Who will win the Georges St-Pierre vs. Carlos Condit fight?

November 13, 2012|By Houston Mitchell

Tuesday's Google+ Hangout featured a discussion of MMA with Times boxing/MMA writer Lance Pugmire, focusing on this weekend's pay-per-view match between Georges St-Pierre and Carlos Condit for the UFC welterweight title.

The big question, who will win the fight?

According to Pugmire, St-Pierre. You will have to watch the video to see why!

Plus, who would win a grudge match between TJ Simers and Bill Plaschke?

St-Pierre is coming off a 19-month layoff after surgery to repair a torn ACL in his right knee.

As St-Pierre said in a Q&A with Times MMA writer Lance Pugmire last month,

"I tried my best to just keep the focus on my rehab, whatever I was supposed to do that day. To tell you the truth, the UFC took really good care of me. I know not every fighter has this kind of opportunity. They might have had this injury and be finished. But I feel like I had the royal treatment. The way I was treated … yes, going through rehab and dealing with an injury is tough, but I felt like there were worse things in life to deal with. And look at me now. I can't complain about that."

How does St-Pierre know the knee has healed?

"Because I can do it all again, and do it better than before. It's been difficult, this adversity. But it's like what they say, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. I know I followed the time frame and let my body heal. I feel 100 percent comfortable."
