I'm all for discussing Montreal's quirky rules and whether UFC tried to pull a fast one. But this thread has clearly headed the direction of 'GSP weighed heavy,' an accusation we have not one shred of evidence to support.
I don't much about Montreal's rules, but I do know that the articles and video have been pulled. I think it's reasonable to assume that if this was the normal practice in Montreal, a statement to that effect would have been made, instead of an attempt to silence criticism.
