UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre underwent surgery today on his ACL. GSP withdrew from his match with Nick Diaz at UFC 143, due to a blown ACL while training. According to his doctor in Los Angeles, California the surgery was a “huge success.”
Georges announced via Twitter.com…
Dr. ElAttrache says my surgery (ACL patellar tendon autograft) was huge success! Ligament very strong. Tks for support!
When Dana White announced that the champ was out of his fight with Diaz, it was said that he would be out at least 10 months. There is no time frame for his return to the octagon, however with the surgery success look for him to return within that 10 month window.
