You lost because you couldnt handle GSP's 'riddum' Nick, get over it.
If Nick was really that worried about 0.9 lbs than well, he couldve eaten a burrito and be at GSPs alleged level whatever that may be. Its not like this alleged loophole was to only cover GSP, it was also offered to Nick. I really really think this is just grasping at straws here, I cant see anything substantial coming out of this. Though if GSP filed complaints about Diaz stemming from the fight he would have had much better cases for them, but he didnt, because GSP is the bigger and better man than whiny Nick who turns off his outlaw persona and now tries to play by the rules to justify his losses. Whos to say that GSP also did not know about this 0.9 thing? He could may very well be on the same boat as Nick.

This isint like BJ Penn's greasing accusations towards GSP, at least that one actually had circumstantial evidence, that was legit and did hurt GSPs image. This is just pure accusations, and normally that wont fly in any courtroom. And say that the QAC was wrong about their rules, why does GSP have to take the fall for any wrong doing? Nick is just trying to get a rematch thats all, this is probably the only way he might ever get one.

Theirs my say on this situation. If you want to accuse someone of something, just make sure you can back it up with something other than assumptions that Canada and a Canadian mustve conspired with each other.

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.

The 'Canadian rules' chatter does need to stop. When we're talking about a bout in America, we never refer to them as 'American rules', and if we did, I'm certain one of the Yanks would be quick to remind us that rules in America are regional. Quebec of all places does not represent Canada, and I'm certain that Ontario, BC, Alberta, and so forth each have their own guidelines where the decimal point exception likely doesn't exist.

These are Quebec's rules, you uneducated pillocks. Quebec's rules.

It's not only the commission that is in the wrong here.
The UFC knew about this yet they've only told about it to Nick 1 hour before the weight in, which is pretty pointless cause he surely was on point at the time, thus giving GSP an extra, maybe insignificant advantage, yet an advantage.

But how do we know there was any actual advantage given? As you said, this video was taken an hour prior to weigh-ins. How can anyone here conclude that GSP didn't make 170 come the actual weigh-in? For all we know, the UFC was worried that GSP might not make weight, issued this statement to Diaz's camp, only for St. Pierre to come in at 170 regardless. The amount of people here assuming that GSP came in at 170.9 when no evidence points to it is astounding. As I said previously, we certainly don't seem to have many lawyers here.

Was UFC in the wrong for allowing this exception? Is there a fishy loophole in the Quebec Commission's guidelines? Both may very well be. But was this 'allowance' ultimately taken advantage of? None of us has any clue.

Why wouldn't GSP come at 170.9 or whatever if he knew in advance that he could?
