Much of the talk about what should happen next with UFC interim welterweight champion Carlos Condit comes down to how much longer "real champion" Georges St. Pierre will be on the shelf after suffering a very serious knee injury. In a recent video put on the UFC's YouTube channel, St. Pierre says that he is currently ahead of schedule, he just needs to be careful to not re-injure himself over the coming weeks and months.
From the video:
I feel very good. I'm ahead of schedule. I feel sometimes I want to do a little bit more but even though I feel good my graft is not fused properly, 100-percent. I need to remain calm. The danger with a lot of athletes is to push through the pain and try to go to fast. If I do so, it might loosen up the graft and I might have to start the old process again and I don't want to do that.
