Do they release these all the time? Really interesting.

Garbandt doesn't cut much weight at all.

DJ actually weighed more than Cejudo, despite Cejudo looking bigger.

Thiago Santos outweighed Kevin Holland by 16 and a half pounds. That's an entire weight class.

Yeah this stuff is crazy. Some guys fought an opponent in a higher weight class almost.

One thing that wasn't translated in Thiago Santos' post-fight interview: Santos said he won't stay at 185 for much longer, will move up to 205 in the near future.

Cejudo and MM weigh as much as the former 135 champ. Fold that fucking waste of a division at 125. 

Would love to see this with more big names. 

When did they actually weigh them?

Or maybe garbrandt should go down and fight for 125 lb belt, since he wont get another shot at 135 as long as tj is champ.

He could, but this just proves it’s turning into the “give everybody a belt” promotion. MM and Joe B are 5’3 midgets and gave Cruz a tough fight. Cruz is one of biggest dudes at 135. TJ got ko’d by Dodson, I just think those two weight classes are so interchangeable they should can 125 and let the chips fall where they may.

Well Cejudo was a whole pound lighter and won lol. TJ already beat Garbrandt and the person who loses title never wins the instant rematch anyway. Cub is on a losing streak. Santos beat a nobody.

Dom ever decides to get behind out from behind the desk he will take TJ again...and garbrandt will take Dom...and around around we go

This is great and I hope we get to see it more often. Boxing would often display the ring weight on the tale of the tape. I always wished UFC would do the same.

Other commissions need to follow CSAC's lead on this. Most of the fighters were well over the 10% rule the CSAC wants to implement.

This, MM is a dehydrated loser that couldn’t cut it at 135, ran through a list of nobodies and claimed a false GOAT title, only to lose to the first real challenger the division grew. 

Lmfao @ calling MM a loser. No wonder fighters never post here anymore.

Kinda bursts the bubble that MM only lost at -35 because he was undersized
