Just a couple days ago, the UFC 158 decimal controversy seemed to hit a peak when St. Pierre apparently admitted that he had weighed in over the Welterweight limit at UFC 158. However, it looks like those reports came from a misquote by Le Presse.

Please tell me this whole ordeal isn't simply over an electronic scale that truncates.

Let me ask this: Who gives a fuck?!?! Nothing short of the hand of God was going to change the outcome of that fight...it was going to be a UD or stopped by cuts. Diaz had an extremely small chance to win and I guarantee that the 1/2 lbs made no fucking difference at all!

Weight class shmeight class. If GSP doesn't make weight it's NBD. People should just stop being babies and let GSP come in at whatever weight he feels like.

Not saying that at all, the rules are a smidge different in Canada and that difference will never change the outcome of a match between GSP and Diaz is what I mean. Diaz got the same benefit and the fight was extremely predictable. Plus no one has proven he didn't make weight. It's all just speculation and a very pointless controversy.
