Yeah you could tell that he would get cut when Dana said at the press conference something like that if you agree to take a fight then you should be able to make weight. If you can't make weight, don't take the fight.

Unreal. Exciting fighter too, I thought he gave Swick hell up until the stoppage.

He can always fight in Bellator and other smaller orgs then get back into the UFC if he improves.

they gave him a catchweight fight at 175 because of the short notice and he agreed to it and still missed weight. 

I dont wanna see him go because he's one of the guys who actually fights win or lose... maybe after a couple wins in smaller shows he comes back.

More like hyperbole...

Hyperbole (is the use of exaggeration as a rhetorical device or figure of speech)

Hyperboles are exaggerations to create emphasis or effect.

No sorry my friend, a metric ton is approximately seven imperial pounds.

He took the fight on super short notice. He'd only missed weight one other time and was only over by a pound then.

 

BTW LOL @ the clowns who were claiming that Zuffa does solids for EVERYBODY who steps up.

 

As per usual, management are the only ones who get to be "business men."

Seems harsh, Johnson put up a solid show against Swick and took the 2nd fight on short notice. If I was a fighter I would certainly think twice about taking on anything on short notice. Phone Post

Well said Calo. This is possibly the most unjust cut in UFC history. He takes a short notice fight to help these guy out and gets cut when he loses? I really can't believe, not even from these people. He is always in entertaining fights too.

These UFC people are backstabbers.

Never take a fight under less than optimum circumstances.

Jon Jones has a lot to teach the other guys in this regard.

"he took the fight on short notice but he doesn't get a free loss because of it."

 

According to the Zuffa zombies, if you step up, you get taken care of no matter what.
