Hopefully the bout still happens, Whittaker now has nothing to lose and there's good money to be made.

In spite of being currently mad at him, I would watch Yoel at 205.

Well my streak of every main event of every card I've gone to has been screwed up in someway continues.
This will make 3 cards and I can't wait to see how UFC 226 will get changed.


Still pumped for the card. Rest of it is still amazing.

Bad luck for him that Illinois is using a 0.2 electronic scale. In states that use a mechanical scale or that use a 0.5 scale, they would have rounded down and certified his weight at 185.

Romero is a huge r-word and I will say that behind his back from the safety of a computer screen

Its supposed to be dead on for any title fight regardless of commission, isn't it? I know Nick Diaz tried to make a stink that they rounded down GSP's weight in Montreal for their fight but now that I write that out I realize it has little bearing on reality.

Even if Yoel wins Bobby Knuckles gets another six months to train while Yoel gets older and fatter for the rematch.

I don't think Yoel is getting another title shot after these two misses.

Yes, but if you are using a scale that only displays .0 and .5, then it will probably round down.

I guess now the funniest outcome is for Yoel to win using his foundation of egregious cheating.

I mean regardless of Yoel missing this is still a pretty sick card.

Nah just that modern medicine has gotten us to the point a fighter can weigh in over 20% less than he actually fights at, which has caused this arms race of dudes trying to get into lighter and lighter weight classes for their frames since it's a huge advantage.

Like he didn't fail to make 185 because he was fat or lazy, he failed because he had no business trying to force himself down that low

Well yeah that's why I said it's an arms race

As long as your opponent can do it you would be stupid not to also do it.

Bobby Knuckles, the reigning champ, could fight at 170 but would rather have next to no cut to fight at 185.

Didn't the same thing happen in New York recently? The doctor's were fine with the cut but commission overruled them. Which I don't understand why in a medical situation the doctor doesn't have say on it.

This particular instance sounds like the AC doctor said to halt the cut while Romero's doctor said everything was fine.
