An unofficial welterweight tournament could be coming to Montreal later this year.

UFC president Dana White said following Friday's UFC on FX 3 post-fight press conference that the organization was hoping to book Georges St-Pierre vs. Carlos Condit for the UFC welterweight title at UFC 154, with Martin Kampmann vs. Johny Hendricks serving as the co-main event to determine the division's No. 1 contender. The winners would then face off sometime in 2013.

UFC 154 is scheduled for Nov. 17 at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

White added that the 170-pound fights have yet to be signed but those were the two main bouts the promotion was hoping to bring north of the border.

St-Pierre hasn't fought since April 2011 due to a torn ACL, however, according to the UFC president, St-Pierre's rehab following knee surgery is on target.

UFC 154 marks the organization's first event in Montreal since UFC 124: St-Pierre vs. Koscheck 2 in Dec. 2010.
