The trash talk between Georges St-Pierre and Michael Bisping spilled out into the backstage area after the UFC 217 press conference Friday in Toronto.
In a confrontation captured on video by TMZ, Bisping approached GSP after the event and told him not to put his hands on him. During a staredown on stage, St-Pierre slapped away Bisping, who was pointing a finger in St-Pierre’s face.
“If you put your hands on a man, that means you got a f*cking problem,” Bisping said inside the Hockey Hall of Fame. “Keep your f*cking hands to yourself, pal. I will knock you f*cking out right now.”
GSP shot back that Bisping touched him first.
“I’m not afraid of you, I don’t give a damn,” GSP said. “I will break you, man. I will break you. … Touch me again, I’m gonna break you.”
Bisping, 38, seemed to be trying to get under GSP’s skin and he might have succeeded. During the verbal altercation, Bisping faked a jab to St-Pierre’s face.
“You little f*cking nerd,” Bisping said. “Look at you, look at the state of you. You don’t do f*ck all, man. You won’t do a f*cking thing. I’ll break your f*cking jaw.
“Don’t try and act tough, because I doesn’t suit you. You look stupid.”
Bisping will defend his UFC middleweight title against St-Pierre in the main event of UFC 217 on Nov. 4 in New York. St-Pierre, the former longtime welterweight champion, is making his return to the UFC after four years away.
