Terrible reference
You completely missed the point. Walk around weight is irrelevant and Sherdog's obsession with it is stupid because some fighters let themselves go and put on fat more than other fighters. Does it not make a lot more sense to only talk about the weight fighters are when they actually fight?

Yeah, the whole Hendricks dwarfs GSP because he walks around at 220, meanwhile in the fight Hendricks is there at 5'9 with no abdominal definition and GSP is his usual shredded self.

how did u came up with him being 210? He said he started his weightcut to 170 from 210. Not his current weight.

Now, lhw Rumble probably starts at 230, ends a bit above 220, then has a much healthier cut to 205
This is most likely what he was doing. And eventually that starting weight crept up, he wasn't losing as much weight during camp (or more likely he didn't have the weight to lose, it isn't like he came into weigh-ins with a roll of fat on him) and had to dehydrate more & more weight off. He was trying to hold the same weight from when he was 20 years old.

I went from 212 to 167 in a little over a month. It felt great until I went under 175 and started to feel weak. I'm not as large as that dood so the mind boggles.

Yea, and it was probably why he missed at MW too. The guy moved up but bulked up too, and ended up with the same problem. Fortunately he seems to have it all worked out now.
