It wasn't the easiest win of his career, but UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre definitely put on an impressive performance while headlining Saturday's UFC 154 in Montreal.
Fighting in front of his hometown crowd, Canada's king of the Octagon triumphantly returned to mixed martial arts with a hard-fought, unanimous decision victory over interim title holder Carlos Condit.
