update

Update:

The trainers said it will be 5-10 days before St. Pierre's vision clears and bleeding in the eye, which Danaher called "heavy," will subside.

St. Pierre, the No. 2 pound-for-pound fighter in MMA according to ESPN.com, intended to travel to Manhattan and train with Danaher at the Renzo Gracie jiu-jitsu academy on Monday, however he is prohibited from training for two weeks.

"Doctors said if he trains it will worsen the bleeding inside the eye," said Danaher, St. Pierre's Brazilian jiu-jitsu instructor of more than 10 years. "He will resume training when normalcy returns."


full story.

Bleeding in the eye? For a week? All the detractors should recant.

I did find it hilarious when he told his corner "I can't see" and they said, "you have one good eye, don't worry about it" (or something to that extent)

I know Rogan was stating it was a knuckle and they were showing replays but this is when Georges game goes somewhat south.
That's a good catch, but I've rewatched the fight and there are actually several such sketchy parts. Another similar incident occurs at about 3:57 of round 2. It happens quickly, and the camera angle isn't the greatest, but Jake's hand is clearly open and it appears to make contact with Georges's face around his eyes. Immediately afterward, Georges starts taking jabs right on the face. Doesn't block and no head movement whatsoever, as if he just doesn't see them coming at all.

I have to say I find it amusing all the criticism Georges is getting for not finishing this fight, especially in light of this injury. There's no doubt he wanted a knockout and was looking for it with overhand rights and the headkick. He did manage to stagger him a few times and was doing damage early in the fight. He could have been more aggressive in following Jake to the floor to finish, but he's not dumb. Bear in mind, you're talking about a guy that a fresh, first round Dan Henderson couldn't finish after landing his patented right hand pretty flush.

I recall him saying the vision got worse gradually. Now they're saying it will take days to return. So that poke in the 2nd may have been start of it. But it may have been further injured by a knuckle in the 3rd. It was after that round GSP brought it up and was clear agitated. Then again, they didn't show his film his corner after the 2nd. They guy has been unlucky in the champion rounds, that's for sure.
