Georges St. Pierre has been sidelined with an ACL injury since December and has been steadily working on strengthening his surgically repaired knee. The dominant champion is now back in training, and is penciled in to unify the welterweight crowns against Carlos Condit on UFC 154 this November.

Check out the video below which shows first footage of GSP hitting the pads at the Tristar Gym since recovering from his injury:

Recovering from such a serious injury is no joke, as several high profile athletes have tried to returned but never really looked the same. There are exceptions though, as some athletes have come back even better, with top NBA stars such as Al Jefferson, David West, and Baron Davis performing much better even after ACL injuries.

St. Pierre obviously shows a bit of rust on that clip, but that's to be expected having been out for a while and still being relatively early in his recovery. Time will tell, but hopefully we get to see the same explosiveness and movement when he eventually makes his return to the Octagon.
