UFC President Dana White Confirms That GSP Is “Far From Being Ready” To Fight


“Georges has been rehabilitating and he’s been doing great. He is on track, but he is still far from being ready. These surgeries these days aren’t what they used to be. He went to the absolute best doctor there is. He’s getting the best physical therapy that you can get and he’s a hard worker,” said White. “Some of these knee surgeries now are just as good – I mean, Jerry Rice, 10 years ago, came back from a knee surgery and was still awesome. It depends on the individual, but these knee surgeries are way different than they used to be.”

UFC president Dana White took to the post-UFC 143 media rush last weekend to give an update on his welterweight champion, Georges St.-Pierre.

GSP has been inactive since early 2011 due to multiple injuries that have forced him to cancel two consecutive title defenses. Most recently he underwent the knife to fix a damaged knee and is expected to return sometime in November.

He likely faces Carlos Condit in his welcome home match.
