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.
