I saw this on the reddit MMA page, and I have often wondered this myself - why aren't the fight night weights listed on the tale of the tape (pictured below) like they are in boxing?

It was done in the Belfort/Rumble fight as a stipulation for the fight to continue after Rumble missed weight, so why not do it every time? I know the counter-argument is that the amount of weight some of these guys cut could be off-putting to the uninitiated MMA fan, but Rogan often mentions fighters' weight cutting practices on air.

I think that this is a great idea and one that the UFC should pursue, if for no other reason than that it will settle many of the arguments I've had with some of the neckbeards on this forum.

Thank you kindly.
