Georges St-Pierre is medically cleared to fight, will battle Condit at UFC 154Posted on August 28, 2012, 06:08 PM by Mike Searson
Georges St-Pierre will return to the Octagon on November 17 in UFC 154, in Quebec, Canada. The WelterWeight champion will face UFC Interim Champion Carlos Condit. The Welterweight Champion has been cleared by doctors to start fighting again.
St-Pierre wrote on his Facebook page today: "Yesterday was the final chapter of my road to recovery, I’m now medically cleared to compete in professional mixed martial arts."
With his ACL surgery behind him and receiving his medical clearance, St-Pierre can return to reinforce his claim to the Welterweight title.
Condit won the interim belt in February after defeating Nick Diaz at UFC 143. Since that time he has been waiting patiently for GSP's recovery rather than taking another fight and risking his opportunity to face St-Pierre.
St-Pierre's most recent victory was over Jake Shields at UFC 129 in April 2011. Prior to that he won nine straight fights including six consecutive title defenses.
