UFC curse strikes again - St. Pierre out of UFC 137

Georges St. Pierre has pulled out of UFC 137 for his welterweight title defense against Carlos Condit with a knee injury.  Dana White texted us and said there would be no replacement fight for Condit, meaning B.J. Penn vs. Nick Diaz would move to the main event spot.  Because they were under contract for 3 rounds, it will remain a three round fight.

White said it doesn't look like St. Pierre will need surgery, and that he hopes to be able to make the match with Condit before the end of the year.
