Weird last I checked you’re supposed to wait for the scale to balance out. Huge conspiracy here.

 

But it won’t help him. Gaethje by KO.

Khabib made weight the same way Israel passed the roid test.

SUCH bullshit. He missed weight IMO but no way the Arab billionaires would allow this fight to not happen.

Yeah that’s a miss... wtf?? The scale shot straight up and pegged the top and the guy just nods and slides it away. Crazy.

Just remember that these officials are employed by the UFC for fights in Abu Dhabi

He made weight. Look at how slow the thing goes up from the bottom to 3/4. Been on enough scales to know it will drop a little, back to center when it settles..

 

This will be the fans next excuse. This will not be Justin's.

Maybe you are right that it would have swung back but I think it should have been allowed to run its course so as to be definitive.

It does look suspect. I have never seen a weigh in go that quicky before.

I don't think Khabib missed weight for sure... but fuck its suspect.

The bar is free standing. You can see it wobble (move up/down front/back) as the official starts to touch the weight:

weighed in heavy, bullcrap. Khabib's body language makes more sense now, he was stepping on the scale expecting to be heavy. This isn't blatant cheating like DC's 'towel of God' weigh in but total bullcrap. That last .6 of a pound is total hell if you are already drained out, that was not a legit weighin. I don't understand how an organization that claims to be bestowing world titles on human competitors cannot freaking make sure the weighins are bloody legit, even if some commision is running it. The opposing coach should be there and confirm he has not objections to the weigh in.

I don't give a fuck. 2 men are going to fight in a cage. Whoever throws better punches and employs better wrestling techniques will win.

this JG doesnt give a shit if Khabib is 15lbs over. He wants to fight. still not as bad as the DC weigh in imo

A difference seems to be official incompetence (in the DC case, not catching his trick) versus official complicity (in this case.)

For anyone who thinks that an extra pound doesn't matter, it does. It's not about being a pound heavier. It's about not having to throw the sweats on and cut that last, most miserable and draining pound.

Mike Dolce argues Khabib wasn't 155.

“Watch Gaethje, watch the difference in how he weighs in Gaethje,” said Dolce, as transcribed by Ryan Harkness for MMA Mania. “Watch the scale again, watch how it tips. It hits the top, comes back down, and [the official] pauses and then wipes it. Look at how long it takes him to decide. Comes back down, stabilizes in the middle. He even pauses still and then he wipes it and calls it. Now watch Khabib, here we go, up up up, wipes it on an upward trajectory. He’s heavy here!”

“Guys, this is incorrect. That is wrong. An error. Let’s call it a human error. Nonetheless, most likely in this moment, Khabib Nurmagomedov was not 155 pounds. He was not scratch weight. Now would he have made the weight? Sure. Let’s say he would. I’m a Khabib fan, I want this fight to happen and I don’t think Gaethje cares at all. But, at the same time, this was wrong. This was wrong, this was an error!”

My first though before I watch the vid was for OP to pull his panties out of his vagina. After watching I had to give a big WTF was that??
