I'll give Diaz a break in so far as complaining publicly and/or making this video and releasing it.

Someone made the video but we don't know that it was Diaz or one of his camp, and while he did complain about it in the video, I don't think he's made any big deal out of it outside of that video.

The issue here is the rules, and if they were followed properly.

The evidence so far seems to consistently suggest that this is how the Quebec commission regulates the weigh ins, and they've done it consistently, and fairly (although they are not using the exact same rules as the US commissions, but if anyone had bothered to look, the commissions around the world can, and do, use some very different rules, including weight classes, although usually they change many of the big differences to conform more to the UFC rules when UFC fights come to town) .... although Diaz and his camp didn't seem to be aware of the differences.
