UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre: ‘I Will Do It. I Will Fight In 2012′

Jon Anik had UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre on the most recent edition of “UFC Ultimate Insider” Tuesday, and the champ gave some strong words.

“I will do it. I will fight in 2012,” St-Pierre said.

GSP is rehabbing from knee surgery that knocked him out of a planned bout with Nick Diaz earlier this year. In his place stepped Carlos Condit, who defeated Diaz and secured the title on an interim basis.

St-Pierre and Condit will unify the titles when the Canadian is healthy and able to return. Nothing has been set or confirmed, but this is the latest – and most hopeful – news from St-Pierre in regards to his progress.

St-Pierre is 22-2 in his career, but has not fought since defeating Jake Shields in early 2011. The win was his fifth consecutive decision triumph in defense of his title.

Condit, meanwhile, is 28-5 with five-straight victories inside the Octagon. His last loss was a split decision defeat against Martin Kampmann in 2009.

On a personal note, GSP-Condit is a fight I am interested in just because I want to see if St-Pierre seeks the finish. Condit likely won’t be as safe as he was against Diaz, so it will be intriguing to see how this one plays out.
