Ever since Georges St-Pierre completed the third round of his UFC 100 bout and complained of a groin injury (and trainer Greg Jackson humorously told GSP to hit opponent Thiago Alves with it), message-board MDs have been diagnosing and predicting the fighter's future.

Although St. Pierre's manager, Shari Spencer, announced that no surgery will be needed, some fans still think the injury could have lasting effects.

In his latest "Ask the Doc" column, MMAjunkie.com medical columnist Dr. Johnny Benjamin discusses some typical groin injuries and why a finely tuned athlete such as St-Pierre probably doesn't have much to worry about.
