On Saturday, Nov. 4, the UFC brings a title tripleheader to Madison Square Garden in New York City for UFC 217: Bisping vs. St-Pierre.

In the night’s main event, UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping will welcome former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre back to the Octagon. England’s Bisping captured gold at UFC 199 and has since defended the belt against Dan Henderson. The Canadian St-Pierre has not fought since a successful title defense at UFC 167 in late 2013. He later relinquished the belt and stepped away from the sport, but has not tasted defeat in over 10 years.

The bantamweight belt is on the line in the co-main event as former teammates Cody Garbrandt and T.J. Dillashaw lock horns. Garbrandt captured the belt with a dominant performance against Dominick Cruz last December. A former champion himself, Dillashaw will be looking to recapture the title.

Finally, women’s strawweight champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk defends her title against surging contender Rose Namajunas.

The 12-fight event kicks off Saturday at 6:30 p.m. ET with three fights streaming on UFC Fight Pass. Four additional preliminary card bouts follow at 8 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1, with the five-fight main card airing live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.

The fighters will hit the scales at 6 p.m. ET on Friday. A live video feed appears above (courtesy of the UFC), while the results appear below.
