GSP back to training full-time
Georges St-Pierre has been somewhat of a forgotten man in the MMA world since undergoing reconstructive surgery on his right knee last fall. St-Pierre tore the ACL in his knee during a wrestling session last year and has been rehabbing since undergoing surgery. The rehab has been limited to working on regaining strength in his knee, and doing cardio work. But he announced on Wednesday that he is back in business:
I’m back in Montreal and full-time training! Already tried a few kicks – right knee is super strong…

“I go very light,” he told The Canadian Press. “Maybe in a few weeks, I will pick it up and I will be 100 per cent. But right now I have to go gradually because – my movement pattern – I haven’t done this in a long time.”
GSP’s last fight was a win over Jake Shields at UFC 129 in Toronto in April 2011. There has been speculation that he will face Carlos Conduit at UFC 154 in November, though nothing has been confirmed. Should he win that fight, he could end up facing the winner of Johny Hendricks-Martin Kampmann.
