October 21, 2011   ·   0 Comments

Returning UFC welterweight contender Nick Diaz will get his UFC 137 main event after all, as UFC President Dana White announced via twitter Tuesday afternoon that 170-pound champion Georges St-Pierre has been forced to withdraw from his October 29th title defense against Carlos Condit due to a knee injury.


Diaz, who was originally scheduled to face GSP in the UFC 137 main event before being pulled from the bout due to two press conference no shows, will now see his three-round bout with BJ Penn elevated to the main event a week from Saturday.


“We will sit Carlos to wait for GSP,” wrote White. “It’s looking so far like he could be ready in a couple months.”


Also getting a bump in the bout order will be talented middleweight prospects Brad Tavares and Dustin Jacoby, who will now see action on UFC 137’s main card.
