    Default GSP Was Battling Low-Grade Fever Prior To UFC 158

    GSP Was Battling Low-Grade Fever Prior To UFC 158
    By Dana Becker | March 19, 2013

    Source: The MMA Hour
    UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre was battling the effects of a fever, according to his trainer Firas Zahabi. GSP defeated Nick Diaz via decision over the weekend at UFC 158: St-Pierre Vs. Diaz.
    Zahabi, during a recent appearance on The MMA Hour, disclosed that St-Pierre was "a bit warm," but the thought to pull out of the fight was never mentioned.

    "Everybody is a little injured, everybody is a bit busted up," Zahabi said. "He wasn't sick enough to pull the plug on the fight, but he did have the start of the fever. He was warm and he was feeling a little uneasy. He was feeling a little sick."

    GSP mentioned taking some extra time off following the victory, saying he has been going full-force since knee surgery. Johny Hendricks is expected to be his next foe whenever he returns to action.

    Anderson complained about that after the first round of the first fight and was proven afterwards to be false. He made another injury excuse BEFORE the second fight which no one would ever do unless it was bs premade excuse to deflect a potential loss vs someone who already almost beat you. AS has no credibility and comes off as a liar.

    Every time GSP talks about an injury after a fight it has been proven true. Groin vs Alvez, eyepoke vs Shields, ACL etc etc.

    GSP has credibility and so does Faras, Soares and AS have ZERO credibility.

    Way to completely shut down a thread by using logic and truth v3xi...

    Ass...
    Hating on Anderson Silva before it was the cool thing to do.

    The idea of a "true number one contender" is the stupidiest MMA idea to be perpetuated by fans and media, EVER.

    HATES the new MMANEWS forum. Bring back the dark background.

    How has Anderson's rib injury before the first Sonnen fight been proved to be false?

    He mentions the injury many times in his documentary which was made leading up to that fight...and he looked worse physically and performed worse than any of his other UFC fights imo.

    I don't think anyone is seriously disputing Anderson's rib injury...it's just that many of his fans had blown that into "he fought with a broken rib."

    Good for Georges for fighting with a fever.

    EVER? Anyone watching him before 2007 has seen him gas.

    All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.

    OH GOD NOT THE RIB AGAIN!!!!

    Didn't George gas in the first fight with penn?


    move one's bowels to a chicken coop. Kill chickens and pick up feathers. They blow the whistle on for 10 ea on forums. Also bury the bones you find.
