GSP just said on Sportsnet that he weighed184 lbs at the moment and would only have 14 lbs to cut.

That's unusually light for GSP, isn't it?

I now realize that this was earlier today, so it's probably been posted already.  I apologize.  Mods feel free to kill this.

Can you imagine if Carlos or GSP show up 171lbs?

Championship belts on hold for no fucking reason.

Yeah, that would be horrible.  I don't think either man has ever missed weight before, though.  I doubt we'll see that.

When does he start losing weight and what does he expect to weigh on fight night though? I find it odd that GSP would be 10 pounds lighter than he used to be. Phone Post

Carlos also was interviewed on sportsnet. Said his cut is going harder than normal due to putting on more muscle in training. Can't recall if he gave his weight tho. Phone Post

Of course, that's why I said "can you imagine."

Can you imagine, FT? Can you?

I could be wrong.. but..

If Carlos showed up at 171 or higher, and GSP agreed to take the fight anyway and won, then he would remain champ and the interim belt would be removed...

I don;t think he would work the other way around though. For all intents and purposes, now that GSP is back the interim belt means nothing.

He's most likely already in the middle of his cut. Anderson was 191 on the Wednesday before the Okami fight and no one seems to believe he was that light on fight night. 

Fighters on the ring weight thread generally seemed to agree that Sunday was about the last time they were as heavy as they would be on fight night.

Of course, it's also possible he is coming in lighter.

Not that it ever meant much in the first place.  In a case like this, an interim title (and an undefended one at that) is just a belt for the #1 challenger.

GSP was probably 666 pounds before he started cutting.

He is the BEAST.

legkicktothehead - "Anderson was 191 on the Wednesday before the Okami fight "

I don't buy that at all

Okami told Dana in the UFC 134 vlog that he was at 195lbs the same day.

It's believable.

I believe the cut is a week long process.  I could be wrong, but I think he means he will start wringing himself out tomorrow.

Anderson is on video on the scale weighing 191 on that day...

Okami was 195 on Thursday in Dana's vlog.

Ah, I don't remember that vlog very well, other than their weights. 

Either way, there's your proof, legkicktothehead. Youtube the vlog.

Don't care if it can therotically be believable

I want proof. Anderson walks around heavy and IS A VERY big guy.

He "walks around" fat and really isn't a big mw at all Phone Post

"Anderson walks around heavy and IS A VERY big guy."

 

But Okami isn't? Why on earth would you believe Okami could be 195 the day before weighin but Anderson couldn't be 191 two days before?
