Georges St-Pierre’s return may be sooner than we thought.

According to UFC president Dana White, the sidelined welterweight champion is motivated to do what it takes to get back in the cage as soon as possible, suggesting a long-awaited matchup between he and Nick Diaz could happen in "the summertime."

Of course, a couple things would first have to fall into place: Diaz needs to get by Carlos Condit next month at UFC 143; and St-Pierre would have to make significant strides in his rehab following knee surgery -- the previous prognosis had him hoping to get back in the cage only in November.

However, in an interview following Friday’s UFC on FX event in Nashville, White said the Canadian is feeling so much “hatred” for Diaz, who questioned his injured status at an event last October, that he is just itching to get in the Octagon and quiet the American with his fists.

"GSP's rehab could not be going better," White told FUEL TV’s Ariel Helwani. "I kid you not, he texts me every day. Tonight during the fight, he was texting me pictures of him kicking, of him doing things. He says, 'I am praying every night when I go to bed that Nick Diaz wins this fight'

I have a feeling this is a ploy to keep the official title under GSP's name and he is in-fact not ready for a summer return. Just my hunch.

Good try though, Dana. You had me going there for a minute.

they can keep the official title in his hands as long as they want, espically if there is an interim champ.

I'm not sure you understood me. If you did - great ...and if you didn't, let me explain. The ufc is trying its best to not strip GSP of the official title. If the ufc came out and said, "GSP will not return until the fall or winter," there would be sufficient cause for stripping GSP of the title - and that is something I believe the ufc does not want to do. I believe the ufc is heavily invested in GSP and they want to protect GSP's name and legacy as best they could.
