I guess this is how Diaz gets his rematch, the back door way. Now he needs to prove that GSP actually came over 170lbs by decimal points. Good Luck Nick.

My god, Diaz is a moron. He does realize that if GSP missed weight, their fight would've been a non-title fight, nothing more, right? There would be no vacating the title, they would fight for no title, he'd be dominated, then they'd fight at a later date for the title, where he would get completely dominated again. Diaz is a tard. It's stupid that he thinks he has any right to force GSP to vacate the title when there is nothing in the rules to say that is what happens. Plus, has Quebec, or any Canadian commission ever used the decimal at the weigh in? **** it, let them fight again, in Vegas, where the commission says you have to be exactly on weight. Diaz loses, again. Under no circumstances does Diaz do anything but get outclassed for 5 rounds.

I've looked everywhere and I can't find where it says the champ has to vacate the title if he misses weight.

Diaz should show some Shred of dignity and let go, he got dominated from bell to bell by an opponent who looked to be having an off night and fought 3 rounds exactly how Diaz wanted This was also a title fight that came gift wrapped because he had no business fighting for the title in the first place seeing as he failed to earn the shot.

Are you sure about that?

I was under the impression MMA followed the same rules as boxing: If the belt holder misses weight he has to vacate the belt. If the challenger makes weight, he can then choose whether to go ahead with the fight. If he wins, then he gets the belt. If the overweight champ wins the belt remains vacant.

Ask Chael Sonnen why he wasn't the last WEC champ after beating Fihlo

Dunno. That why I'm bringing it up. All my googling has come up with zero information. A few sources claim it follows the same procedure as boxing, but nothing definitive.

I find it absurd that a champion can come in over weight and still keep his belt. What's stopping a champ from deliberately coming in over weight if they dont fancy their chances against the challenger? They fight at catchweight and he still keeps the belt. Its madness.

Not saying this is the case with GSP. But this area does seem a little murky.

Fihlo was the WEC champ and came in grossly overweight His fight with Sonnen became a non title fight.
