Alright. No GSP bashing. Swear.
This whole "Decimal in Montreal" thing is being blown up and overlooked by Diaz fans and GSP fans respectively. And the parties are just arguing with each other just for the sake of "their fighter" or cause they dislike the other. But we need to look past the fighters, past the fight, and realize that this decimal thing is very serious, assuming that it is indeed true.
We need to come together as MMA fans and demand to know the truth behind this. We've all seen the threads that knocked boxing and how much of a joke it is. But right here, in front of our eyes, is something that looks and sounds almost exactly the same as something that might happen in boxing. We cannot go down that road. Dana White and the UFC cannot go down that road, as DW has said he would never do.
I know I'll get fake GSP fans in here saying it's just a decimal and it doesn't make a difference. As far as the actual fight went, you are right, it doesn't. Hell, Diaz could have came in 25 lbs overweight, and carried a baseball bat with him into the cage, he still might have lost. But we can't let there be a standard set, not with one of the UFC's top superstars, not with one of their champions, and not in the hometown of one of the greatest champions ever seen in their division. Bottom line is, the UFC, MMA, and the athletic commissions have to let the cards fall how they may, not try to desperately try to take control and mold the future bathed (not in grease!) in greed and corruption.
For those of you who think GSP made weight and this is a non-issue, remember two facts. GSP has been said to have weigh as much as 194 on fight night by his own trainers. Gaining a whopping 24 pounds in a single day? Is it impossible to think that he has a hard time weighing in at 170? That's just what he gained back in a single day, and I'm sure he weighs even more than that walking around. And Georges was reported to have not only injured himself before the fight (though now apparently he's okay from what was first diagnosed as a 6 month injury), but he was also said to have the flu. I'm sure having the flu alone would make cutting all that water difficult, but spraining, tweaking or injuring, whatever it was, his leg? No way.
