So similar to Hendricks scale when he missed. I saw they didn't fine him cause he wasn't allowed to cut the weight. Glad he was healthy going into the fight. Thx

i don't have the source but in one of those pre-fight UFC programs (like on ufc tonight or something) Brown said this was one of the first camps where he was injury free....no idea how else he could of scaled overweight.

Yeah the article says that by the time the commission realized the miscommunication (they were gonna let Brown try to make weight again) Brown had already began rehydrating and it was too late.


Shitty situation but at least it was handled the best way possible.

+1. Hoping he doesn't have to wait 6 more months for Hendricks.
