    It's literally on video and the comission had to come into the cage to intervene.

    Fedor had that rope grab in Bodog to reverse Lindland's TD.

    most fighters would qualify if you mean fouls only and not other types of cheating like PEDs. it's easier to name the ones that did. Jones, DC, Anderson* come to mind. I'm sure I'm missing some

    *I don't remember Anderson committing many fouls in general but he blatantly did in the Chael rematch.

    edit: I didn't mention Conor because the Khabib fight was ridiculous but he lost anyway.

    I meant I don't believe it was an intentional tactic on the part of GSP. Do you honestly think it made any kind of difference, especially considering the intervention?

    So if anything blame GSP's corner. I don't think it was an intentional tactic, and I'd bet my house that it didn't make a damn bit of difference. BJ got mauled.

    in my opinion the only way to blame GSP is if he was involved in deciding to do it. Which is possible but there's no reason to assume that unless someone in his camp said he was.

    Stipe has eye poked a few (and he’s been eyepoked a shit ton also)

    he’s an honorable champ

    what does it matter?

    you could say the same for everybody else

    the fact that he cheated means that he thought it would make a difference otherwise he wouldn’t do it

    so everybody who fails a drug test can’t really be blamed unless someone in their camp says they’re guilty?

    There's no evidence *he* cheated though. If anything some random corner guy decided to do something stupid. If somebody on GSP's team decided to spike BJ's water or something would you say that GSP had cheated?

    that's a poor analogy. Someone rubbing your shoulders is a lot different than you taking drugs.

    People who fail drug tests literally aren't blamed if they can prove that they ingested the substance unknowingly. In other words, they aren't considered to have cheated.

    I'll admit that I wasn't aware of this rope grab. Looks like reflexes, but still technically cheating.

    Edit: if this is the standard though good luck on finding any fighter that has never grabbed a rope, or put a finger or toe through the cage.
