TORONTO -- UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping did his best to try and get under the skin of Georges St-Pierre as the two hyped their UFC 217 main event.
At a news conference in the Hockey Hall of Fame, the brash Bisping made fun of GSP's French accent and said the former welterweight title-holder from Montreal was a boring fighter.
St-Pierre, meanwhile, promised the fight would not go the distance and that he would stop Bisping.
The two meet Nov. 4 at Madison Square Garden. It's the first fight for the 36-year-old St-Pierre since he stepped away from the sport in November 2013.
It marks the second 185-pound title defence for the 38-year-old Bisping, an English fighter now based in California.
