    Post weigh in, says his only concern about Kevin's weigh was whether or not the fight would go on.

    Barboza would've been cut if he refused the fight.

    Barboza ain't scared. Straight up. He fought a killer in Khabib. Lee is a walk in the park in comparison.

    Admirable, but fighters need to make weight.

    It's a dick move not to.

    One is top 5 in the division and one of the most exciting and skilled strikers in the history of the UFC.

    The other looks like a soccer mom swinging after a couple of boxercise lessons.

    Barboza wouldn't have been cut, that's silly.

    That's a moronic thing to say. They offered her the fight & win bonus to NOT fight and it was the last fight on her contract either way, so if she stayed ont he card she'd be fighting for $0. Also MMA needs more people like her who stand up for themselves, these company yes-men who will do anything to try and move up the ladder are why UFC gets away with what it does.

    Agreed. Mis calculations happen from time to time of course it won't ever be perfect. But people just expecting their opponents to have no qualms with who they're fighting missing weight are just wrong.

    Barboza is game for anything, while others duck. Much respect for that.
