UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre appears to have gotten over the final hump in his lengthy journey back to the ring after tearing his ACL in late 2011. The 22-2 French Canadian recently took to Facebook where he revealed he had received clearance to fight again with his anticipated return still slated to come against Carlos Condit at UFC 154.
“(Monday) was the final chapter of my Road to Recovery – I’m now medically cleared to compete in professional mixed martial arts,” an excited St-Pierre exclaimed. “Big thanks to all my fans for the amazing support during those nine long months of rehab – couldn’t have done it without you.”
St-Pierre also gave credit to his training partners, management, and the doctors who helped him get back to 100%.
“I’ve been lucky to work with such professional and kind people and I’ve learned a lot from them. It’s been an incredible experience,” wrote St-Pierre. “Rendez-vous le 17 Novembre, UFC 154, Montreal!!!”
GSP hasn’t fought since a win over Jake Shields in April of last year, his ninth straight instance of success inside the Octagon.
