Georges St-Pierre UFC 129UFC president Dana White recently mentioned that he was targeting UFC 154 to showcase welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre’s return to face interim titleholder Carlos Condit, as well as a contender’s bout pitting Martin Kampmann against Johny Hendricks.

Those plans haven’t changed.

White reiterated as much at Thursday’s UFC 149: Faber vs. Barão pre-fight press conference, saying, “Unless any complications happen, (GSP is) good to go.”

St-Pierre has been on the sidelines since the UFC 129 mega-event in Toronto last year, where he won a unanimous decision over Jake Shields.

He was slated to return to the Octagon in October, but fell off the UFC 137 fight card due to a knee injury. St-Pierre was then slated for the UFC 143 Super Bowl weekend fight card, but withdrew from the fight as well when it was revealed that he had severely damaged his right ACL, requiring surgery.

He has since been rehabbing the injury, slowly working his way back into form.

St-Pierre recently revealed that he is fully back to training and, as White confirmed, it appears he is on track for a UFC 154 showdown with Condit on Nov. 17  in Montreal.
