Most people were expecting a blowout, so naturally, a lot were disappointed with Georges St. Pierre's UFC 129 performance as we wasn't able to dispatch Jake Shields after five rounds of action. He won a decision and gave credit to his opponent, but the reason for GSP's poor showing was only revealed during Joe Rogan's post-fight interview with him. The champion was seen wincing in between rounds, but after the fight, St. Pierre mentioned that he couldn't see out of his left eye since the second round.

After the match, St. Pierre went to the Hospital to get his eye checked. He gave an update from his twitter account:

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]... Thanks for your support!!

A few hours after he fought, he still couldn't see out of his eye. This would normally be a concern, but since doctors said he'll be fine, hopefully that means that there will be no permanent damage. Here's to hoping for a speedy recovery.
