Georges St-Pierre Targeting November Return To Action

Georges St-Pierre, who is sidelined with a torn ACL, is looking at a return to the Octagon later this year. GSP is targeting a November return, according to the fighter during an interview on HDNet’s Inside MMA recently.

“Hard training will be in July, and I am looking to fight again, for the timing to be back, in November,” St-Pierre said. “Late October, early November would be good.”

In preparing for a bout with Carlos Condit in late 2011, “Rush” injured his left knee. After pulling out of the fight, St-Pierre worked too hard to keep his left knee healthy and tore his right ACL overcompensating for the left one.

With GSP sidelined for the extended future, the UFC decided to pit Condit and Nick Diaz in a match to crown an interim UFC welterweight champion. Those two meet in February, and could even have a title defense before St-Pierre is ready for action.
