People are now eagerly setting their eyes on Georges St-Pierre, as he fights for welterweight championship against Carlos Condit at UFC 154. The event is said to happen later this year at Montreal. Even though this is still on the process of negotiations, GSP is determined that there is going to be fight. He is now back in Montreal to do complete training. “Already tried a few tricks—right knee is super strong,” as appeared in his Facebook status last June 27, Wednesday.
Just late last 2011, GSP went for a surgery of his anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), which is considered a major human knee ligament. This was injured during his training and he went for an extensive process of rehabilitation to come back and fight in UFC. His announcement of comeback in November has thrilled many fans but the most significant would be Dana White, the UFC president. White has declared after GSP’s injury that they have fallen short of the main events lately. This has affected the pay-per-views. She also confirmed that November is GSP’s target for returning to UFC fights. GSP’s status post on Facebook really helped encourage the odds.
The November match of GSP versus Condit will enhance the presence of UFC toward the year’s end. This will also serve as the decision maker for several welterweight division contenders. Some of the contenders were Martin Kampmann, Johny Hendricks, and Jake Ellenberger. Even if GSP has already confirmed the next fight with Condit, Kampmann and Ellenberger still played nicely on the TUF Finale that made it to the headlines. Kampmann is now the leading contender next to Condit as he defeated Ellenberger.
As GSP’s return and match with Condit happens, MMA fighters’ Hendricks and Kampmann will settle everything under the supporting match. The winner will be the next contender for welterweight championship. This will probably straighten the odds for UFC and its fighters but be prepared for more actions once everything changes.
