UFC President Dana White To Update St-Pierre’s Injury and Recovery Status on Wednesday

Posted on by Damon Martin

Georges St-Pierre is injured and out of UFC 137, but on Wednesday UFC President Dana White will let everyone know exactly what happened.

That’s according to St-Pierre’s lead trainer Firas Zahabi who spoke to MMAWeekly.com on Tuesday night.

While several reports have been made about St-Pierre’s injury revolving around an injured knee, Zahabi could only give a few details and stated that the incident occurred today.

“All I can say is he was at Tristar gym working out and he hurt himself. Tomorrow I believe Dana White is going to tell the press,” Zahabi stated.

“He was sparring today at Tristar and he got hurt at the gym.”

Current rumors have stated that St-Pierre will be on the sidelines for a few weeks, but the only thing for sure is it’s not something that’s going to hamper the champion for any extended period of time.

“One thing that’s definite, he won’t be fighting next week unfortunately. It’s not a career ending injury by any means, but Dana White’s going to tell everybody the details tomorrow,” Zahabi commented.

The UFC currently has a conference call scheduled with the media at 2pm ET on Wednesday with Dana White along with UFC 137 headliners Nick Diaz and B.J. Penn. Originally, both St-Pierre and Carlos Condit were scheduled to be on the call, but it’s unknown if either of them will make an appearance with this shift in the card.

MMAWeekly.com will have live updates when the conference call happens on Wednesday.
