Georges St-Pierre set to return to UFC November 17th at the Bell Centre

UFC 154 Tickets
For the first time in months, a Canadian UFC event is getting more publicity because of who’s on the card, rather than who isn’t. Following the debacle in Calgary and the drama surrounding Jon Jones’ last-minute move from Las Vegas to the UFC 152 card in Toronto, fans with UFC 154 tickets finally have an event worth shelling money out for from the get-go.
UFC superstar Georges St-Pierre returns to the ring at the Bell Centre on November 17th to defend his welterweight championship belt against interim champion Carlos Condit. St-Pierre has missed an entire year due to a knee injury and subsequent time spent in rehab. In contrast with the war of words that surrounded Jon Jones’ move to UFC 152 after UFC 151 was cancelled, there’s been little trash talk this time around as both fighters have opted for – at least publicly – words of respect. It’s almost a little boring, but Montreal fans will probably take a bona fide superstar on their ticket over juicy press.
The big fight is just a month away – get your tickets for the return of GSP and UFC 154 today with ShowTimeTickets.com, Canada’s leading ticket broker since 1985. We Are Never Sold Out!

For one of the hottest events in Canada this year, UFC 149 Calgary sure knows how to make headlines even before the first ticket is officially sold.
