    ...the video is proof that things were shady. It's not proof that Georges knew about it, or that he participated, but things were 100% definitely shady.

To them, Georges has impeccable credibility, while Diaz is a mean-mugging fake thug who misses press conferences and smokes the devil's weed.

    I have no doubt this will be a blip on George's career and will soon be lost in the press surrounding his upcoming movie role.

    This, although I'm an avid weed smoker

    I'm less convinced "grease gate" is a thing compared to this and I'd have to seem some proof from the commission that this is any sort of cover up. - which we'll never see. I like Diaz but I'm happy to let this go given that Diaz has been reaching for excuses - unless we see some real proof.

    Proof beyond reasonable doult US laws not 100% sure how Canada laws are. If the 4 people at the weigh-ins keep there mouth shut as they are. Thinking they are guilty and proving it are two different things. Look they showed film of GSP getting rubbed with grease[ I'll call it] and what happened with that "NOTHING" Short term there is some damage long term very few will remember and many of those won't care.

    It won't impact his legacy a bit in the long run. He dominated Diaz for five rounds. It wouldn't make a difference if he was 1lb heavier. The UFC and the athletic commission come out looking a bit shady, but we all know the UFC could give a rats ass.

    Ya you guys are right. Coming back a couple hours later and reading it, I didnt want to make it sound like Diaz deserved the shot...

    Just will be shitty to see how this impacts GSP and his legacy if Diaz's complaints are found to be valid, which it is looking a good possibility.

    Unfortunately, this issue with the weigh ins has blown back in GSP's face even though he is not at fault. For GSP to avoid having this have a negative impact on his legacy, he might want to beat Diaz's ass again (this time outside of Montreal).

    I get it is not good for the sport. I get it is not good for the UFC. And I get Diaz in no way deserves a rematch... but I can see how it might be considered a smart call for GSP to give the rematch.
    I can't see how GSP/Diaz II sells well. And, in the long run, I'm not convinced that anyone cares about the Montreal commission and .9 of a possible-but-not-confirmed pound.

    I think Hendricks gives him more cash and a better legacy.

    I am not saying it is smart I was saying I could see the argument to be made.. Or at least I didnt mean for it to sound like I was supporting this idea.

    I was more thinking it would be shitty for this to follow GSP around like the grease gate incident.

    Well, actually, the champ trying to pass up the top contender to choose an opponent that poses the least amount of a threat seems to have worked well for Anderson.... I kid, I kid.
