Georges St-Pierre will return to the octagon, where he will face interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit at UFC 154 on Saturday in Montreal.
GSP has been out of action for 11 months after undergoing surgery to reconstruct a ruptured ACL.

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...
