UFC Nick Ring

With so much hoopla surrounding the UFC’s return trip to Canada on Saturday, let’s not forget the Octagon will be returning up north with a star-studded show in exactly two months.

The recent addition of the middleweight tussle between Nick Ring (Pictured) and Constantinos Philippou should make UFC 154‘s roster complete at 12 bouts.

Ironically, one of the two scraps not officially announced is the show’s featured attraction between welterweight king Georges St-Pierre and interim champ Carlos Condit. However, that title unification fight is all but a done deal.

The light heavyweight affair with Fabio Maldonado and Cyrille Diabate is the other contest not confirmed by the UFC for the November 17th event.

Montreal’s Bell Centre hosts the festivities.

Here are the athletes expected to perform in Canada:

Fabio Maldonado vs. Cyrille Diabate*

Rodrigo Damm vs. Antonio Carvalho

Ivan Menjivar vs. Azamat Gashimov

Stephen Thompson vs. Besam Yousef

Patrick Cote vs. Alessio Sakara

Rafael dos Anjos vs. Mark Bocek

Pablo Garza vs. Mark Hominick

Constantinos Philippou vs. Nick Ring

Sam Stout vs. John Makdessi

Francis Carmont vs. Tom Lawlor

Martin Kampmann and Johny Hendricks

Carlos Condit (UFC interim welterweight champion) vs. Georges St-Pierre (UFC welterweight champion)*
