UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre has his next opponent; top contender Johny Hendricks (15-1 MMA, 10-1 UFC) finally got his long-awaited title shot after a “Fight of the Night” win over Carlos Condit (28-7 MMA, 5-3 UFC).

The bout co-headlined Saturday’s UFC 158 pay-per-view event at Montreal’s Bell Centre.

With Hendricks’ title hopes hinging on an impressive performance, the hard-hitting wrestler came through with flying colors against the former interim champ. Hendricks mixed in heavy punches with frequent takedowns before surviving Condit’s valiant late rally.
