Champion vs. champion: The return of one of the UFC's biggest pay-per-view draws. Two of the best welterweights in the world will clash tonight to see who emerges as the true champion.
The buildup for this fight is massive and exciting. Both fighters are hungry to prove that they are indeed the best welterweight in the world.
There are 100 different reasons why you should watch this fight, but I'll only highlight three big ones.
St-Pierre hasn't been seen in the Octagon for over a year now—a blown ACL has seen to that.
But now the champion is primed and ready to make his return in front of his hometown fans in Montreal. Fans have been waiting ages for his return and so has the UFC.
Fans are excited to see how St-Pierre fights after such a long layoff, and the UFC is excited for the massive boost that their PPV ratings will get.
Carlos Condit should not be underestimated in this fight. The guy is a cold-blooded killer.
He owns many weapons that could put a damper on St-Pierre's homecoming. His striking is dangerous and unpredictable. His submissions are lethal and quick.
Condit has a very good chance of winning this fight. After all, in MMA, anything can happen. .
Many have criticized the champion in the past for his inability to finish fights. People have called him boring and a "safe fighter."
GSP has rediscovered his passion and it has lit a fire within him. He is consumed by the need to prove his critics wrong on Saturday night and there is only one way to do that.
He needs to finish Carlos Condit, and believe me, he will be trying. I believe that on Saturday night we will be seeing the most motivated and driven GSP we have ever seen in the Octagon.
