Fight of the Night went to the main event fighters, Georges St-Pierre and Carlos Condit. The two went the distance in a bloody battle to unify the welterweight championship. St-Pierre controlled Condit with his superior grappling to garner a unanimous decision. Condit had his moment in the third round, when he landed a high kick that dropped St-Pierre, but was unable to finish the champion.
