GSP and Nick Diaz were contracted to compete in a MMA Contest, for the UFC 170lb limit Championship. Public opinions of either fighter's personality or professionalism should not influence these rules.

I bet he's KO'ed a few principals in his time.

If we want to talk 'principles', then how about two attempted cheap shots well after the round ended?

If we want to talk 'principles' then Diaz shouldn't have been given the title fight in the first place.

If we want to talk principles, how about we provide some evidence that GSP was actually 0.9 lbs over-weight and Diaz wasn't.

Well, if it was so easy for you to notice the pattern, why couldn't a "professional" fighter like Nick see the same pattern? and I don't know, maybe make some kind of adjustment??? Maybe try to mix things up and Not allow himself to be "Jabbed, Jabbed and Taken Down"

If it's so obvious and so repetitive , then any true Martial Artist should be able to anticipate it and avoid it and have their way. Did Nick do that? Nope. Who's fault is that??

This is a childish post from a GSP fan.

Yea, everyone is crying....not really. No one said it would of made a difference, don't get you girly panties in a bunch.

Point is, why did this happen? Is it standard practice in Montreal? If so why did they come up to Nick an hour before to let him know this? If it isn't, why was it allowed for a title fight? Why aren't other fighters given this leeway?

You come off as the type to never question anything. If you don't question, nothing improves. Lies are told. Shady things happen.

I have never seen or heard of a title fight allowing a fighter to come in at 170.9 and it be "good enough". People cry for legitimacy in the sport. Cry over who gets title shots. Then lets all cry over rule interpretations.

No one is sitting here crying "poor Diaz". We are sitting here questioning the commission and the set of rules that are laid out that all usually are expected to abide by.

If you want to make yourself look like a fool with childish posts that are idiotic, then I guess continue.

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

According to princible and interpretations, Diaz shouldn't have even been granted a chance to fight for that title. So Tit for Tat, He didn't deserve to be there and GSP came in .9 pounds heavier. I haven't seen the video, but I also haven't heard about Diaz complaining. But, maybe that's because it requires basic math, and he got confused by a decimal number.

The bottom line is the UFC needs to decide if they are going to do things by the book, and put #1 Contenders against the champions, or are they just going to do whatever sells the most PPV's at any given moment.

If they choose the later, which the seem to be do all the time, they will never become the mainstream network sport they want to be. They will always be primarily a PPV spectacle.

Which is fine by me.

That is not the right example you are bringing, man, as 0.09 second in a sprint is already the final result.
