At the conclusion of today’s UFC 152 Pre-Fight Press Conference, the UFC announced that there will be a press conference next Thursday in Montreal for UFC 154.

At that press conference, the UFC will make the main event official which will be a welterweight title unification bout as Georges St-Pierre will meet Carlos Condit.

St-Pierre has not been in the octagon since his UFC 129 victory over Jake Shields and recently began training after having surgery on a torn ACL.

When St-Pierre suffered the knee injury, the UFC decided to have an interim title fight and Carlos Condit defeated Nick Diaz, which was a controversial decision with members of the MMA media and the fans.

After winning the interim title, Condit decided that he would wait for St-Pierre to get healthy instead of taking a fight.

UFC 154 will take place from the Bell Centre in Montreal on November 17 and the current fight card is below:
