Maybe this is why GSP couldn’t see

Well, I knew while I was watching Georges St. Pierre take on Jake Shields on Saturday night that St. Pierre’s eye issue didn’t come from a rabbit punch jab by Shields.

Here is clear video evidence of a pretty ugly eye poke during the fight.

Let me just state for the record that I don’t think this was intentional, but it was a pretty sloppy way of striking in a title fight at the UFC level. It almost looks as if Shields was trying to lay down an infamous Nick Diaz “Stockton slap.”

But, given the troubles Alan Belcher has had getting back into the octagon due to an eye injury, you hope that this won’t plague St. Pierre for a long time and he will be able to get back to training soon.
