Welcome to our coverage of UFC 154 live from Montreal.
I'm ESPN UFC Podcast producer Tom Kingham. Ben Blackmore is sitting next to me here at the New City Gas bar in downtown Montreal. We're about 15 minutes away from Canadian welterweight Rory MacDonald's fan Q+A at 7pm GMT, before the weigh-ins at about 9pm GMT.

As you can see from the empty seats, some of the media have yet to arrive......
We've been here since Wednesday and have spoken GSP, Condit, Hendricks and Kampmann to name a few.
Rory is due on stage any minute now....
Rory says he's not preparing for BJ Penn in a different way to anybody else. He's relying on his trainers to put together his gameplan.
RMacD: Says his cut sustained in training for BJ Penn required 38 stitches.....ouch
RMaCD: Me and GSP are not going to fight, we're good friends. I'm not in it for the money, I don't want to sacrifice a friendship and leave Tristar gym. I wouldn't disrespect Georges or the gym. I plan on beating BJ and taking it one fight at a time. I want to rematch Carlos Condit whether he wins or loses on Saturday.
Rory has got this interview lark sorted already. Just shooting down a fan for asking a question he's already answered!
RMacD says he could go to middleweight if GSP stays champion for a few more years
We've just had 100% confirmation from the UFC that Anderson Silva is on a plane right now on his way to Montreal. We've heard he may not step into the cage if GSP wins, but stare him down from outside.
RMcD: My hardest fight was Carlos Condit. He beat the sh** out of me
Rory asked who parties harder and who gets more ladies out of him and GSP. His answer: GSP parties harder, I get more ladies!

We could be seeing a Carlos Condit v Rory MacDonald TUF series as Rory has just answered in no uncertain terms that the only person he'd want to do a series with is Carlos.
Sorry for the radio silence, Ben has just spoken to Rory about BJ Penn, Carlos Condit, Dan Hardy and Erick Silva.
Welcome to the UFC 154 weigh-ins.
Both Siler and Elkins have weight in bang on at 145lbs.
