Georges St-Pierre UFC 129The final hurdles have been cleared for Georges St-Pierre to return to action later this year.

The UFC’s reigning welterweight champion says he has now been medically cleared to compete and aims for his return at UFC 154 in Montreal this November.

“Yesterday was the final chapter of my road to recovery, I’m now medically cleared to compete in professional mixed martial arts,” St-Pierre wrote on his Facebook page on Tuesday.

St-Pierre has been rehabbing his surgically repaired knee for the past several months after tearing his ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) last year.

The UFC has held off officially announcing St-Pierre’s next fight until he was medically cleared to return to action, but it seems like any day now GSP’s return bout against UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit can be made official.

In closing, St-Pierre said, “Rendez-vous le 17 November, UFC 154 Montreal,” which, when translated, means he has an appointment on Nov. 17 at UFC 154.

St-Pierre has been out of action since April 2011 when he defeated Jake Shields in the main event of UFC 129 in Toronto. He was twice been scheduled for bouts after that date, but knee injuries sidelined him both times.

Now with his ACL surgery behind him and receiving his medical clearance, St-Pierre can return to try and cement his claim to the welterweight title he’s held and defended for the past four years.
