UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre has been cleared to resume training MMA full-time.
St-Pierre, who suffered a knee injury and was forced to take several months off, confirmed on Facebook that he has been given medical clearance.
GSP is currently set to face interim UFC welterweight champion Carlos Condit in November at UFC 154 from Montreal.
(Monday) was the final chapter of my Road to Recovery – I’m now medically cleared to compete in professional mixed martial arts! Big thanks to all my fans for the amazing support during those 9 long months of rehab – couldn’t have done it without you.
It’s been over a year since we’ve seen GSP compete. His last match was a decision victory over Jake Shields in early 2011 for his sixth successful title defense.
Condit claimed the interim title with a win over Nick Diaz. He has waited for St-Pierre to heal up and has not defended the belt.
“I’ve been lucky to work with such professional and kind people and I’ve learned a lot from them,” St-Pierre wrote. “It’s been an incredible experience. Rendez-vous le 17 novembre, UFC 154, Montreal!!!”
