GSP has been sidelined for a while now and the whole MMA world is waiting to hear from his Dr’s and to get the assurance that he is able to fight again. Well lucky us, GSP is back in the gym full time and will soon unify his title against Carlos Condit. The long awaited welterweight battle has been rumored to go down at UFC 154 in St. Pierre’s home country, in Montreral.
The bout has no confirmation or no word from UFC officials if it will happen then but we can all hope, right?
“I’m back in Montreal and full-time training! Already tried a few kicks – right knee is super strong…,” St-Pierre wrote on his Facebook page on Wednesday.
GSP was put on ice late last year when he tore his ACL and had to undergo reconstructive surgery.
With such a stacked welterweight division, Condit told the UFC that he was willing to wait for GSP and attempt to gain what was his, the unified welterweight belt. Condit beat Nick Diaz at UFC 143 in February and won the interim welterweight title. Condit has won his last five altercations in the octagon and is looking to prove that he deserves to be champion.
There are no official bouts set for the Montreal card but I am positive that Dana White would love to add the GSP Condit fight for the Canadian fans. With all of the injuries lately, White needs a main event and a whole card for that matter with a ton of fire power.
Hopefully both fighters will stay healthy and the clash will go down as planned.featured, mma, MMA NEWS, ufc, ufc news
