Full press release below:
Toronto, Ontario – Audiences throughout Quebec will get an up-close view of Georges St-Pierre's return to the Octagon® as Guzzo Cinemas and the Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC®) present UFC® 154: ST-PIERRE VS. CONDIT. Broadcast live from Montreal's Bell Centre on Saturday, November 17 at 10:00 p.m. ET, fans will witness the crowning of the new undisputed UFC welterweight champion, as St-Pierre looks to extend his five-year, nine-fight winning streak against interim titleholder, and "Natural Born Killer" Carlos Condit. After an injury sidelinedSt-Pierre for nearly a year, Condit claimed the interim title by defeating Nick Diaz in February. Now the two will battle it out on St-Pierre's home turf to determine the world's best 170-pound fighter.
Tickets for UFC® 154: ST-PIERRE VS. CONDIT are available at participating theatre box offices, as the event will be presented in five select movie theaters in Quebec.

St- Pierre last defeated Jake Shields at UFC 129 but an ACL injury sidelined the welterweight champion late last year. Condit earned a decision win over Nick Diaz at UFC 143 in February.
UFC® 154: ST-PIERRE vs. CONDIT, which is presented by The United States Marine Corps, also features Johny Hendricks (13-1, fighting out of Dallas, Texas) as he faces Denmark native Martin Kampmann (20-5, fighting out of Las Vegas, Nev.) in a compelling welterweight co-main event with title implications. As the only fighter to defeat interim champion Carlos Condit in the UFC, Kampmann feels a win over Hendricks will put him at the top of the 170-pound division. Fresh off a pair of wins over former welterweight title challengers Jon Fitch and Josh Koscheck, the hard-hitting Hendricks is confident of his standing in the welterweight class and looks to add a fifth consecutive win to his impressive streak on Nov. 17.
