The cameras were out in full force at the154 Open Workout session this past Thursday to catch a handful of the fighters who will be competing on November 17th. Dozens of media members packed into Firas Zahabi’s Tristar Gym and caught open workouts as well as interviews from some of the gym’s most renowned fighters.
Most of the focus was on UFC Welterweight Champion, who will have a tough task in front of him in Carlos Condit. Condit holds the UFC Interim Welterweight Championship and that fight will serve as the headliner. St-Pierre answered questions in both French and English; a portion of St-Pierre’s scrum can be seen above.
Also present was middleweight contender Patrick Côté, who will duke it out against fellow slugger Alessio Sakara. Côté was also hitting pads and answering questions, alongside middleweight Francis Carmont who will be facing veteran Tom Lawlor.
Other fighters involved in the session were John Makdessi, Mark Bocek and Ivan Menjivar.
