UFC 154: Dana White says Georges St. Pierre is 'good to go' for Nov. 17 in Montreal

As of now, we're less than four months away from the return of Georges St. Pierre at UFC 154.

That's according to Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) President Dana White, who yesterday (July 19, 2012) fielded questions (via MMA Fighting) about the comeback of the promotion's 170-pound champion during the UFC 149: "Faber vs. Barao" pre-fight press conference in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Barring any unforeseen "complications," it appears to be all systems go.

"Yup, as far as I know, right here, right now, he's gonna fight, yes. Unless any complications happen, he's good to go."

And that's probably music to Carlos Condit's ears.

"The Natural Born Killer" took some heat from mixed martial arts (MMA) fans for his decision to sit on the sidelines after winning the Interim title with a close unanimous decision win over Nick Diaz at UFC 143 back in February. A rematch was hastily assembled; however, Diaz was benched after failing his drug test and Condit took a seat.

Those unique circumstances helped UFC matchmaker Joe Silva schedule the next two welterweights in line for a potential title shot, Martin Kampmann vs. Johny Hendricks, for the Nov. 17 pay-per-view (PPV) event from Montreal's Bell Centre in Quebec.

Main event? Check. Co-main event? Check, check.

St. Pierre was forced to put his 170-pound strap behind glass while he rehabs a surgically repaired knee, which has led to speculation that he could return as a different fighter when he finally makes his way back to the Octagon. Perhaps we'll see less wrestling and more stand-up?

Tick-tock...tick-tock...
