Georges St. Pierre to undergo knee surgery next week


Not even a leave of absence from MMA could keep Georges St. Pierre safe as the former champ recently tore his left ACL. On Wednesday night's UFC Tonight program, it was reported that the French Canadian will undergo surgery next week in Los Angeles.

Dr. Neal ElAttrache, a high-profile surgeon who has also worked on Los Angeles Laker Kobe Bryant and who repaired St. Pierre's right ACL several years back, will perform the surgery on GSP. The last time St. Pierre suffered an ACL tear, he was out of action for over a year and a half.

No one but St. Pierre knows if he planned to return to MMA competition one day but, if he does, this will surely slow down that come back. We wish "Rush" all the best as he prepares for surgery.
