UFC Covering The Cost Of GSP’s Surgery Despite Having Contract Frozen

UFC President, Dana White spoke this week about how former welterweight champion, Georges St. Pierre will have his ACL surgery paid for by the UFC despite the French-Canadian’s contract being on hold after he hinted he might hang up his gloves for good.

White, speaking via sources said:

“We have health insurance for the guys. It should be covered even if the contract is frozen. He’s still under contract; he’s still a UFC fighter. I haven’t spoken to GSP. He blew his ACL, and last time he blew his ACL he was out for a year and two months. So that’s no fun for him.”
