. GSP on Saturday live from Madison Square Garden. Reporter Megan Olivi (@MeganOlivi) interviews fighters on-site. UFC bantamweight Erik “Goyito” Perez (@Goyito_Perez), Santiago Ponzinibbio (@SPonzinibbioMMA) and Victor Davila (@mastervic10) call the Spanish language telecast on FOX Deportes.

In the UFC 217 main event, middleweight champion Michael Bisping (31-7) faces returning Canadian legend Georges St-Pierre (25-2). After a career-best year in 2016, in which he beat superstars Anderson Silva and Dan Henderson and scored a knockout of Luke Rockhold that earned him the UFC middleweight crown, Bisping attempts to add another superstar, St-Pierre, to his resume. Perhaps the greatest welterweight in UFC history, GSP makes his first Octagon appearance since 2013, and after nine successful defenses of his welterweight title, he’ll begin a new chapter in his storied career at 185 pounds.

UFC 217 features two additional title fights, with undefeated bantamweight champion Cody Garbrandt (11-0) facing former teammate turned bitter rival T.J. Dillashaw (15-3). Plus, undefeated strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk (14-0) faces THE ULTIMATE FIGHTER finalist Rose Namajunas (7-3).

FOX Sports begins its coverage of UFC 217 on Wednesday, Nov. 1 (8:00 PM ET), with UFC TONIGHT live from New York City. Hosts Florian and Cormier preview UFC 217 and interview headliners Bisping and St-Pierre, as well as Garbrandt, Dillashaw and Jedrzejczyk. The UFC 217 WEIGH-IN SHOW takes place on Friday, Nov. 3 (6:00 PM ET) on FS1 with host Karyn Bryant and analysts Woodley, Weidman and Florian previewing the upcoming fights.

Saturday’s programming begins with the UFC 217 PREFIGHT SHOW on FS2 (7:00 PM ET) as Bryant, Florian, Woodley, Weidman and Olivi break down the night’s three title fights.

The two-hour UFC 217 PRELIMS continue on FS1 and FOX Deportes at 8:00 PM ET and feature four action-packed bouts. Lightweight James Vick (11-1) faces Joe Duffy (16-2). Heavyweight Walt Harris (10-5) squares off with Mark Godbeer (12-3), while No. 6-ranked Ovince Saint Preux (21-10) and No. 7 Corey Anderson (10-3) go head-to-head in a light heavyweight bout. Plus, Randy Brown (9-2) and Mickey Gall (4-0) open the PRELIMS with an exciting welterweight bout. The action wraps up immediately following the main event with the UFC 217 POSTFIGHT SHOW on FS1.
