This week on UFC Central, hosted by “Showdown” Joe Ferraro.
Just over a week prior to UFC 137, welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre was forced out of the main event due to an injury.
In a UFC Central exclusive we go one-on-one with the champ to discuss how the injury occurred, when he expects to be back in action, why the decision to withdraw forced him to tears, and who he thinks will win between BJ Penn and Nick Diaz.
With endless changes to the fight card set for the Manadalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas we breakdown all the match-ups for UFC 137 including the new main event, as well as Mirko Cro Cop vs. Roy Nelson, Cheick Kongo vs. Matt Mitrione and more.
And with BJ Penn and Nick Diaz now headlining the card, in our latest “Beginning of the End” we examine what to expect from the fighters both standing and on the ground.
Plus, we catch up with some of MMA’s finest inlcuding Rashad Evans, Josh Koscheck, Gilbert Melendez, Joe Lauzon and more for their thoughts on who they think will walk away victorious between Penn and Diaz.
