UFC 154 is in the books from Montreal, Canada and GSP has successfully defeated Carlos Condit to unify the UFC Welterweight titles. With his tenth win in a row, St-Pierre showed flashes of the brilliance that brought him to prominence. His wrestling, as expected, was simply too tough to overcome. He may be derided for not finishing Condit, who was a bloody mess from the relentless ground-and-pound of GSP. St-Pierre did fall into some danger in the third round after a vicious headkick from the NBK, who followed with some ground shots of his own. But GSP recovered nicely, and used his nonstop takedowns to control the fight in all facets. St-Pierre also utilized his effective trademark left jab to pepper Condit while staying outside of his opponent's dangerous striking. While Anderson Silva was cageside, he didn't appear in the Octagon as most hoped, and no news has been discussed as far as him fighting GSP as of yet.

In other action, Welterweight contender Johny Hendricks put on a show when he knocked out a man who is notoriously tough to finish in Martin Kampmann. He missed with a right but followed with his power left to catch Kampmann right on the button. An unecessary hard ground punch sealedd the deal for Hendricks, who has stated he will wait for his title shot with the impressive win.

The rest of the main card was dominated by decisions, as Francis Carmont took a controversial decision from “Filthy” Tom Lawlor, who appeared to attempt more finishes than the Frenchman Carmont. Rafael dos Anjos took home the win over Mark Bocek in a tough match, and Pablo Garza used top control to batter Mark Hominick for a decision win.

    Totally agree with you man. Hendricks is a younger version of hendo. Can't wait to see him fight again. Hopefully against GSP ;)

    Honestly I agree. I will admit I was wrong about Hendricks, I thought Kampman was going to take him to war. I have been skeptical of Hendricks since his debut but honestly all I can say at this point is he deserves it. Knocking out Fitch and Kampman? One of them you can say lucky shot, or caught him off guard but knocking both out in the first round? Are you kidding me? With his wrestling background and his incredible power I want to see Hendricks vs GSP right away.

    yea, the only way GSP could beat that, is to be "safe" , simply put, GSP will be hit at least 1 time in the fight clean, like condit did...but hendrix, would put him to sleep. Safe pierre is the only way to win, wonder how good Johnny's TDD is...enough to keep it standing ? if so, nitey night GSP.

    It was said last night: GSP's wrestling is so good it is easy to forget he is very well rounded. That doesn't make his chin any better but he'd take Hendro (that's right you heard it first here: Hendro)

    GSP would jab Johnnys chin so bad like he did Koschecks, Johnny wouldnt be able to land his lead power hooks cos he be uncoordinated everytime his chin is jabbed

    A welterweight Shane Carwin. Unbeatable until somebody figures him out.



    Needs to get by Diaz before he gets a title shot.

    I was staying at a friends with a few of us watching it (roughly 4.30am local time) and when Hendricks layed him out flat happened we all jumped out our seats shouting.

    Johnny Hendricks is a BEAST, he deserves to get that title shot more than anyone else.



    Seriously GSP's absence from the division led to a rise of amazing world class fighters such as Johnny Hendricks and Carlos Condit.



    GSP had a great performance over the legit #2 WW in the world but there's a new #2 and Georges isn't out of the woods yet

    After two back to back quick knockouts of a grappler and a striker, there's no way you can't give Hendricks a title shot. I can't lie though, I would love to see Hendricks vs. MacDonald if he can get past Penn.

    This guy poses a serious threat to GSP. I'm sure the fans would rather see Hendricks vs Gsp and Anderson vs Bones. I know I would

    Hendricks is legit, but against ANY pure MMA boxer he is flawed. He should fight BJ Penn/Nick Diaz at welterweight to know that if you're gonna jump into distance with a lead hook, your gonna get KTFO with a jab-cross cos your chin is so exposed.
