he needs to be put away for a year….

Bullshit excuse! By now him and his trainers should know how to make weight properly. I can’t believe he even has the nerve to blame his doctor or trainers. I even remember him in an interview bragging about how much he knew about cutting huge amounts of weight and stuff…

Thats such a joke for an excuse. Of course there not going to say there fighter is not disciplined enough even with the bumped up weight class. Def agree needs to be put away for a year to learn a much needed lesson. This isnt the WWE there specific weight classes for a reason

So by the timeline the manager mentions, Johnson sees the doctor approximately 2 hours before weigh-ins because it took an hour for him to feel better, which put it an hour before weigh-ins. What were they doing all day up until that point? And if they only had a few hours before weigh-in you would think that Anthony would have told the doctor that he will hold off drinking until after the weigh-ins. I call B.S. and I hope he makes 205 and Vitor cleans his clock.

Chuck Norris never missed weight.

dankarelli Says, in 1-14-2012 at 10:32:06 from    

he was sick because he is too big to be cutting – apparently even to make 185. so “he’s sick” is because his kidneys are over worked from trying to cut weight, NOT because he “caught a flu virus” or something like that. BIG difference.

I’d rather fight a guy jacked up on steroids but is MY WEIGHT CLASS than a guy who cuts down this much, and then becomes a BEAST during our fight outweighing me by 20+ lbs.

it’s so funny how somethings are accepted and others are not. UFC needs smaller weight class gaps.

Why doesn’t AJ fight at light-heavyweight??? Or even heavyweight???

He must have the same trainer as Cyborg:)

its time to put in a 195 division for
the likes of phenom rich and axe murderer etc,,
move the 205 to 215 for fedor and co.

This sounds like a testosterone therapy excuse. I am sure every medical marijuana card holder is sick too.

JoeDog Says, in 1-14-2012 at 13:07:57 from    

I hope Vitor thumps the chump. Johnson post-fight weight, less the blood loss, 185#.

bobbo Says, in 1-14-2012 at 15:08:53 from    

Make him fight at 205 for 3 fights. If he makes weight for 3 fights at LHW then he can have the chance again to fight at 185.

Chuck Norris would KO Rumble :) at any weight :)

shocktime Says, in 1-14-2012 at 15:22:35 from    

12 lbs is ridiculous, but these guys do cut an insane amount of weight. I could see him feeling sick and hella crappy from being dehydrated, but its your job. Time for him to move up to Light Heavy then.

Rocco55 Says, in 1-14-2012 at 16:15:43 from    

Johnson’s manager is flat out lying.

bob Says, in 1-14-2012 at 17:00:59 from    

NOT MAKING WEIGHT = Cheating; other guy is more tired, has less strength; has to spend more time cutting weight and not training.


Flyingkick Says, in 1-14-2012 at 17:01:25 from    

12 lbs overweight….damn son! what chu eating?

murell Says, in 1-14-2012 at 17:27:41 from    

I think they should make all fighter’s weigh in on fight day,i think it’s B.S that alot of fighters show up fight day and are 15 to 20 lbs heavier than their weigh in weight, if your a 205er then fight at 205,if your a 185er fight at 185,it’s not fair to guy’s that are true to there weight.

king mo did an interview about this and it was real insightful

Vin Says, in 1-14-2012 at 20:00:10 from    

Chuck Norris controls the scales with his mind and can weigh whatever he F#@king wants.

wellerjohn Says, in 1-14-2012 at 22:39:01 from    

Why the hell do they need to make weight the day before? One of the stupidest things in the sport, they should weight in a few hours before the fight. That way the will fight mostly at there real wieght.

sh!t happens

donkeyboner Says, in 1-16-2012 at 02:23:00 from    

may not be an excuse he could be diabetic or something…..who knows. but this isn’t the first time he’s had this problem. when I lose too much weight I feel pretty bad, almost like a real bad hangover. diabetes runs in my family so I can get to feeling realy bad sometimes. some fluids and junk food and I feel like a new man…..

you suck Says, in 1-16-2012 at 07:07:19 from    

Coming from a state champion high school wrestle who dropped from 175 to 157 senior yr. ELVIS IS RIGHT!! s*** happens! Weighing in at 191 Morning of is solid. Any UFC wrestle will state if you 5 ibs of the day of our in great shape.
