Is it possible for a fighter to purposely not make weight just to ensure a size advantage?Couldnt they just make the 20% difference there giving up from the win bonus?I know the other fighter has the option of turning the fight down, but is that really realistic considering there giving up a big payday ( to them at least) and the added pressure of Dana breathing down your neck?In no way am I impyling Efrain is doing this, but I was just curious when I see this situation come up constantly

 I am interested as to why Efrain missed weight. I don't think he ever has before, ad 4 pounds is a lot. I wonder if he has an injury or is sick. There has to be some kind of explanation

Ya, Tibau/Miller is a really good fight. Miller has won 4 in a row and Tibau would be on a 5 fight win streak if not for the Guillard robbery.
