Georges St-Pierre Still Targeting Fall Return

While the MMA world is abuzz talking about UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre’s return from an ACL injury that knocked him out of this weekend’s UFC 143 main event, the champ says his progress is ahead of schedule, but that he’s still paying close attention to his rehabilitation so he’s not having to start over at square one.

The doctor’s are indicating the July is a likely target for GSP to return to full-on training, but those who are hoping for a late summer showdown between the champ and the winner of Saturday’s fight between Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit may want to temper their expectations.

While St-Pierre is more than on track, he says he won’t be ready for a fight this summer.
