Two welterweight champions will walk into Montreal’s Bell Centre on Saturday for UFC 154. One champion will walk out.
Georges St-Pierre, the current welterweight champion, will square off with Carlos Condit — the man who captured the interim welterweight belt during GSP’s lengthy layoff — in a match that will determine the undisputed champ. The stakes are high, the anticipation is through the roof and the result will go a long way toward shaping the UFC landscape.
St-Pierre’s reign at the top of the welterweight division has been long and illustrious.

Given that the welterweight title unification bout between champ Georges St-Pierre (Pictured) and interim champion Carlos Condit has hoarded most of the UFC 154 spotlight, and understandably so, there is another critical 170-pound shootout showcased in Saturday’s show.
While the three-part “UFC 154 Primetime” series on FX has focused solely on GSP vs. Condit, FUEL TV’s debut...
Either people are too swift to forget, or the UFC Primetime series is once again doing its job, but for whatever reason, there are a lot of folks who think GSP is going to lose this Saturday night. I understand, I too once bought into the pre fight hype shows, I believed based on a television “Primetime” event that a fighter had a chance and would shock the world. Well, after...
