Creepy November 21, 2013 ur gifted a spot n the semi’s….and u cant make weight??? to fight in the final’s…wow…he chose not to make weight…like dana said…no heart…to waste a chance like that….gifted a fight…to get there…not to mention….wasting the chance at fighting in the ufc…at all after that stunt….wow… Log in to Reply jons November 21, 2013 that sucks, though it sounds like he has the right perspective on things now, i wish him well and hope he can bounce back even stronger, good lesson. Now as for cutting weight in the first place, most people who cut 10 pounds or more are often just bully’s and p***y’s and are picking on guys that are smaller than them and cant handle people their own size. Eventually somebody is gonna keel over and die from cutting to much, not to mention all the side effects, brain damage being one of them, kidney problems and more. Also the youth that r admiring these guys and gals and think its ok to drop 30 pounds…but its not ok it the biggest problem mma has i think. Log in to Reply heh November 21, 2013 You know? Log in to Reply NotVinnieJones November 22, 2013 This jons guy who posted is a douchebag. First, he wishes Gutierrez well…I say f**k him, the clown blew his chance and also took a spot on the show that could have gone to someone else way more deserving. Good riddance is more suited for the guy than “i wish him well” (shakes head). Then jons calls people who cut weight bullies and p*****s. Hey, jons, you do realize that most UFC fighters cut weight, don’t you? Oh, not to mention that its common in boxing, muay thai, wrestling, even high school wrestlers cut weight, and its been going on for ages. No, its not good for the body but to make an uninformed judgement like that about those who do it….well, just makes you sound like a tool.

You start WEAKS out from a fight and if you’re on TUF you maintain weight the ENTIRE TIME so the cut is easy and you can focus on the FIGHT. And Ronda may be a great fighter but she sucks as a leader and a coach. Throwing a party before the semi’s? She should have been on this guys ass about eating right the whole time. Weak amateur shit.

The only thing which bothered me was the fact he had the audacity to call one of the other fighters ‘the weakest link’ in the house. I did not like that at the time, i thought it was shameful and even more so now. The moral of that story is be careful what you say.

To eat whatever you want up until the day before the fight??!! It is your job to make weight, and if you can’t then you should move up a weight class.

Log in to Reply jons November 22, 2013 ok maybe im being to soft on the guy, he blew it and is paying the consequences through the humiliation and loss of his opportunity. My primary point was the weight cutting, clearly combat sport athletes have been cutting weight through the ages and it can be done safely to a point, however there are restrictions on cutting to much for amateur athletes and all im saying is that those who can’t win at their natural weight keep dropping weight until they can win and fight smaller and smaller guys, a great example of a champion fighting at natural weight is Franky Edgar. when i was a boxer (amateur) 25 years ago my coach who boxed for the great Angelo Dundee said the closer u fight to your natural weight the better, so if you work hard and diet correctly you don’t have to drop that much or at all. But I hold to the fact that most fighters who drop 30 pounds or more are p***ys and cant handle what it takes to fight at or close to there natural weight… Log in to Reply @spacedread November 23, 2013 All of you trying to get your head round the weight cutting aspect. What you don’t realise is many of the guys on the show right back to series one are only fighting at these specific weight classes to GET ON THE SHOW and use that particular opportunity to get into the UFC. So stop criticising them for fighting at the wrong weight class and calling them pusssies for not fighting at their natural weight. If you knew anything about wanting to become a professional athlete or professional anything you’d realise sometimes you have to take opportunities when they come your way such as competing on the ultimate fighter at a weight class which is not ideal for you. Log in to Reply jons November 23, 2013 hello, i said 30 or more pounds, and 10 to maybe 20 pounds would be alright i think, but 30, come on, there has to be certain limits dont you think, at least for the safety of the fighters, and all the kids watching, it sets a bad example..
