UFC Champ Georges St-Pierre Hopeful for a Comeback in November
UFC Welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre's right knee healing well, may start training in July
UFC Welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre tells his fans that he is hopeful to return in the octagon by November. He was interviewed via sattelite last Wednesday, in UFC’s press conference in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
“My rehab is going really well. My doctor says it is the fastest rehab they have seen for an ACL surgery. Even though I’m feeling almost 100 percent right now, I’m halfway through my rehab and I can’t push too much because my graph is still not fused properly. Even though my muscle feels good, I have to wait the minimum amount of time that I’m allowed to start training again. So I’ll be training full out around July.”
“So, Hopefully I’ll have a chance to fight in front of my Canadian fans in November, but Dana (White) is the boss and he is the one that decides everything. But hopefully, I cross my fingers, and I hope that will happen.”
St-Pierre has undergone a surgery on his right knee for his ACL injury that he sustained last year while wrestlng and called it a “compensation injury” stemming from a previous issue to his left leg. He is currently undergoing rehab to restore the strength of his knee.
His last fought against former Strikeforce champ Jake Shields in April 2011 and won via unanimous decision. He was scheduled to face Nick Diaz, then Carlos Condit last year at UFC 143 but backed due to his knee injury.View Article Source »
