Georges St-Pierre medically cleared, bout with Carlos Condit on for UFC 154 in Montreal

By: Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

After a spring and summer that has featured nothing but injury woes and shakeups for the UFC, some good news came out on Tuesday for one of the events this fall.

UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St-Pierre, who has been on the sidelines since last year with a pair of knee injuries, and who has spent most of 2012 rehabbing from surgery to repair a torn ACL, announced on Tuesday that he's been medically cleared to return to competition.

Going on Twitter and other social networking platforms, St-Pierre revealed the good news, and confirmed that he's set for Nov. 17 and UFC 154 in Montreal. His bout with Carlos Condit has been expected for that event for the better part of the year, and now he's set to return home for sure.

Penick's Analysis: This is fantastic confirmation for a fight we've been expecting. St-Pierre's return has been long-awaited, and this fight with Condit should be a fantastic event. After a string of really negative news in the last couple of weeks, it's nice to have something to truly look forward to, and St-Pierre's return is just that.
