Georges St. Pierre had a successful surgery on his left knee earlier this week in LA, and he does not seem downbeat at all about the upcoming road to rehab to get himself back to normalcy.
According to a report from Canada’s “The Globe and Mail”, the former UFC welterweight champ will not let this operation affect his overall training, but is still not positive about stepping back into the cage.
“I climbed Everest once before and I’m going to climb it again — if I want to,” St-Pierre told The Canadian Press on Thursday. “It’s not a problem for me. . . . Anyway I didn’t plan to come back to competition before 2015.
“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,” he added.
GSP has reconstructive surgery on his left knee back in 2011, which sidelined him for some time, and with this current operation behind him, the former champ expects to resume training in five months, with full sparring in six to seven months.
GSP also told the writer of the original post that if he does ever come back to the UFC, drug-testing better be the best possible format availabe: “It’s not personal to one fighter,” he said. “It’s personal to me. It’s something that has to be done, I believe.”
