Dana White: Knee Injury forces Georges St. Pierre out of UFC 137Posted on October 18, 2011, 04:23 PM by Anton Gurevich
In a somewhat unfortunate turn of events for this month's UFC 137 fight card in Las Vegas, Nevada, UFC President Dana White revealed on Twitter that Georges "Rush" St. Pierre is out of UFC Welterweight Title clash with Carlos "The Natural Born Killer" Condit. White tweeted "it's just one of those days", to the disappointment of MMA fans around the world that expected to see the French-Canadian in his second title defense this year:
White went on to add: "It's GSP'S knee. We will sit Carlos to wait for GSP. It's looking so far like he could be ready in a couple months. Still early to tell tho".
St. Pierre's original opponent, Nick Diaz, is still on the card and will be facin BJ Penn in what is now the new main event of the night. The card still features a great portion of talent, with Matt Mitrione vs. Cheick Kongo, Cro Cop vs. Nelson, Hioki vs. Roop, and Donald Cerrone vs. Dennis Siver, that will be probably promoted to the main card of the night.
