Snake oil salesman? Or legit? I know Johnny likes to eat that Texas BBQ, dip Grizzly, and pound some beers on the lake when he isn't fighting...but fuck...Dolce is paid to get this motherfucker to 170 at weigh-ins. Is Hendricks the first Dolce fighter to miss weight? I honestly cant remember.

LOL, my bad guys. I'm already 7 beers into the night because of these fucking conference games on TV. I wasn't trying to dog Dolce...just fucking around mostly to see what people's opinions would be.

They had a lighter scale at the weigh ins, happens all the time in high school wrestling weigh ins but i would think at this level they would check there scales to the one being used ahead of time. Phone Post 3.0

Well, his only credentials are his athletes, as he has little or no education in the field. The fact that Hendricks didn't make weight at first attempt reflects poorly on him as everytime someone questions his knowledge he points to the fact that his athletes always makes weight.

I won't call him a broscientist, but I can understand that one would. He ofte cite media articles as "science" on his podcast and sometimes makes weird statements which I think is more due to his passion about what he does more than actual lack of knowledge. He also likes to exaggerate, particularly numbers. He's done "hundreds of thousands of this" and recommends "thousands and thousands of that".

I consider him an authority on coaching with a knack for diet, but in my eyes he's not a nutritional guru by any means. He will however have a real scientist with a real knack for diet on his podcast and that will be pretty entertaining as their views differ greatly.

He's not a count calories guy. If you listen to his podcasts he (at least used to) end every one of them with "Don't count calories, make calories count." Phone Post 3.0

In UFC 171 Fight Journal: Johny Hendricks you can see part of the weight cut. Dolce explains part of the process. He also reveals his own "less than 7 percent bodyfat physique".

Losing weight isn't complicated.

He's just a brand name trying to get exposure. Wouldn't suprise me if he paid the big name fighters to tell everyone Dolce is a genius. Phone Post 3.0

In fairness his results speak better than any many 'qualifications'

That's what the 1lb discretion is for.

You are supposed to make 170lb and the 171lb limit is to account for potential scale inaccuracy.

So there's no excuse. Phone Post 3.0

The +1 lb over the limit discretion doesn't exist for title fights, however. You have to be EXACTLY on or under.
