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.
