The 33-year-old former UFC welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre, have received a medical clearance this week after meeting his doctor this week in Los Angeles in order to get back into his full time MMA training.

White and UFC chairman/CEO Lorenzo Fertitta visited Georges St-Pierre this week in Montreal to check on his medical condition and see what is the former champion doing.

“They cleared GSP’s knee,” White told “After surgery like that it still takes about another 30 days before you start to mentally feel right. But he’s in a good spot.”

St-Pierre suffered a torn left ACL in March and hasn’t fought since last November. After defeating Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 to retain the welterweight title, he decided to vacate the welterweight belt in order to take some time off from the sport. He has never officially announced his retirement or his intentions to fight again.

“His knee just got cleared and he’ll start training again and getting back into shape. He’ll let us know when he’s ready [to fight again],” White said.
