UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierrewas battling the effects of a fever, according to his trainer Firas Zahabi. GSP defeated Nick Diaz via decision over the weekend at UFC 158: St-Pierre Vs. Diaz.

Zahabi, during a recent appearance on The MMA Hour, disclosed that St-Pierre was "a bit warm," but the thought to pull out of the fight was never mentioned.

"Everybody is a little injured, everybody is a bit busted up," Zahabi said. "He wasn't sick enough to pull the plug on the fight, but he did have the start of the fever. He was warm and he was feeling a little uneasy. He was feeling a little sick."

GSP mentioned taking some extra time off following the victory, saying he has been going full-force since knee surgery. Johny Hendricks is expected to be his next foe whenever he returns to action.

Slight fever coupled with Jake Shields bickering outside his locker, could be why GSP seemed "off"

 

Just speculating.

He should get on Fever Replacement Therapy if his levels are low.

Other then playing a part in his tiring quicker then expected I highly doubt it affected his performance.

Nick is a tough guy and GSP fought a great fight.

The fever is a moot point, IMO

I'm glad he got through the fight ok. Doing exercise with a fever can be fatal.

Fever: "I'm gonna throw off your riddum, homie!"

GSP: "I am not impressed by your performance."

To be fair, Diaz also looked tired too uncharacteristically, though he also looked like he kinda gave up too.

Ive lot tons of respect for Jake for causing that scene in the locker room though and creating a thread on here immediately when it turns out he ok'd the wraps but wanted someone else to have a second look and apparently that is not of protocol, you only get one look.

I'm surprised there hasn't been a Nick Diaz/High-Grade joke in this thread by now.
