Former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre tore his left ACL in training (Getty)
He tore the ACL in his right knee in 2011 and missed about a year.
St-Pierre wrote, "Just got confirmation that I tore my left knee AC during training this week. ... Surgery in a few days and rehab starts right away. We all face challenges in our lives and I know only one way to take this one: Pain, hard work, no shortcuts and I will soon be back at 100%"
UFC president Dana White has said he is certain St-Pierre would return to competition, but if he does, it's going to be much longer than originally anticipated.
