End of round 3, actually.

So 2 rounds.

Which is precisely when the fight went to shite.

I thought the first couple of rounds were half decent. GSP was still unwilling to finish, but he didn't look nearly as bad as he did in the final round.

Personally I thought all the round were boing. I mean hats off to gsp he showed some good technical striking even after losing sight in one eye and won 4 out of five rounds but just not laying it on the line. Nothing against him as a fighter and he does what he has to so he can get a win which is what you need to do. Alot of people bash him for this but hell to be hones if I was champ and it worked for me I would do it. However it's just kind of boring to watch. Just my opinion though.

I hope its not serious but this could be career changing. Amare Stoudemire from the NBA got a similar injury and now had to wear glasses when he plays, and another fighter like I mentioned had his career in jeopardy after a similar incident.
Alan Belcher is the guy you're looking for. He's been out for over a year. Coming back soon though!

I believe you're talking about James Irvin who caught a knuckle in the eye from Alessio Sakara.

I agree man, hopefully GSP will be alright and has no lasting eye damage.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

You better have touched wood after saying that! It was my biggest fear for him also. Sugar Ray Leonard 2.....

I think it is a scratch though, it's what it sounded like to me.

GSP said round 2 after the fight so I was basing it on what he said. They kept showing the punch in round 3 and Rogan kept saying that did it but that may not have been what caused the problem. I suspect that GSP knows when he can't see properly.

I've been poked in the eye really hard during a pickup basketball game and it isn't pretty.


i had double vision that lasted for quite a while. so i'll give gsp the benefit of the doubt on that one.

still that didn't stop GSP from landing that left high kick to the head. and that definitely shouldn't stop him from jumping on the guy and finishing him off after that. He was playing it extra safe last night. Unfortunately, it costs him a lot of criticism from fans and critics alike

At one point in the fight, shields did some kind of zombie walk into GSP like he was going for some clich/takedown but his hands and fingers were straight out. I said to my friends that he just poked GSP in the face. When they kept repeating that punch I still thought it was from the clinch attempt earlier.

Here's a pic of when the injury happened. It was at 2:20 of the third round. Immediately after the poke GSP starts blinking like mad and is wiping his eye for the rest of the fight.

I know Rogan was stating it was a knuckle and they were showing replays but this is when Georges game goes somewhat south.
