Diego Sanchez and Josh Koscheck exchanged some choice words which were followed by a shove from Mr. Sanchez. UFC officials immediately stepped between the two fighters to prevent any further action. Besides the little Koscheck-Sanchez scuffle, the weigh-ins were rather tame.
Newly crowned UFC welterweight champion Georges “Rush” St. Pierre has been forced to pull out of his fight at UFC 67: All or Nothing against Matt Serra due to a knee injury he suffered while training for his first title defense.
Georges St. Pierre earned the welterweight crown at UFC 65: Bad Intentions when he rolled through the welterweight stud Matt Hughes. Before earning the rematch with Hughes, St. Pierre was forced to fight five times against the division’s elite. He showed he was the real deal and worthy of a title shot when he ran through top contenders Frank Trigg and Sean Sherk. Shortly after the domination of Sherk, St. Pierre squeaked out a spilt decision victory over B.J. Penn which was enough to earn him a welterweight title shot. When St. Pierre finally got his shot against Hughes he didn’t disappoint.
St. Pierre’s scheduled opponent at UFC 67: All or Nothing was Matt Serra. Serra earned the UFC welterweight title shot when he won season 4 of ‘The Ultimate Fighter’.
Update: 5:30 PM - On the UFC HP, Dana White released a shot statement. “Unfortunately Georges St. Pierre was injured in training and we’re hopeful that he’ll recover quickly,” said UFC President Dana White. “We look forward to having Matt Serra’s title fight as soon as we can.”
