UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre has cleared the last hurdle in the way of a UFC 154 title unification bout with Carlos Condit. GSP turned to his Facebook page today to tell the world that he's been medically cleared to compete in the octagon once again:

Yesterday was the final chapter of my Road to Recovery- I'm now medically cleared to compete in professional mixed martial arts! Big thanks to all my fans for the amazing support during those 9 long months of rehab- couldn't have done it without you. Also special thanks to Dr. ElAttrache and Heather at Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic + Gavin MacMillan at Sport Science Lab. I've been so lucky to work with such professional and kind people and I've learned a lot from them. It's been an incredible experience. Rendez-vous le 17 novembre, UFC 154, Montréal!!!

St. Pierre last stepped into the cage in April 2011 to face Jake Shields at UFC 129. He won that bout by unanimous decision. He had been expected to meet Nick Diaz at UFC 143, but blew out his knee and has been out since then. A bout with UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva could happen after his bout with Condit, win or lose.
