He’s baaaaaaack! After spending the last six months recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL, UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre has finally been given a green-light to pull the governor off and start training at his regular pace rather than a reduced one to protect his knee. The news, no doubt music to fans’ ears, was confirmed earlier today by St-Pierre on Twitter. “I’m back in Montreal and full-time training! Already tried a few kicks – right knee is super strong,” wrote the 31-year old French-Canadian.
Carlos Condit is tired of critics taking aim at his competitive desire, courage, and confidence when it comes to waiting for welterweight title-holder Georges St-Pierre to recover from knee surgery rather than risk his interim belt against a top contender in the period beforehand. Condit hasn’t fought since early February and isn’t expected to face GSP until mid-November. The 28-year old Condit was asked about the heat he’s gotten from fans, fighters, and media in relation to his break from action and made it clear the decision to do so is not necessarily up to him.
Assuming UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre continues progressing as planned where his recovery from knee surgery is concerned, he will fight interim title-holder Carlos Condit on November 17 in Montreal at UFC 154 as has been planned for months. However, it looks like a contingency plan has been put in place just to be safe with the UFC also booking a bout between Martin Kampmann – Johny Hendricks at the same show. UFC President Dana White announced the company’s plan last night after UFC on FX 3 had concluded.

Martin Kampmann-Johny Hendricks being targeted for UFC 154 in Montreal
UFC welterweight Martin Kampmann ’s nickname is “The Hitman” based on his ability to take contracted targets out. However, after his last two fights some fans might feel as though the moniker stems from the number of times he gets hit before mounting a comeback to grab victory from the jaws of defeat. A still-blooded Kampmann acknowledged the perception his recent outings may have created in a post-fight interview on Fuel TV, joking he could employ a new strategy for his next bout.

Tomorrow night Martin Kampmann will take to the cage for the first time in a fight-round fight when he faces Jake Ellenberger at the Ultimate Fighter 15 Finale . While some competitors might dread the notion of preparing for two extra frames, Kampmann actually appears excited for the additional time given his aversion to allowing scorecards to determine a winner. “Five rounds (are) a lot more than three rounds.

Martin Kampmann ready to “go in there and beat up Jake Ellenberger”
Jake Ellenberger knows he can continue to rapidly climb up the UFC ‘s welterweight ladder when he steps inside the Octagon this Friday night against Martin Kampmann . Since a loss to Carlos Condit in 2009, Ellenberger has posted six consecutive victories including wins over John Howard, Jake Shields , and most recently Diego Sanchez . “It’s definitely an honor to be a main event again,” said the 27-5 Ellenberger in a recent interview on UFC Ultimate Insider .
UFC President Dana White saw enough from Johny Hendricks Saturday night at UFC on FOX 3 to proclaim the former Oklahoma State University wrestler a legitimate contender in the welterweight division. Hendricks secured a decision victory over Josh Koscheck in the co-main event from East Rutherford, New Jersey, pushing his record s to 13-1. The accomplished wrestler is just the second fighter to hold wins over both Koscheck and Jon Fitch , two former title-contenders
With a nickname like “Rush” it makes sense that UFC welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre is in a hurry to get back inside the Octagon after an extended absence brought on by pair of knee injuries. However, the more-serious of the two – a complete ACL tear – occurred for that exact reason

At 22-years old, Rory MacDonald is one of the youngest fighters on the UFC roster. He’s also one of the most highly-touted with a 12-1 record including wins over a number of respectable adversaries and his only loss involving last-second stumble against Carlos Condit costing him a likely decision victory. While his success at such a young age may surprise many fans it certainly doesn’t come as a shock to MacDonald
