St. Pierre is currently rehabilitating from a torn ACL on his right knee suffered during training in the weeks leading up to UFC 143. Swimming, jogging and even a little bit of gymnastics are the activities St. Pierre has undergone in his road to recovery.
"It makes you see things in perspective and I just want to get back. Wherever the fight will be, I will be glad to fight, I'm very anxious to come back,"
In his absence, the UFC's welterweight division saw the crowning of an interim champion in Carlos Condit. Condit replaced St. Pierre at UFC 143 and defeated Nick Diaz via unanimous decision to win the interim belt.
Upon St. Pierre's return, he will fight Condit to unify the welterweight title with the exact date and venue currently unknown.
"Wherever it is, England, United States, wherever, I'll fight. I'm just going to be happy to be back and fight. When you get hurt for a long time you're forced to get pulled away from training, and you're forced to stop doing what you like to do everyday," St. Pierre said.
Like St. Pierre, Condit is also a student of Greg Jackson. So who will Jackson corner when his two pupils step in the Octagon?
"I don't lose anything because he's not going to be in Carlos Condit's corner either," St. Pierre said explaining that Greg Jackson will corner neither men when they eventually fight one another in the future.
St. Pierre is confident that he can return to fight training in two months, taking it slow in the meantime in order to not risk another injury.
