Last minute notice from the UFC to Nick that there is allowance to .9lb's overweight for the title fight when there is normally no overweight allowed. As far as I know, both guys made 170. Diaz camp was suggesting that St. Pierre could be overweight. Since we know Georges got sick, this is an interesting theory. I love how the guy mentioned that it was off the record and now it's up on youtube though lol.

That dude probably had no idea he was being video taped. 

 

that is some shady shit right there. Wonder if anyone got a photo/vid of the actual scale when GSP was on it.

not likely.

It's somewhat shady, but if it's allowed for both guys then what's the big problem?

I mean, if St.Pierre was off weight it's not like he would have forfeited the title to Diaz. The title just wouldn't be on the line as far as I know.

Seems like this rule change would have helped Diaz more than hurt him.

Porkchop - Just noticed another thread about this. Mods please delete.
Why would the mods delete this? Is it true and you don't want ppl knowing? Or is this complete bull shit? I'm genuinely curious as this if the first I heard of this. I also tried to click the link to the vid and it didn't work, so I'm more inclined to believe its bull shit Phone Post

I don't want people knowing, that's why I made a thread about it.

Kidding.

Nah I just hate it when people flood the UG with copies of the same thread.

The video should be working too. Not sure why it isn't for you.

After watching what I think trench coat dude was saying was if they were under 171 but over the 170 mark they would just announce it as 170 so fans and everyone else wouldn't be freaking out for the next hour trying to figure out if the card was gonna disintegrate in front of them.. That's why he said they were gonna say 170 and give them an hour after to cut the weight.. What they've done in the past for non titles is give the option to try and cut the extra weight in an hour or give up 20% of the purse. Being a title fight with obviously alot more rising on it they didn't want panic so they were telling him basically be cool and don't act a fool if he's .5 over and calling it out, and just allow him to cut it without a scene Phone Post

Some people are saying that the Quebec commission has always allowed for one pound over weight in title fights.

I never knew this, but I guess I never had any reason to. No one has ever brought it up that I've noticed.

It has been brought up on this forum before, as well as the fact that fighters have to make weight the first time (no extra hour to cut).

Not really , making weight is not the issue. The issue is was the commission bending rules for GSP's benefit and what other rules are they going to bend if that is the case. Phone Post
