It doesn't matter if GSP weighed in at 170.0 or 170.9, nobody cares for that. The fact that the commission relaxed the rules is the issue here.
Exactly. F*uck the details. Forget that its GSP and Diaz for a moment. Put aside your subjective thoughts. This is some shady shit going down with little explanation.
I still find it unbelievable that a champ can come in overweight for an MMA title fight and still walk away with the belt, win or lose. Fecking ridiculous.
Nothing against GSP. From the sounds of it, hes done nothing wrong. But the rule makers are taking the piss.
In the case of Sonnen vs Fhilo... I cant fathom how a champ can come in 7 pounds over weight, lose the fight, and still have the belt. The rules need changing.
