A serious injury has knocked Georges St-Pierre (22-2 MMA, 16-2 UFC) out of UFC 143′s main event and will be put on the shelf for 10 months.
UFC president Dana White today tweeted the sad news.
“GSP blown acl will be out for 10 mos.,” White tweeted. “Now Condit vs Diaz for the interim welterweight title on Feb 4th in Las Vegas!!”
It’s not yet known if Condit’s original opponent at UFC 143, Josh Koscheck (16-5 MMA, 14-5 UFC), will fight on the card.
UFC 143 takes place Feb. 4 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The event’s main card airs live on pay-per-view.
