MONTRÉAL, QUÉBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 15, 2012) - Indigo offers front-row seats to the eagerly anticipated return of the best fighter, pound for pound, in the UFC, Québec's own Georges St-Pierre (GSP). On Saturday, November 17 at 10 p.m., live from the Bell Centre, St-Pierre (22-2-0) will step into the ring after a 19-month hiatus in a bid to reclaim the UFC World Welterweight Championship from the current interim champ, Carlos "Natural Born Killer" Condit (28-5-0) of the U.S..
With St-Pierre sidelined by a knee injury, Condit won the interim belt in February 2012 by defeating Nick Diaz. Now, St-Pierre and Condit will face off in Montréal to determine who is really the best fighter in the 170-lb class. GSP is hoping to add a 10th straight win to his nearly 5-year string of victories, an unequalled record in his weight class.
In a semi-final bout, Martin Kampmann (20-5-0) of Denmark will confront the dangerous and still undefeated Johny Hendricks (13-0-1) from Ada, Oklahoma in what promises to be an explosive battle. The card also features Francis Carmont (19-7-0) from France, now residing in Montréal, against Tom Lawlor (8-4-0) of the U.S., and Mark Hominick (20-11-0) from Thamesford, Ontario versus Pablo Garza of the U.S.
UFC 154 will be available for $49.99 in standard format or $59.99 in HD. For more information, visit canalindigo.com
