MONTREAL - Georges St-Pierre may be fighting at home this weekend but he's not sleeping in his own bed.

The UFC welterweight champion has moved into a hotel, saying he wants to have the same feeling as when he fights out of town.

St-Pierre faces off against interim title-holder Carlos (Natural Born Killer) Condit on Saturday night at UFC 154 at the Bell Centre.

Both fighters attended a public workout Thursday, although St-Pierre did little other than sign autographs and give fans some training gear.

He says his training is done for the fight so it makes no sense having a session just for show.
