UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre has completed his surgery to repair the badly torn ACL that has sidelined the champ for 9 to 11 months. Here’s the official tweet from Rush himself.


“Dr. ElAttrache says my surgery (ACL patellar tendon autograft) was huge success! Ligament very strong. Tks for support!”

Of course with the champ in recovery mode for such a long period, we will see a new interim champ crowned between Nick Diaz and Carlos Condit at UFC 143 on Feb. 4 in Las Vegas, NV.
