Its been a long year and a half for UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre. The champ took to Twitter and Facebook today to announce that he’s been cleared to compete again after a lengthy absence from the cage. Here’s the message St-Pierre wrote his fans on Facebook: 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!!!

Georges St. Pierre vs
Nick Diaz Carlos Condit is just the latest of at least six UFC PPV headliners to be cancelled in a very tough 2011. Kid Nate runs through the rubble at MMA Nation.
Jonathan Snowden argues while Nick Diaz no question acted unprofessionally, removing him from his title fight against GSP is punishing him for the same behavior that made him the star he is today.
