I just checked GSP’s gloves and the wrap looked shady…now commission won’t let me back. Been trying to for the past 30 minutes…. Not saying he’s cheating but wtf?!
Shortly after posting the above thread on the Underground, Jake Shields was spotted cage side bringing the matter to the attention of the UFC President Dana White. White and Shields spoke, then Shields returned to the back room accompanied by UFC legal counsel Michael Mersch. No other information is currently available, but it would seem as the fight took place, any dispute was resolved.
