The whole arena that night seemed to be for Holm

Can't people see Cyborg is just Solid?

Awesome. So 13-14lb heavier on fight night for a 145 fight than she was walking around at with no fight scheduled at the time she refused to fight Ronda for the title and fled the UFC entirely.

I can see why she has no many defenders, and why so many bitch about "no one wants to fight her". Ronda and Nunes and Holm are 155 or lower in fighting shape. 

Props to George Lockhart for telling it like it is; after making clear for months that getting her to make 135 would be no problem, he finally admitted the problem was not getting to that weight, but that he was tasked with doing it while still getting her to 168 in the ring: "But my goal is to get her almost back to the same weight she's competing at now, in the 145-pound division. ...Her weight really does help her style. You have a girl who weighs 168 pounds pulling down on your neck and throwing punches, that's a lot to deal with."

And? Uncle Creepy posted year around 10pm one night after he weight in 7-8 hours earlier for the DJ fight. He weighed in at 125 and that night he was 151.

He put on over 20% before he went to bed that night. I highly doubt 10-15% is out of the norm.

 I gained a lot of weight of the years too so that my daughter doesn't feel pressured to be skinny. Ronda is always concerned more about others than she is herself.

Considering how hard it is for Conor to make 145, and considering that he ate his way up to 168 for Diaz fights, it's pretty damn impressive that she can cut that much. GOAT WMMA weight cutter for sure.

Well considering there is a commission that has begun to enforce the rule that fighters must stay within 10% of their contracted weight or be forced to move up a weight class I think someone at 14% warrants some thought. 4 fighters in the UFC have already been notified that they will not be licensed since they gained 14% or more after weigh ins.

She made weight and passed the tests. No reason(imo) to give her shit at this point. I'd like to see a rematch. Mainly because I think there are only a few gals that can challenge Chris. Holly being one of them.

Wow that is impressive. The mental focus and fortitude required to pull that off is way up there relative to what others are capable of. And despite being so depleted, she shows little to no ill effects in the cage. Usually the legs and the lungs take a big hit after such big weight cuts. She appears to just shake it off and flips on the energy and cardio switch..

And considering they made the 10% rule shows many were above that, otherwise, no rule would have been needed. So like I said, I’d say 10-15%, if not more, is the norm

Ya but Conor is mentally weak. It’s why he folds the second he gets tired or punched
