Georges St-Pierre on potential comeback: I’m going to get better; I’ll have two bionic knees


GSP spoke to The Canadian Press regarding his successful ACL surgery, as well as the upcoming rehabilitation process.

Former UFC welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre is in high spirits following his successful ACL surgery on Wednesday, and revealed that the injury and recovery process will likely have no impact on his decision to return to the octagon.

St-Pierre tore his left anterior cruciate ligament while at the gym several weeks back in his hometown of Montreal. The news was surprising to many, as the former champ had vacated the title to take a hiatus from MMA competition.

While some took the news as a sign that GSP was preparing for a surprise return this year, the Quebec native revealed that he had no intentions of competing again (if at all) before 2015.

"I climbed Everest once before and I'm going to climb it again - if I want to," St-Pierre told Neil Davidson of The Canadian Press. "It's not a problem for me. . . . Anyway I didn't plan to come back to competition before 2015. "

St-Pierre is confident in his ability to recover from the injury, as he has a proven track record with ACL recovery.

"And if I want to come back, when I want to come back, I'll do it again. I'll have all the tools to do it again. I'm not going to be less strong or less athletic - I'm going to be just better. I'll have two bionic knees,"

The former champ will spend the next three months undergoing the rehabilitation process in Los Angeles, and will be using the same team from his last operation.
