Well son of a bitch. The UFC injury curse has officially become a plague of biblical proportions. Word just broke that UFC welterweight champion George St. Pierre has suffered another knee injury, described as a “blown ACL,” in training and has been forced to withdraw from his scheduled contest against Nick Diaz at UFC 143. Fear not, UFC 143′s main event has already been replaced by a welterweight interim championship bout between Diaz and former number one contender Carlos Condit. A poor turn of luck, no doubt, but it could be worse for those of you who’ve already purchased tickets.
But Christ, can you imagine what the hell has got to be running through Condit’s mind at this point? In a few months time, he has been declared:
Talk about a mindfuck.
UFC 143 is set do go down February 4th at the Mandalay Bay.
