On Thurday, Sept. 27, the UFC will hold a press conference to officially announce its upcoming UFC 154 event which takes place from the Bell Center on Nov. 17 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Featured at the press conference will be the event’s headlining combatants, UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre and interim champion Carlos Condit. The pair will battle in a title unification bout on the pay-per-view.

Thus far, 11 bouts have been revealed for the fall event. In addition to the main event, the co-main event features a match-up of welterweight contenders Martin Kampmann and Johny Hendricks. The winner of that bout is poised for the first crack at the St-Pierre-Condit victor.

The event marks the promotion’s return to St-Pierre’s hometown. The promotion was expected to visit the city in early April, but due to lack of star power, that event was scratched.

Tickets to the event will go on sale this week through Ticketmaster.

The press conference will begin at 12 p.m. ET. A full stream of the action will appear below.
