Canadian fans will have to make do with guys like Rory MacDonald and Mark Hominick for the majority of 2012, because our Gretzky, Georges St Pierre, is gone til November:
“Hard training will be in July, and I am looking to fight again, for the timing to be back, in November,” said St. Pierre while serving as a recent guest on Inside MMA . “Late October, early November would be good.”
“Rush” mentioned that he didn’t take enough time to rehab himself from the first injury, adding, “I tried to come back too fast and I was compensating with my other leg. That’s how I hurt myself.”
As for the upcoming Diaz-Condit bout that will crown a champion in his place, St. Pierre started out neutral before offering up his personal preference, saying, “I just hope the best man will win. But if the best man is Nick Diaz, I will appreciate it more, because it will be a better build up for a fight.”
It’s a good thing Georges gets paid so much per fight because he isn’t managing to make it into the cage that often any more. It’s been twice a year since 2008, once in 2011 and now once in 2012. Remember when this gypsy curse thing was kinda funny? Well it’s not any more. Fate, please stop messing with my fighters, kay?
