“UFC 154: St-Pierre vs. Condit” took place Saturday inside Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Welterweight king Georges St-Pierre ended his 19-month hiatus in style by unifying the 170-pound crown against interim champ Carlos Condit in the show’s featured attraction. Johny Hendricks likely punched his welterweight top contender ticket by punching Martin Kampmann in the face in the co-main event.

Condit felt he was pretty close to finishing GSP. Maybe if he would have been more precise with his onslaught. White said he won’t talk Anderson Silva vs. GSP for a few weeks. He claimed Silva told him, “I’m ready.” GSP revealed he had a flashback from his first Matt Serra fight when Condit knocked him down in the 3rdRound. St-Pierre said his head may look deformed like a “football” right now, but he had a lot of fun in his tango with Condit. White dubbed Hendricks as the welterweight top contender.
