before the weighins he weighs 173.8 and says he needs to drop 2.8....guess hes an idiot like diaz too...a good question to ask is did any fighter, other than GSP, know about the no decimal thing?

I didn't watch the video yet, but isn't the rule 170.9 for normal fights and 170 on the dot for title fights? Nate had the problem when he showed up to fight Henderson and had to cut another .9, correct?

When it comes to making weight in wrestling its on the dot or your over. I wrestled 215 and I had to weight 215.0, 215.1 is greater that the maximum weight f 215. Phone Post

Gotta love how you guys are going apeshit over this .9 (allegedly) overweight thing but ignore the cheap shit Diaz was trying to do during the actual fight with the late hits.
He lost, badly, and acted like a child before, during, and after the fight. It's sad that a grown man (and his grown fans) are really whining this much about cage fighting. This is worst than Greasegate.
Oh and I'm as sick of GSP's manhugging as anyone else so don't just think I'm a fanboy defending my spandex wearing superhero. It's just a joke that people can't get over this and move on.

dude, relax and calm down...the point you arent seeing is that people arent raising this issue because they are angry nick lost. this is a completely separate issue. do you know how many media outlets have called into question and criticized how this was handled? google it. are they all butt-hurt diaz fans? no...

 

the ufc needs to make a formal statement about this and not shirk responsibility by simply passing the buck to the lame duck commission

If its no big deal then let's jump in the delorean and crank it to 88 and let Nate chill and hydrate the 2 hours he spent sweating his ass off to make weight for the Bendo fight. Phone Post

Relax and calm down? Sorry I thought my sarcasm was obvious.

All I'm saying is where is this sense of WE DEMAND JUSTICE when it comes to Nick's cheap shots? Why aren't there 10 "Should've been a DQ or point deduction" threads?

Duh, thats not clearly defined as being against the rules. His momentum carried him through his already initiated motions. For several seconds and attempted combos. Furthermore, Nick Diaz ain't no round bells bitch homie!

uhhh...try something called inference and basic math...

 

he says he weighs 173.8 and agrees he has to cut 2.8 lbs to make weight...173.8 - 2.8 = 171....

if he was aware of the fact that decimals werent counted, instead of saying he has to cut 2.8 lbs, he would say he has to cut 1.9 lbs....

Well excuse the fuck out of me for missing that point.

I'm pretty sure the whole "decibels not mattering" thing meant that even if he weighed 171.2 or anything, it would be read off as 171 anyway. Phone Post

Othello - Seems kind of suspicious to me that a pro like Hendricks wouldn't take the time to inquire about the specific rules at every event he attends. Is it a commissions responsibility to inform fighters of every rule or is it a fighters to inform themselves?

"Hey do y'all count decimals?" is not something a fighter should have to ask because it just makes sense to count them. There is an established history of fighters having to cut an extra x.y pounds and there was no publicly established history of "hey we don't count the decimal over here so don't worry"

The fighters should know, but they should NOT have to ask about "off the record" rules. They should trust the written rules the commissions make available. The written rules from Quebec say NOTHING about this special secret 'decimals don't count.....but only in the UFC....and only most of the time' rule.

It's fighters responsibility to know the written rules. Not off the record rules that contradict the written rules. Phone Post 3.0
