At least Khabib's girlfriend won't have to worry about getting pregnant since he always pulls out.

Card - Ariel said a source is that he's still at the hospital.

he received an IV, no way a fighter is going to fight after receiving an IV.

"He's fought once in eight years," McGregor said "He ain't fight too frequent for my liking. For me to commit to something like that, I need to see solid proof that people are gonna show up and he's a consistent pull-out merchant... I need to see active. I need to see activity. I need to see consistency. I need to see me. If you want me to come and change your life, if you want me to come pick you, you better have some damn reasons for me to do that."

if he's still at the hospital, there's basically no chance he makes this weight window

I was really looking forward to Tony ending the hype train, what a disappointment

Imagine if both Khabib and Overroid don't weigh in.... I'd hate to be one of the people that bought tickets to this event...

I dont understand how fighters miss weight.  I mean, I know big cuts are tough, but doesnt a fighter have at least, in general, 3-4 months notice that they have to fight?  Could you not just start the weight loss process and clean up your diet when you get the contract signed so you arent scrambling to cut 10 lbs in a day at the end?

Would it kill the UFC to have the weigh in on Thursday nights?

Also, ANY chance of a replacement fighter (i.e. Conor) at this stage?

Do you even Trane?!  Thats the dumbest idea ive ever hear.  

You eat fried eggs and french fries until thursday then just suck it up and cut the weight.  Like  a professional.

Because its a game to cut to a weight massively lower than their normal weight to give them an advantage on fight night

Vanatta's coach:

If Khabib can't make it to weigh in's, I know a lightweight that would love a rematch against Ferguson. ??

And if this was complications from a band weight cut and he doesn't refuse the dr, he has a liter of fluid flowing. 2.2lbs right there.

he received an IV, he's done

If he can still make weight, and the UFC docs allowed the IV, he can still fight.  Same thing just happened to Uncle Creepy.  He talks about allowed IV ussage on Rogan's podcast. 

i guess, Jeff is writing his TUE right now, he
