Georges St-Pierre Suffers Another Torn ACL, Return Uncertain

st-pierre

Georges St-Pierre announced in December that he was taking a break from MMA and was uncertain if he would ever return. Well it looks like if the former UFC welterweight champion returns, it won’t be until 2015 at the earliest. St-Pierre announced a short time ago on his Facebook and Twitter pages that he suffered a torn ACL in his left knee.

“Just got confirmation that I tore my left knee ACL during training this week… Surgery in a few days and rehab starts right away. We all face challenges in our lives and I know only one way to take this one: Pain, hard work, no shortcuts and I will soon be back at 100%. Stay tuned and thanks for your amazing support, as always”.

St-Pierre had torn his ACL in 2011 and didn’t return until November of 2012 when he fought three times in a one year span defeating Carlos Condit, Nick Diaz and current UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks.
