UFC Welterweight champion Georges St. Pierre told the French language Canadian newspaper La Presse that he believes he weighed in at 170.4 pounds before his UFC 158 title fight with Nick Diaz. Normally the limit is 170 pounds even.

I don't think it's anything to worry about. The shorts weigh more than .4.

Sounds like Gsp is trying to say he missed weight and it doesnt matter. Regardless of how much he is over, he missed weight. But as we all know, nothing will come out of thia, because its Gsp!

If there's an issue, it's one with the commission, not Georges. If the commission tells him they round the numbers, how does that fall on his shoulders. Even if they didn't, I'm sure he could've just taken his shorts off and called it a day. I don't understand pointing the finger at him here.

I was pretty much just stating the obvious, I didnt know you needed me to spell it out with all my recent posts about GSP.
You are correct though, the Quebec athletic commission should be at fault!
