Video: Georges St. Pierre Explains Knee Injury, Recovery, Return, New UFC 137 Main Event And Much More

In the SportsNet.ca video after the break, UFC Welterweight Champion Georges St. Pierre goes into extensive detail about the knee injury that forced him out of his upcoming fight with Carlos Condit at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Oct. 29, 2011.

"Rush" talks about the three-day chain of events that transpired prior to making the difficult decision to withdraw from UFC 137, which he says was very emotional (he cried) and one that was made reluctantly.

St. PIerre outlines his four-week recovery plan, targeting a Feb. 2012 return to the cage against "The Natural Born Killer."

He also breaks down the new UFC 137 main event between B.J. Penn vs. Nick Diaz, as well as who he thinks will win, depending on which "B.J. Penn shows up." And what about Frankie Edgar recently passing him in Dana White top pound-for-pound mixed martial arts (MMA) rankings? St. Pierre weighs in on that, too.
