Sportsnet.ca is reporting that UFC welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre has received the results of the MRI on his injured groin and he will not require surgery.
St. Pierre’s management released the following statement:
“Evaluation of the results of an MRI indicate that no surgery will be required, and Georges should be back in the gym training within a few weeks after a brief rehabilitation.”
St. Pierre sustained the injury last weekend while defending his UFC welterweight title against Thiago “Pitbull” Alves. St. Pierre said he felt the muscle snap during the third round of his title defense.
St. Pierre’s next opponent will be the winner of the UFC 103 showdown between Martin Kampmann and Mike Swick.
