UFC president Dana White made the trip up north to check in on former welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre earlier this week.
St-Pierre underwent surgery to repair a torn ACL suffered in training after announcing his decision to vacate the title. He was cleared to resume training by his doctor, White said.
“They cleared GSP’s knee,” White told UFC.com. “After surgery like that it still takes about another 30 days before you start to mentally feel right. But he’s in a good spot.”
White and UFC CEO Lorenzo Fertitta visited with GSP in his home country, but nothing was made in regards to setting a date for his return to action.
“His knee just got cleared and he’ll start training again and getting back into shape. He’ll let us know when he’s ready,” White said.
St-Pierre defeated Johny Hendricks for the title in late 2013 before making his decision. He has stayed away from the MMA spotlight since suffering his knee injury.
