The problem is systematic. MMA fighters are encouraged to cut a lot of weight because their opponents do and don't want to give up a lot of size. Have many successfully wrestlers in this sport who have a background in cutting weight doesn't help the issue.

Maybe RB should go to FW now, but would someone give up a title shot in a main event slot in a weight class he has successfully fought at for years because he realizes it's no his optimal weight class? Even then might not even realize that. RBs weight cut was going as it normally does, and then his body said no an he fainted.

RB has stepped up to save cards, had 3 fights in 7 months, and always comes in and fights like a warrior for the fans. Give the man some respect and don't kick him when he's down. He wasn't the first one to have a weight cut go badly in this sport and he won't be the last.

The way fickle fans turn on fights who have given them amazing fights is appalling.

I hope Aldo doesn't show up drunk to his next tile defense.
actually it was JDS first, Silva 2nd and now Barao 3rd, next is Aldo.
