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)*
