GSP dropped him with a leg kick, took him down, out boxed him, all while only being able to see out of one eye...how can anyone hate on that? I do agree he does need to finish some fights but he is for sure p4p top 3 in the world...what happen to giving fighters respect for the simple fact that they actually get in the ring and fight?

A scratched cornea definately causes pain and a lot of blured vision also feels like something is in your eye you cant get out. If you listen to him between rounds this is what he described. He said he couldn't see its all blurry and i think something is in my eye. He even poored water in it trying to rinse it out. The long term uness its a retina issue should be absolutely fine. Retina issue I would think they find in the hospital with the test they probably put him under.The level of hate for some one you have never met on here from some of you is absolutely fucking rediculous. You act like this guy winning is an affront to all you stand for. You people have more venom in your heart toward GSP and other fighters then any person should harbor toward any human being. Get over it and grow up.

Hopefully everything clears up. Now I really can't see how people can give the guy a hard time for "not finishing". Baffles me. Couldn't see for 4 of 5 rounds and still beat shields easily.

Lol, and GSP dropped shields with a kick to the head while blind in one eye. Other than that, GSP is my favorite fighter, but damn, he needs a finish in the worst way.

 Yeah, Shields standup is so spectacular. Eye-poking happens.

 About 3 years ago, I got a chemical burn on my eyeball at work(I know...fuck me, I'm a klutz).  Basically, the burn was the equivalent of a bunch of little scratches on the cornea.  Besides being really painful, I couldn't see shit for a couple days-thats what freaked me out.  When something like your sight is suddenly taken away, even in one eye, its hard to think about anything BUT the injury and the possibility of permanent damage.  I think its an accomplisnment for Georges to continue fighting thru it.

When gsp says he couldn't see, that was exactly what I was thinking. I remember Lamon Brewster had a detached retina in his fight against Liakhovich. Since round 1 he couldn't see and then he went the full distance to 12. Hope GSP is OK.

The UG has really turned to shit. So some of you idiots would be glad his career was over so you poor schmucks don't have to see him fight again?
