It appears that the welterweight champ, Georges St Pierre (22-2), will be sidelined for the next 10 months following a new injury, obtained training for Nick Diaz (26-7), that caused serious knee problems.
Apparently the surgery went as well as could be expected but the injury is so severe that it will take that amount of time to fully rehabilitate the injury, according to Georges’ facebook page:
It’s been a month since my surgery and very happy with results- really amazing what the body is capable of. On deck for physio: manual therapy for patellar and scar tissue mobilization, ice, ultrasound, compression, quad sets, straight leg raises, isometric quad and hamstring exercises, increased ROM and stationary cycling…I’d love to hear any tips you might have that could help me!
Until Georges is fight ready, the world of MMA will soldier on and the belt will go up for an interim title holder. Taking the champs place will Carlos Condit (27-5) against Nick Diaz.
We here at the MMA Beatdown wish Georges St. Pierre a speedy recovery, and we will be looking very forward to your return to the octagon.
