Welterweight champ Georges St-Pierre has gone dark since posting his ninth consecutive victory this past Saturday at UFC 129. GSP was rushed to the hospital immediately following the record-setting show, so the media was unable to get a close up at the post-fight presser of the left eye that caused the king so much trouble in his battle with Jake Shields.
Thankfully, Octagon ring girl Arianny Celeste managed to snap a couple of pics with St-Pierre at a recent party. The card-toting vixen didn’t mention exactly when the pictures were taken, but she posted them on here Twitter account late Tuesday night.
Oh yeah, this guy named Jon “Bones” Jones also wiggled his way into the shot:
On Sunday morning, GSP updated his health status via his Twitter account. Although a day had passed since suffering the injury, St-Pierre still had difficulty focusing out of his eye.
“Hey everybody, leaving the hospital soon, just finished all my eye tests, I still don’t see anything from my left eye but I’ll be [fine],” St-Pierre tweeted. “… Just want to say that I am ok. I’ll need to see a doctor in the next days! Yesterday I was told it was not a retina problem.”
On Monday, MMA’s most marketable athlete was issued a 60-day medical suspension from the Ontario Athletic Commission.
Over 55,700 screaming fanatics watched St-Pierre post a unanimous decision victory over Shields inside the Rogers Centre in Toronto, Canada this past Saturday.
