UFC Announces Montreal For UFC 154; GSP Hopes To Be Part Of Event

Sitting on the sidelines and watching isn’t the way Georges St-Pierre became one of the best MMA fighters in all of the world.

St-Pierre, the UFC welterweight champion, is currently rehabbing from knee surgery. GSP was scheduled to face Nick Diaz earlier this year before more problems with his knee ended the match and forced the UFC to schedule an interim title match between Diaz and Carlos Condit.

Condit is currently waiting for St-Pierre to return, unifying the title. As far as GSP is concerned, he would like nothing more than to do that at UFC 154 in Montreal. The UFC announced during a press conference – in which St-Pierre was part of – that they will return to Canada on November 17.

Hopefully I’ll have a chance to fight in front of my Canadian fans in November. I cross my fingers, and I hope that will happen. I wish and I pray that I have a chance to perform in 2012, no matter where it will be. I want to come back and fight in 2012.

St-Pierre has not fought since defeating Jake Shields in 2011. UFC president Dana White added they will book GSP as soon as he is healed up, but keeping him for a card in Canada makes perfect sense for all involved.
