Georges St. Pierre Undergoes Successful Knee Surgery

The first step in the process for Georges St. Pierre to return to the octagon was apparently successful. The UFC welterweight champion had been scheduled to have undergo knee surgery sometime this week, and it ended up going down today. Afterwards, he tweeted that everything went well:

Dr. ElAttrache says my surgery (ACL patellar tendon autograft) was huge success! Ligament very strong. Tks for support! http://t.co/CB2blPAW

He also included a picture of himself with the doctor that performed the surgery. St. Pierre was expected to defend his UFC welterweight title at UFC 143, but suffered a partial tear of the meniscus and a full tear of the ACL in his right knee. The initial prognosis by UFC president Dana White was that GSP would be out 10 months, but GSP himself has said that 6-9 months is more realistic. Nick Diaz will now face Carlos Condit for an interim UFC welterweight title at UFC 143.
