Glory 19 results: Verhoeven retains, Holzken and Schilling dominate
(bloodyelbow.com)
The big Rico Verhoeven vs. Errol Zimmerman Heavyweight title fight ended not with a bang, but a whimper. In the Glory 19 main event, Verhoeven retained his belt via injury stoppage in the 2nd round when Zimmerman threw a very out of character spinning back kick, throwing out his knee in the process. An injury is always an anti-climactic ending, but this situation was complicated by some bizarre reffing. After Zimmerman went down, referee Al Wichgers counted to 10, and Zimmerman did not make the count. At that point, he brought in the doctor, who, after some time, waved the fight off. It was a bizarre, and thoroughly confusing call, but at least Rico got the proper win.

Zahabi: GSP Ready to Resume Sparring
(espn.go.com)
Firas Zahabi, longtime head trainer to former UFC welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, still does not know whether the Canadian will ever fight again. If St-Pierre does return, however, Zahabi will have no reservations regarding his two surgically repaired knees. Nearly one year after suffering the second ACL tear of his career, St-Pierre (25-2) is training every day, according to Zahabi. Earlier this month, St-Pierre posted a video to social media that shows him somersaulting into a forward flip in a gymnastics facility. He sticks the landing, in case you're wondering. The 33-year-old Canadian tore his left ACL in March, three months after he vacated the 170-pound title to take an indefinite leave of absence. In 2011, he tore his right ACL but made a successful return with three title defenses.
