Does make sense. It was fairly obvious that GSP was struggling for weight - he was cranky, made mention of weight cutting being a pain in the ass, and then the apparent fever and injury.

This thread will perform to the same type as most others on here these days though. Diaz fans will cry foul, GSP fans will say so what ?

As a neutral, I don't really like it at all. No other fighters get given special allowances. Or do they ? Many have struggled with weight cuts for equally justifiable reasons as illness and injury. Did any of them ever recieve specialist treatment, or were they all punished ?

I'm glad the fight went ahead, but any shortcut is leading you down a very slippery slope, imo
