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.

Check out all the highlights above.
