Fighters in title contention have no reason to make weight. 20% of your show money for an advantage in a fight that could determine a title shot, or interim title? When you're chasing championship money, PPV points, even moving up that stupid Reebok payscale, there is no reason to make weight. Your cut stalls two pounds shy? Fuck it, stop cutting and go whip your dehydrated opponent's ass.

Statistically, fighters that miss weight have been kicking the shit out of fighters who are on weight. Do you want to be a fucking champion? Stop cutting when you get inside two pounds, especially if it's a five-round fight. There's no penalty. It's a bigger advantage than taking your "one free eye poke" in a big fight.

I agree. You could purposely miss weight by 5 pounds, intentionally eye poke your opponent to blur his vision, groin shot him, grab the fence if in threat of a takedown. All for 20% of your purse and a few warnings. Seems ridiculous

This. There has to be much harsher penalties for missing weight. I say start with 80% of your purse going to your opponent.

Or if you’re a champion just push down on the towel to cheat and gain that advantage. Funny thing is when it’s a fighter someone likes like DC, it gets brushed under the rug and most on the OG say “big deal it was 1.2lbs it didn’t make a difference.” Fact is it does make a difference when one person has to suffer in the sauna and the other doesn’t.

Lee missed weight, DC didn’t. What kind of dumb ass point are you trying to make?

 

Lee should have been a professional and made weight, huge advantage coming in over the weight limit.

So you’re of the opinion he cut 1.2lbs in 25 seconds and the “oldest trick in the book,” as many wrestlers called it, wasn’t actually cheating?

I present you you exhibit a UG, on UGer who gives DC a pass for cheating.

KirkBJJ - 1 pound

The hardest one to cut though.

in my book Barboza was beat by a WW.

Fighters who missed weight are 10-1 in the last 11 ufc fights.

Shits ridiculous

Look at this sad bunch..smh You guys sound like some crows, on here moping about a fucking single pound, from a weight cut made the DAY BEFORE, where both guys were pretty close in weight and both had time to rehydrate for the fight the next day. We’re not talking about a 5 pound miss, not even 3 pounds! You guys are overreacting! Not even 2 pounds over. He was within 1 pound of making the limit, has never missed, and it wasn’t like he didn’t try. The guy looked ripped, he obviously put in the work. Shit happens.. It wouldn’t have made a difference in the domination we witnessed. The hypothetical woulda, coulda, shoulda regarding the headkick having played out different without the pound is wishful thinking. It would have played out different TONIGHT if Edson had used his brain. The problem wasn’t the pound, the problem tonight was Barbosa came in to wrestle after landing it! Stupid move!  

 

And regarding the guy who tried to tell only half the story regarding the guys missing weight cuts being 10-1, how about you tell us who the better fighter was in each one of those matchups, because more often than not the guy who had the better record and was expected to win won. Out of those 11 fights, how many were upsets? I’ll wait.. please list them too!

Do you think DC would have had kidney failure if he’d have tried to stop a pound earlier, and not nearly died?

Do you think Uriah Hall would have still had a seizure if he’d have stopped early, and not been rushed to the hospital and notnhad been placed inpatient?

What if they both miss weight? Weight classes are to make sure one person isn't bigger than the other, not a weight cutting contest. If they both don't make weight, both aren't drained for the fight, there would be no point in a fine and everything is even.

*He had abs and worked hard guys so following the rules doesn’t apply to him. 

 

If you cut weight you know how brutal those singular lbs can be at times especially in your mental game but as “pros” you agree to the weight.

 

LOL @ “shit happens”.  Yeah, shit does happen. Some fighters aren’t professional and their words are worth dick.

It’s funny...it always the green names and people that have competed that understand how big of a deal the extra pound can be, and know what DC did.

And it’s always the huge pussy internet warrior fake tough guys who have never been in a physical confrontation in their lives and act like it’s no big deal. You here, would be the huge pussy

Lee missed weight, DC didn’t. What kind of dumb ass point are you trying to make?

 

Lee should have been a professional and made weight, huge advantage coming in over the weight limit. 


So you’re of the opinion he cut 1.2lbs in 25 seconds and the “oldest trick in the book,” as many wrestlers called it, wasn’t actually cheating?

I present you you exhibit a UG, on UGer who gives DC a pass for cheating.

I’m of the opinion of DC made weight, Lee didn’t, and your on the UG whining like a little bitch. 

In fairness, by definition, you're both whining on the UG


How am I whining? Regarding the thread topic, I made the statement that DC cheated. That’s a fact. It isn’t debatable.


And it’s bizarre to me that some can’t bring themselves tonadmit it.

You’re whining, like a bitch 


It’s funny...it always the green names and people that have competed that understand how big of a deal the extra pound can be, and know what DC did.

And it’s always the huge pussy internet warrior fake tough guys who have never been in a physical confrontation in their lives and act like it’s no big deal. You here, would be the huge pussy

So how about that weight? Did he make weight or no? You going to answer my question or continue to whine and spit out a bunch of non sense while on your parents WiFi?

If you reread my posts you’ll see that I actually commented on what a huge advantage it is to come in over weight. I guess that fact that you get so emotional on the internet is stopping you from putting basic posts together, or you’re an idiot, or a combination of both.
