GSP Injured, Carlos Condit Pulled, BJ Penn vs. Nick Diaz Now Main Event!

UFC welterweight champion, Georges St-Pierre has injured his knee in training and has been forced to withdraw from his UFC 137 championship bout with number onew contender, Carlos Condit set for October 29th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

UFC President, Dana White, posting via his Twitter account, said:

“I just land in NYC and what do I always say? I have to deal with bad shit everyday. GSP is out with an injury”

Sources close to the event have revealed that Condit will be pulled from the card and will likely face the Canadian further down the line if the injury isn’t too severe. BJ Penn vs. Nick Diaz will now main event the card, and we can only hope that this match up may be switched to a five round non title fight!
