GSP had injured achilles and a fever Saturday

 

Georges St-Pierre managed to dominate and beat Nick Diaz despite an injury on Saturday night at UFC 158 in Montreal.

The TVA Sports has learned that the Quebec fighter injured his Achilles tendon at the end of training camp.

"Fortunately, there were no tears," said trainer Firas Zahabi. "That said, it was very tense and very painful, but not enough to cancel the fight."

"Our concern was that the tendon tears during combat. At the moment, we do not know if he aggravated his injury, but he certainly will undergo treatment in the coming weeks so the tendon can heal properly."

In addition to being hurt, St-Pierre was feverish during the fight against Diaz.

"It is certain that these two elements affected his performance", continued Zahabi. "He found it exceedingly difficult."

"He is physically and mentally exhausted. I think he will need at least six months of rest before returning to the Octagon. "

As Johny Hendricks has reported that his hand did not break, all signs are pointing to a GSP vs. Bigg Rigg fight in the Fall.

To be fair, Nick probably fought sick as well, since the commission doesn't recognize California's medical Marijuana laws, it's unlikely that he was properly able to medicate in the days prior to the fight.

Stop flat out making shit up. You're doing a disservice to the entire forum when you lie. He said GSP has been going at 100% since rehab on his knee started and that he needs 6 months off because he's both mentally and physically exhausted.
