Georges St-Pierre will undergo knee surgery to repair torn ACL

A swift return to action from self exile seems quite uncertain at the moment for Georges St Pierre post his injury. The ex Ultimate Fight Championship welterweight champion announced it recently that he has faced injury during training and has torn his ACL, which will require further surgery in order to repair it.

This message from the champion was updated in his Facebook page, where he acknowledged that he had faced the injury only in the last week; however he intends to return in full form post the surgery. Post confirmation from his surgeon about this surgery he immediately declared the information saying that surgery will follow in a few days, post which he will be going into rehab.  Talking about his surgery he sounded optimistic focusing that challenges come and go in everybody’s life and he knows very well how he wants to deal with it, through hard work and paid and there are absolutely no shortcuts to it. He assured that he will so be back to his old 100% perfect form in no time at all. He further asked his supporters to stay tuned and thanked them for their continuous support during his tough time.

Since his narrow win over Johny Hendricks in November, St-Pierre hasn’t participated in a single fight. However post his win, the champion announced that he wishes to surrender the belt, to take some time off from fighting.

Next during the UFC 171 Hendricks bagged the title by defeating Robbie Lawler in early March and hence became the undisputed champion in the welterweight segment.

Regardless of the fact that St-Pierre willingly gave away the winning belt, Dana White, the UFC president feel that the champion will be back to action in no time at all.

Jose Aldo is the number one, says dos Santos

Former Ultimate Fighting Championship or the UFC Heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos has weighed in on the controversy regarding who among Jose Aldo and Jon Jones is the best fighter in the world by claiming the Brazilian, unbeaten as a Mixed Martial Artist for the last nine years, is head and shoulders above the rest.

Even though Junior himself considers the Pound for Pound rankings to be nothing but a waste of printing space, his fellow Brazilian sees him as the best fighter in the world at the moment.

Speaking with the fans during an informal chat, dos Santos was asked what his thoughts were on the latest Pound for Pound rankings published by the UFC which sees Jones consolidate his position at the top. To that, Cigano replied that it is a difficult task to pick out the best considering the talent pool at the UFC right now, but if he did have to choose one, then it would be Jose Aldo.

The Heavyweight also claimed that his comments shouldn’t be interpreted as acclaim for a team mate after he joined the Nova Uniao team of Aldo, adding that he would have said the same thing before as well.

He said that it was highly impressive what Aldo has accomplished in his division. He mentioned that he knows people are talking about the achievements of Jones, who is a great fighter in his own right, but Jose Aldo has been doing it for a longer period and he has had a longer reign as the champion and that just gives him the edge.

Aldo is currently the UFC Featherweight champion where as Jones, a former All American, is the reigning UFC Light Heavyweight champion and will put his belt on the line against Glover Teixeira at UFC 172 next month.
