How much notice did he have?

Let's see....... UFC no-name undercard purse minus 20% probably equals $1000 or maybe $2000?

props to him for trying to make it, but 35 lbs in 10 days at 185 is near impossible, thats a 205lb dc/tito ortiz weight cut there lol

Shut up nerd. He took the fight on extremely short notice. While he might have asked for a catchweight, he could have been denied.

Yeah, I don't see Sam hiding the fact of how much he weighed when he was offered the fight.

Why should he be show cased? His last fight with Rashad was terrible.

This is probably what happened. That sucks he has to suffer for it! Well, all the more reason to stay close to fight-weight.
I hope he does well in the fight.

No need to get personal. Don't accept the fight if you can't make the weight. The cut was ridiculously ambitious. 

You've agitated my chakra but I know you speak from a good place. May you have a pleasant day. Maam.

I don’t understand how you can fight at this level and let yourself get that fat in between camps. Short notice or not, horrible for your body and probably spends most of his training camps just dieting.
