Cuts from 165. I agree with some of the posters, worse possible thing was to have to wait 4 weeks to fight and maintain that type of weight. I doubt you'll see an explosive version of her.

Whoever fights last from the first round is always screwed. They end up taking the 2nd fight on 7-10 days rest. Last season that happened to Jimmy Quinlan and Hester. Quinlan takes about 40 elbows to the head and then fights again in 7-10 days. Yet, had it been a normal fight, would have had a 4 week medical suspension or similar. Fighting the 1st-2nd fight is crucial to winning the show IMO.

That is a really great point that gets forgotten
Great post

I met her after the show, she had a black eye. Other than that she was huge. We were at a Jiu Jitsu tourney and I was watching 15xlb women weigh in and they looked 2-3 weight classes smaller than her.

I actually didn't think anything of it because she's always been tall and big, just that she looked way more jacked than I had ever seen. It wasn't untill my teammate who competes at about 135 said something that I thought holy crap she's like twice his size and she competes at his weight.

Legit I'm about 195 lbs and from looking at her, I think she'd be difficult to grapple with.

Fucking Bollinger.

At least the producers have been honest this whole time, dude been scarving down food every episode.
