UFC Champ Georges St. Pierre Continues ACL Recovery Process, Goes For A Run

It has been over thirteen months since UFC fans have seen Georges St. Pierre step into the Octagon to defend his status as the best welterweight (and one of the best fighters in any weight class) on the planet. In that time, the division has undergone a complete makeover. After beating Jake Shields at UFC 129, there was a sense of "who's left?" and now there are seven men in the top ten of the SB Nation / USA Today Consensus Rankings who GSP has not yet beat.

GSP is now in the process of rehabilitating an ACL injury with an end goal of returning to defend his title against UFC interim champion Carlos Condit as soon as November. The recovery process is something that has been documented in a series of YouTube videos.

The latest entry sees GSP going through intense workouts and, most interestingly, shows Georges get on a track and test his knee out by going for a run and even a light sprint.

At one point in the video, while jogging with his trainer, GSP speeds up a bit and, after his trainer tells him not to run on his own, Georges says "My knee feels good, man. I don't feel any pain." St. Pierre continued later in the video by explaining "I feel much better now. Better range of motion, better everything. Since I don't lift weight, man...my muscle more elastic." He closed the video by saying "Man I can't wait. Holy shit, it's gonna be crazy."
