    Seriously people on seem to miss weight more since they have been introduced and they get a longer time to hydrate so missing weight is an even bigger advantage

    There does seem to be more misses since they changed it. Everybody thought the change was a positive one. Maybe not

    They’re just gaming the system. They accept a paycut to come in heavier.

    It gives them more time to rehydrate and recover so of course there going to try to cut that extra few pounds.

    Yeah, it was good for the fighters because of that. And more flexibility basically which leads to people stretching it and fucking up.

    For the fans, it makes no difference. That is unless these fucks just keep constantly missing weight. In which case it's terrible for the fans.

    random early week weigh ins where the fighters can't be more than 10% off of target weight and same day secondary weigh in where they can't rehydrate more than 10%(which is what they chose for Till in this situation) would solve this i'd think

    They should get fined $50k per half-pound missed and they can't fight again until it's paid in full

    Someone has stats about missing weight, to compare before and after the formula changed?

    No. Make them pay a penalty above and beyond losing ALL of your purse. The UFC doesnt pay shit, so its easy for these guys to not give a shit.
