GSP previously had a torn ACL in his right knee in 2011. The injury put him out for most of 2012 until he was able to return to face Carlos Condit in November. Since he announced his taking a break from MMA after his last fight, a split decision against Johny Hendricks at UFC 167 last November, he's never been committed against a potential return to fighting.
