F*ck that cheating piece of sh*t what’s that like 4 or 5 missed weigh ins suspend his a** for a year i bet he makes weight then

AJ was supposed to be under 205 at noon. I think this was a few hours after that. Anyway, 211.6 in a 185 fight is a bit much, isn’t it?
He should keep his weight around 200 to fight at 185. Belfort is at 205 and he had a hell of a hard time cutting down.

Weight classes are kinda a joke. Anderson now and rich Franklin in past cut from 215. GSP cuts from 195 matt hughes 200. Tito cuts from 240 forest 235. So 155′s cut from 190. if vitor and johnson just fought at 205 this could have all been avoided. Rich didn’t want to fight at 205 because of guys like forest and tito. Make a 205-225 should help. When you have guys cutting to make 265 it really shows how out of control things have gotten. Make guys weight in 3 hours before fight and decrease the weight cutting.

weight cutting is a joke

mmafan Says, in 1-14-2012 at 23:59:30 from    

the current weightclass system is bullshit, fighters should be forced to fight at their normal training weight. All this artificial weight cutting is bullshit and only annoys the hell out of fans like me.

I agree with Murell. I like Rumble a lot but what the F***, he was way off this entire time.

If nother else, Dana should cut his purse DRASTICALLY. At least they allowed the fight to go on.

LOL and some losers have the balls to call Fedor a fake and overrated. The guy is a fat 230 lb and he is 5’11″ and he beats the s*** out of guys basically two weight classes above him for a decade. get a clue

BigPappa Says, in 1-15-2012 at 05:24:22 from    

cutting weight is 100% important. It is one of the reasons fighting sports (including boxing) is regulated.

“””the current weightclass system is bullshit, fighters should be forced to fight at their normal training weight. All this artificial weight cutting is bullshit and only annoys the hell out of fans like me.””” <— man I fully agree with your words, well put indeed ;-)

anthony johnson walks around a 225-230, man up and fight at 205, but he knows he will be slapped around at that weight.

you suck Says, in 1-15-2012 at 09:51:13 from    

Guys saying that you should fight at there natural weights are idiots.

gphilos Says, in 1-15-2012 at 14:51:21 from    

man these idiots complaining about weight cutters. Its not easy and if they can they deserve to. Rumble is just an idiot example of trying to fight smaller fighters and try to add extra weight lay and pray on them (read worried about Vitor). But this is a sport and everyone weight cuts as in wrestling, why do you think the early buyout of the UFC by the Fertitas installed a bunch of the wrestler protection rules. It was for more than just to protect fighters, it was aimed at protecting and promoting a certain segment of the game in order to get it successful in AMURRICA. Obviously americans do well in and love wrestling and for the sport to be where it is it had to go through the titos, koschecks, the hughes, etc to get the most important marketing base at the time, Rassslin’

Who are you people? Complaining about weight gain after official weigh ins…are you serious? Go back to watching tennis or something…then you’ll have nothing to complain about when it comes to weight classes. I agree…complete idiots.

Just as a reminder, MMA is a combat sport. Sack up and shut up.

ginko biloba Says, in 1-16-2012 at 12:52:03 from    

jamon99 and you suck are right…why have weight classes at all? forgot p4p, who is the best.

Lodovik Says, in 1-17-2012 at 16:26:57 from    

I agree with weight-cutting being a bullshit. What is the added value of that? The fighters are still about the same weight anyway, for instance most middleweights are at around 203. If the weigh-ins were on the fight day, it would not change the divisions much. On the other hand, we would never see a guy fade away halfway through round one, cause he had a bad weight cut. Every rule should have a reason. What is this rule good for? Please give me a serious answer, you can even call me idiot, but please include some answer as well.
