Georges St. Pierre back in the gym

UFC welterweight champ Georges St. Pierre is known as a gym rat, as GSP likes nothing more than fine-tuning himself in the training center. However, St. Pierre was forced to stay away from his second home after tearing his ACL and undergoing surgery. Now the champ is back in action, at least in some regards.

St-Pierre posted on his Twitter account that he has been cleared to do light gymnastics work back in Montreal alongside one of his coaches.

“Great to be back in Montreal and start training again with my gymnastics coach Pat Beauchamp,” St. Pierre posted. In a short video on his official YouTube page “Rush” also explained he is very limited in what he is allowed to do.

In the meantime St. Pierre will have to sit by as the UFC crowns an interim welterweight champion this weekend at UFC 143 with Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit squaring off for the honor. While St. Pierre is hopeful to be back early this summer, it is likely that the winner of Diaz-Condit will make at least one title defense before GSP is cleared to fight again.

    GSP was light years ahead of his competition so even if he lost a step or 2, he’d still be better then most of his challengers. Everybody is quick to write him off but after seeing him exercise in the primetime episode I think GSP will be back and good to go with out a hitch.

    Even at 80%, I think GSP is too much for 99% of the challengers in his weight class. If GSP loses to Condit or Diaz, unless he hides something from the pre-fight doctors, it’ll mean they earned it beyond all doubt.

    To each their own. Aside from the Shields fight and his not finishing Kos, I haven’t got much to complain about. I’d love to see him finish more, but it’s up to the challengers to take risks, not the guy who has the belt.
