It's really starting to wear on me. You can't keep having this.
I might not buy the fight just because I'm sick of this fudge.
Blaming the "UFC" is far from the logical thing to do. Let's look at the entire picture. Maybe the fact that the new weigh-in procedures/time frame along with USADA and the IV ban are playing a huge part in the recent influx of fighters missing weight. Sure we had fighters missing weight under the old rules and time but never this at this rate.
These are professional athletes who agree on a time, place and a weight to fight at. It's your job to hold up to your end of a contract. That's what being a professional athlete does. This wasn't a last second decision to take this fight. Fighters make weight safely all of the time, it's about being disciplined outside of a fight camp as well. Considering what was at stake and the amount of potential money this should of never had happened. Also trying to cut 20-25lbs. the night before/day of is never a smart play.
I'm just as bummed out as of the rest of you when a fight of this caliber gets cancelled due to negligence. To blame the UFC in all of this is the last thing anybody should be doing. Blame AKA, Ali Abdelaziz, Javier Mendez and Khabib Nurmagomedov for starters.
