Video: The return of Georges St. Pierre at UFC 154

After a 19 month layoff, Georges St. Pierre will finally make his highly anticipated return to the Octagon when he battles Carlos Condit to unify the welterweight championships in the main event of UFC 154 on Nov. 17, 2012, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

He's baaaa-aaaack.

That's right, ladies and sirs, one of the greatest mixed martial artists to ever grace the Earth will return to active competition for the first time in 19 months on Sat., Nov. 17, 2012, when he battles Carlos Condit in the main event of UFC 154 at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

It's been a long and difficult road to back to this point, too, as "Rush" has had to battle back from a torn ACL in his knee, a debilitating injury that has cost some athletes their career.

At first, St. Pierre feared the same.

"I was wrestling, trying to avoid a takedown. I hurt my knee. I found out it was my ACL that was torn. It's a devastating injury because if it's not taking care of well -- the right people, the right team -- you can never come back the same. You know, it's hard, because you lose hope and sometimes you see your trainer looking at you like, 'my god, he might never ever come back again.' I was convinced that the best Georges St. Pierre was behind me."

But those long days in the training room with all the advancements in modern medicine have apparently paid off, as the French-Canadian whoop ass machine has reportedly returned to form and is ready to show "The Natural Born Killer" what it's like to fight the best in the world.

If that is, indeed, still true today. We'll find out next week.
