UFC 154: St-Pierre retains title, Hendricks KO’s Kampmann



The long awaited return of Montreal’s Georges St-Pierre cannot be put to rest as the champion dominated the challenger Carlos Condit to retain his UFC welterweight title.

Although Condit nearly finished the fight in the third with a crushing head kick that toppled the champ, GSP was able to regain his composure and do what he does best by using his wrestling skills to run down Condit and retain the gold.

“I will take a vacation, talk to my coaches, friends and entourage about what’s next”, says St-Pierre following the fight, in response to Rogan’s question about if he wants to fight Silva next.

Anderson Silva was cage side for the fight, but did not enter the octagon.

In co-main event action, Johny Hendricks made a statement with a crushing KO victory over Martin Kampmann in just the opening minute of the first-round.

Canadians on the card who were victorious included Patrick Cote, who won via DQ after Sakara rained down illegal shots to the back of Cote’s head.

Mark Bocek dropped a three-round decision to Rafael dos Anjos in an all out slugfest.
