Current UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre looks to be recovering well from his knee injury. He has been undergoing medical benchmarking tests on his knee and is apparently passing with flying colors.
It is now common knowledge that GSP was forced to withdraw from his scheduled title fight against Nick Diaz at UFC 143 after blowing out his ACL during training in the lead up to the fight.
Since then Georges has undergone surgery to repair the injured knee. Recovery can take 6-10 months with an ACL tear of that nature and everyone has been waiting anxiously to find out how St-Pierre has been getting on.
St-Pierre has now begun the physical rehabilitation stage of his recovery and things seem to be going very well. Today GSP said the following on his Twitter page:
“I can gradually start testing my knee! Thanks again for the amazing support, it’s not over yet but we’re getting there!”
He also attached the photo you see within this post to the Tweet.
St-Pierre is widely regarded as one of the best pound-for-pound fighters around and fans around the world cannot wait to see the champion return. With is recovery going smoothly, hopefully fans will get to see the champ take on Carlos Condit sooner rather than later.
