I hate to agree but everything I have seen is heading that way.

I am actually disgusted reading this, it goes to show you they have their favorites and GSP is one of them! I am sick of the special treatment GSP is getting, and how this is acceptable is beyond me. I look forward to Hendricks KO'ing his a$$!

Think about it from Nicks point of view.

He was suspended for a year for having trace amounts of marijuana in his system.

GSP and Nick both signed a contract stating 170 was the maximum weight allowance. Then Nick was told that decimals don't count and that they could weigh up to 170.9 lbs. Nick doesn't cut much weight. This "rule" benefitted GSP much more than Nick and wasn't a real rule so... why was it enforced?

If having trace amounts of weed in your system is an unfair advantage then weighing an extra 0.9lbs should be as well.

Not only is the athletic commission being corrupt and bending their rules, but Zuffa is ignoring it too, and acting like it shouldn't matter. Why are they protecting the athletic commission which is choosing what "rules" to enforce and when?

The fact that this same athletic commission won't allow Bellator into Quebec because their cage is "too big", should raise some red flags. Why would the Quebec athletic commission oppose Bellator coming to Quebec? Only reason I can think of is that they're protecting the interests of the UFC. How else do you explain it?

Diaz is probably pissed at missing that extra 20% of GSPs purse.

Let me break this all down for you fellow CHAELgrounders....

.9 = the chance Nick has to win a case in court
.9 = the chance Nick actually knows what a decimal is
.9 = the amount of weight "Safe" actually cuts before a fight
.9 = the amount that "Safe" Pierre tries to win and finish a "FIGHT"

I honestly just don't care and by all accounts I should, he does have a valid point. BUT, Diaz hasn't won a fight in two years and all this crap is just him trying to leverage a rematch. The same way he used running his mouth to get a title shot he didn't deserve in the first place.

The man is a habitual offender of violating contractual obligations and now he's captain by the book, mr. rule enforcer. He can't take a loss like a professional, but that doesn't surprise me as he always fails to conduct himself as a professional.

For someone who throws punches after the bell, looks to scrap it out in the hospital, instigates brawls post fight, fails multiple drug tests, uses profanity/ obscene gestures to disrespect every opponent, and portrays himself as the thug of MMA he certainly looks like a hypocrite.

Mr. Diaz I just don't care.

For the less mathematically inclined a .9 chance = 90%

Great fail though

weed is considered an illegal substance, not a PED

if he did in fact miss weight then it should be turned to a no contest but we still need to hear from GSP and have more info released.

oddly i still dont really care. Diaz always cries after his losses. i mean this was his moment; for the 1st time ever we saw GSP tired and couldn't get the take down at will. diaz was even able to hold GSP on the cage and after all the talk diaz did, he goes loses both the championship rounds. but i dont really care about a rematch, the same thing will happen and diaz will again bitch about not having the right sleep, training partners, or not enough ppl saying he can do it. he has cried wolf too many times for me to care.

But Like i said before it should be turned into a no contest IF he did in fact miss weight.

you do realize every sport shows favoritism to their stars, I mean the NFL has put in rule changes to make sure QBs are left alone. NBA has made the refs call more fouls to help their superstars. yes if he did in fact miss weight then it is fucked up and should be a no contest but it is nonsense to think they will stop showing favoritism to guys who make the millions. there is a reason certain events sell better then others, because people either like rooting for Goliath or rooting to see him fall.
