Dana White Says Georges St-Pierre Is 'Good to Go' for November Return

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre absolutely, unequivocally, 100 percent will make his return from a knee injury on November 17, when he meets interim champion Carlos Condit in the main event of UFC 154 in Montreal.

At least as of now.

Asked about St-Pierre's status during Thursday's UFC 149 press conference in Calgary, UFC president Dana White said that the champ's return is on track.

"Yup, as far as I know, right here, right now, he's gonna fight, yes," said White. "Unless any complications happen, he's good to go."

At four years and three months, St-Pierre is the second-longest-reigning champion in UFC history, behind current middleweight champion Anderson Silva. He's won nine consecutive fights, but has been out of competition since April 30, 2011, when he defeated Jake Shields at Toronto's Rogers Centre in the main event of UFC 129.

Knee woes first kept St-Pierre out of a UFC 137 bout with Condit; then a UFC 143 matchup against Nick Diaz. St-Pierre underewent surgery on his right ACL and Condit instead defeated Diaz for the interim welterweight title.

On June 27, St-Pierre tweeted "I'm back in Montreal and full-time training! Already tried a few kicks - right knee is super strong," indicating that he's back on track for the Condit bout.
