Firas Zahabi on Weight Cut

Andy_AndersonAndy_Anderson Posts: 572Free
If not sick of this story below is the response to "weight gate" from Firas.

“GSP made weight and he had his shorts on.”

“I was told the decimal didn’t count, so we didn’t worry about it.,” Zahabi said via email earlier today. “I don’t see even .9 making a difference in a fight, so I didn’t give it any thought.”

From this it seems that he acknowledges the weight discrepancy but that this was the machinations of the Quebec Commission. Not some type of directive from GSP team.

    in other words, they knew GSP was over 170, and they knew it wouldnt matter as long as he was under 171

    That is true. Lets say GSP hypothetically made 170.9

    If he removed the shorts then there's a possibility he would of made 169

    again this is assuming he didn't make 170.0 in the first place

    I am an idiot for thinking GSP could finish the P4P GOAT Nick Diaz within 5 rounds

    He only weighs in with shorts on because the commissions force him.

    Everybody knows he wants to weigh in nekkid and about 4 beads deep in his butthole.

    and that's where Nick's argument loses weight [no pun intended] because had GSP of taken those shorts off on the scale he would of been 169

    myth busted

    the real retards are the GSP fans who think this is a vandeter against GSP by Diaz fans

    this is an issue with the Commission, it makes no difference what the fighters weight was. what matters is the way the Commission handle this and what they have said

    now please, think before you reply to my post that i have clearly stated it dosent matter what they weighed. i said that because it is probably impossible to find out because the Commission acted in a very strange manner

    this is an issue with the Commission and the UFC's response shows they are taking this very seriously

    Not entirely true.

    We need an onscreen scale to measure to weight of his shorts.

    Where is that one guy at?

    I understand this is a real issue that needs clarification from the commission. Diaz actually stumbled into a real concern in this instance. This is evidence that if you throw out enough bs and conspiracy theories your bound to hit on something. Tired of the Diaz show. Dude should have fought as if he was fighting for the championship of the world, oops he was.

    I like that TEAM RETARD pretty much fits the build.ONLY Bj Penn's team could give their team a go on the retard scale.
    we have had some real obvious jokes in this sport,Tito,BjPenn,Diaz camp and Dana White. I wish they never existed,this sport would be 500% better for it.
    It gets even better when joke number 4 Mr>White starts insulting Couture a real favorite among MMA fans.

    Gina Miesha Kyra ...yes please.

    “I was told the decimal didn’t count, so we didn’t worry about it.,” Zahabi said via email earlier today. “I don’t see even .9 making a difference in a fight, so I didn’t give it any thought.”.

    HOW COULD HE NOT give it any thought when it is a rule EVERYWHERE that if GSP comes even 0.1 over the 170lbs limit, then it isn't a title fight?
    This obviously means he knew about the 0.9 allowance in Canada way before it was disclosed to Diaz's camp.
