Tags:UFC

Canadian Georges St. Pierre unified the welterweight title in his return to the octagon, unanimously outpointing Carlos Condit in a bloody fight Saturday at UFC 154 in Montreal. The judges scored it almost a shutout for St. Pierre at 49-46, 50-45, 50-45. The 31-year-old St. Pierre consolidated his lead with takedowns as the fight wore on, showing his wrestling skills and ability to resist Condit’s submission attempts on the ground. The two battered fighters shook hands and embraced when the fight ended. St. Pierre (23-2) fought for the first time since April 2011 following reconstructive knee surgery after a training injury. Condit won the interim title during the Canadian’s absence, beating Nick Diaz in February. – AP
