So if a "UFC employee came over" and decided to allow GSP to be 5 or 10 lbs over weight NSAC would let it fly..... seems legit
People need to stop justifying the fact that there was blatant favoritism and that it takes away from the integrity of the sport.
Not all Athletic Commissions use the same standards and rules. This is especially true when you factor in different countries. The UFC employee was making sure Diaz knew the rules in Montreal. It is evident that he didn't. Most fans didn't know them either it seems.
There is no justifying here, there is just common sense.
