Dana White: GSP could fight again this summerPosted on January 22, 2012, 09:50 AM by Anton Gurevich
"GSP's rehab could not be going better," said White. "I kid you not, he texts me every day. Tonight during the fight, he was texting me pictures of him kicking, of him doing things. He says, 'I am praying every night when I go to bed that Nick Diaz wins this fight.' I have never seen Georges St. Pierre ... hate somebody. He hates Nick Diaz. I've never seen him hate somebody. I've never seen him so motivated to fight somebody, and to beat somebody as he is Nick Diaz.
He's ahead of schedule now, being the freak of nature that he is, and the hard worker and dedicated athlete that he is, I think he's going to be back sooner than doctors anticipated."
Ariel Helwani sought clarification. "So perhaps the summer time?"
"Yes" said White
UFC President Dana White (quote via the UG) gave more hope to George St. Pierre's fans, claiming that the French-Canadian could find himself inside the Octagon as early as this summer. In one of his recent interviews, St. Pierre declared that he will return in November, but now it looks like the rehabilitation is going better than expected for the reigning UFC Welterweight Champion. UFC 143 encounter between Nick Diaz and Carlos condit will determine the identity of Interim UFC Welterweight Champion, after St. Pierre was forced to pull out of the card due to a torn ACL in his right knee.
