They said 3 out of his last 5 at the weigh ins. I was getting worried about his career.

Thanks, yeah, one pound is not bad, maybe next time he'll just hit the weight. You have to wonder if he'll ever get title shot if he can't come in on weight. Don't most title shots require you hit the exact weight on 1st attempt without the 1 lb cushion?

You have to be exactly the weight, but you do have one more chance. I believe that's what happen in the Benson vs Nate fight(Nate was one pound over)
