[The Tens] Top 10 MMA Fighters Of 2012
5) Georges St-Pierre
The welterweight king returned. 18 months out with an ACL injury and a thirsty contender pool generated plenty of questions surrounding Georges St-Pierre’s return. The UFC’s top pay-per-view draw reminded everyone how valuable how he is to the octagon in his absence and upon return, delivered one of his most exciting performances in years by shutting down Carlos Condit but not before having to stay out of the jaws of defeat. Condit finished all but two opponents in victory in his career, so for GSP to take a head kick and nearly drop his belt means he came back from a place few ever have.
