UFC Pay-Per-View King Georges St. Pierre will not be coming out of his “semi-retirement” any time soon.
The 33-year-old former welterweight champion has blown out his ACL in his left knee and will need surgery to repair it. This is his second ACL surgery, with the first being on his right knee, which put him out for eight months.
Current UFC Middleweight Champion Chris Weidman withdrew from his fight with Lyoto Machida slated for May 24 in Las Vegas, but a backup fight has already been added. UFC Bantamweight Champion Renan Barao will take on T.J. Dillashaw and be the main event, while Junior dos Santos and Stipe Miocic will still be co-main event.
Looks like Robbie Lawler is pulling a Ronda Rousey. Lawler, coming off his tough decision loss to Johny Hendricks, has agreed to fight Jake Ellenberger at UFC 173, after Ellenberger’s fight with Tarec Saffiedine was canceled when Saffiedine was hurt in training. This is the second time a fight between the two has been scrapped, with Ellenberger pulling out of their first fight.
Metamoris 3 was on Saturday and it was the long anticipated rematch between 10th Planet Jiu-Jitsu founder Eddie Bravo and Royler Gracie, son of Grandmaster Helio Gracie.
This match was to prove if Bravo got “lucky” pulling off a triangle choke over Gracie. The two went the full 20 minutes without either man being submitted, but it did prove one thing — Bravo’s victory in 2003 was no fluke. Gracie ended up in several bad positions, but the Brazilian was able to work his way out and not get tapped out.
