Dana White and Lorenzo Fertitta were spotted meeting with Georges St. Pierre this week in Canada, but it seems that they haven’t been able to lock down if and when the former welterweight champion will return to the Octagon yet.

The 33 year-old GSP has been on hiatus since his last decision victory over Johny Hendricks almost a year ago at UFC 167, after which he vacated his title claiming that he needed some time off for personal reasons.

In the months that followed he suffered a a torn ACL back in March which resulted in surgery, ensuring that there would be no chance of him making a quick comeback to the UFC even if he wanted to.

The good news is that, according to White in an interview on yesterday, GSP has now been given the all-clear to train again.

“They cleared GSP’s knee,” White said. “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.”

The bad news is that at this stage they don’t appear to by any further forward in knowing whether the Canadian superstar will opt to resume his career or not.

“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,” was as much as White would say on the matter.
