Michael Bisping and Jorge Masvidal may not be fighting each other at UFC 217, but that didn’t stop them from trading obscenities on Wednesday.
Bisping and Masvidal engaged in a heated exchange at the fighters’ hotel in New York City. At the end of the video, Masvidal appears to direct a homophobic slur at “The Count.” Based on the video, it is unclear what caused the confrontation.
Bisping will defend his middleweight crown against Georges St. Pierre in the UFC 217 main event at Madison Square Garden on Saturday night. Masvidal, meanwhile, will square off against Stephen Thompson in a featured welterweight affair on the pay-per-view draw.
