Georges St-Pierre UFC 129It’s been a long time coming but Georges St-Pierre‘s return to the Octagon is now official.

UFC officials announced on Sunday that St-Pierre’s return will indeed take place as expected at UFC 154 in Montreal on Nov 17 against UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit.

The bout has been talked about and discussed for months, but only now has the UFC made the fight official with the announcement of ticket sales and a press conference for the event.

Tickets for UFC 154: St-Pierre vs. Condit will go on sale on Sept 29 for the event that will be held on Nov 17 at the Bell Centre in Montreal. UFC Fight Club member will have the ability to purchase tickets starting on Thursday, Sept 27, and UFC newsletter subscribers will have a special pre-sale event starting on Friday, Sept 28.

In addition to ticket sale information, UFC officials also confirmed a Sept 27 press conference that will be open to the public at the Montreal Science Centre that will be attended by UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, interim champion Carlos Condit and director of UFC Canadian operations Tom Wright.

The press conference will kick off just about 6 weeks before St-Pierre’s return to the Octagon. The UFC’s reigning and defending welterweight champion has not fought since April 2011 when he defeated Jake Shields at UFC 129 in Toronto.

Later that year, St-Pierre suffered a serious knee injury, blowing out his ACL, and required surgery that sidelined the champion for the better part of the last year. Now medically cleared to return to action, St-Pierre will look to unify the welterweight titles when he battles interim champion Carlos Condit at UFC 154.
