9 weeks aren't enough (they have to set up a training camp, it's not like they start the moment they know the fight is up) but this isn't a huge issue.
The real problem is his knee...

Only thing that will be stacked against DC imo is the knee injury, which hopefully has no effect on the fight, I'm honestly surprised he didn't get surgery by now, would have though he would have gone through with it when he heard the Jones vs Gus rematch was official. Maybe it is meant to be, maybe he will claim that title, I hope so!

Just to be clear, 3 months for all the preparation, actual training camp is about 2.

no he doesn't, demian mia had the deck stacked against him, chris cariaso has the deck stacked against him, dc is cleared to fight and has ample time to prepare.

Id be curious what DC's weight is atm.
I doubt he'd be doing a lot of cardio when his knee was cooked.

Per DC he had 6 donuts and woke up at 6:45am to weigh himself when he got the call. So maybe not the best.
