UFC 154: Weigh-in Results for Georges St-Pierre vs Carlos Condit Fight Card
Montreal - It’s been quite a while since we’ve seen Georges St-Pierre set foot inside the Octagon. The UFC welterweight champion last fought in April 2011, when he defeated Jake Shields via unanimous decision. St-Pierre’s opponent in Saturday’s UFC 154 main event, Carlos Condit, reaped the rewards of St-Pierre’s absence, picking up the interim welterweight crown while St-Pierre rehabbed from knee surgery.
When the two meet at the Bell Centre in Montreal, it will be to unify those two titles and make everything right with the world. All right, maybe not the world, but at least things will be right within the UFC’s welterweight division. Can’t we just be happy for small victories?
In the evening’s co-main event, Martin Kampmann will face Johny Hendricks in a fight that may determine who the winner of the main event faces next. On the other hand, the winner of the Kampmann versus Hendricks bout may not fight for the title in their next contest. No one seems too sure how things will shake out at this point.
