Oh Eddie,

I don't think it's bending the rules, but you have to admit that it's stretching them pretty good. Or, at the least, making the most of them.

Good strategy...

I read like a demon.

OK, I did sort of have an idea what it was going to be about.

 I don't care, was looking for an excuse to join this thread early myself (why, I don't know)

Might as well let the Aoki tights in. Joe has a point. It helps grip on sub attempts. Phone Post

 I personally think that guys should be able to wear pants like Aoki does. If it means there is a chance for more submissions, I'm for it. Would you rather see a fight end with a submission or a decision? I really don't understand what the big deal is with George wearing what he wears. Joe needs to be more concerned how he is going to beat George, not what is underneath his shorts.

when Josh Thomson fought in Cali (i think) he was told by the AC to take his knee sleeve/brace off when he was in the cage.

Joe was asked specifically about it in an interview, so he answered. You'd be a full retard if you thought Lauzon wasn't taking his training seriously

What's cheating more? Wearing a knee brace or taking steroids?

his camp is telling us all those braces arent for grip. so then they must be for support. if that is the case, he must have some fucked up legs, knees and ankles that he has to wear all that shit for support. im curious if he wears all that shit when hes lifting weights, or training standup, or jogging, or jumping rope. certainly those activities are very strenuous on his frail legs, so he must wear them at those times too, right? amazing hes made it so far in mma with such bad legs. gotta give him credit.

 He is getting as close to pants as possible without wearing pants.
We knows its legal, but is it dirty? Yeah.

Not showering for a week before your fight is probably legal also, is it dirty? Yes.
Putting lotion on an hour before your fight is legal, is it dirty? Yes.

See where I am going with this?

 I think it was because Josh' brace had padding.

You have only one body in your life, might as well protect it as much as possible. Not saying that this is WHY he wears the gear but I would personally like to see more athletes taking care/protecting of their bodies. It is what keeps them fighting, and fans paying to see them.
Some NFL players wear hard joint braces on gameday. Why is it weird for a professional fighter to have a simple support brace?
