Georges St-Pierre's achilles injury deemed not serious

USA TODAY Sports

After it was reported that Georges St-Pierre beat Nick Diaz at UFC 158 with an injured achilles, there was some concern that the injury would delay his upcoming title fight against Johny Hendricks.

However, a week later, GSP's camp, through a UFC Canada official, squashed those concerns.

"GSP has done some sprint training while on holiday and is fine, despite the injury report," the official said. "Georges told [his manager Rodolphe Beaulieu] everything is OK."

No word just yet when GSP vs. Hendricks will actually happen, though. St-Pierre's long-time coach Firas Zahabi also said last week that he didn't want GSP to return to action for at least six months.

The next big hurdle for Hendricks to now overcome is St-Pierre's budding acting career. It was reported Monday by Latino Review that the UFC welterweight champion will play a villain in the upcoming "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" film, which will be released April 4, 2014. The report did not mention how long St-Pierre's shooting schedule will be.
