Makes the ufc look bad for sure. At least they made it the same for both fighters, but still, a tweak like that right before the fight, even if done with good intentions, they have to know that smacks of favoritism.

How? By ensuring by fighters are treated the same and by doing so not protecting their golden boy's title? If they had let it become non-title it would have saved them a lot of potential headaches. People who are saying that this is shady or a sign of corruption need to take a step back and think things through.

Obvious No Contest, Diaz should get an immediate rematch, this is obvious the ONLY reason Nick did not knock George out.. more freakin wolf tickets!!!!

SO EVIL!!! They totally screwed everyone over with this! It's all a big corrupt conspiracy!!!


Seriously, the amount of money on the line, they needed to make a tiny change to make sure this was still a title fight. They let both fighters use it, it's not like they only told GSP. This is nothing compared to the potential fallout if GSP had not made weight, or if ANY champion doesn't make weight.

Did this guy actually say "off the record"? Doesn't that phrase usually only apply to journalists?

I'm surprised he didn't mind the filming.
Yes he said " kinda off the record thing"

They made up for it (assuming GSP was actually 0.9lbs over 170, and Diaz wasn't, and I don't know of any info that makes that claim) buy not disqualifying Diaz's ass when he took dirty shots after the bell ... twice!!

If anything makes the UFC look bad is not kicking someone who would pull that shite out of the company the second the match ended, or at the very least taking points away.

Eh, I see a whole lots of 'ifs' in that article - if St. Pierre was sick and if St. Pierre was injured. I'm not about to get into a whirlwind of speculation when all we have is a deleted video and a vague article.

Personally, I don't see why Diaz's camp would be upset about this. Would they rather Diaz not have had his title match? Seems like sour grapes from a camp now trying to stir up trouble because Nick lost in embarrassing fashion. I like Diaz, and I hope he sticks around, but again... would they have cared so much about that extra hour if it meant Nick fighting for the title and Nick subsequently won? I doubt it.

I have to admit I'm not sure what to think of this. Thiago Alves came into a fight .5 pound overweight and they still took 20% out of his purse.

Diaz should get 20% of Georges purse.
