    I know not many cut, but has any ever missed 265 and had to try again? I imagine that would be equally bad as Hendricks missing weight after bumping up a class

    HW is best job in the world. Can eat steak every night. Even bums are paid a million bucks a fight. Just stop drinking water two days @ 300 and you're in. Not that i know of.

    If you come in at 285, you missed weight.

    No weight limits at the time, but I'm guessing Yarborough (RIP) was the heaviest guy to ever fight in the UFC. ~600 lbs iirc.

    It's all good honest mistake. I'd edit it out though before you start getting roasted <6>

    Hendricks will when the inevitable move to heavyweight happens.

    Sylvia weighed in well over 300lbs for his fight with Mercer. I think he took the fedor loss bad and found comfort in the pantry....

    The idea of having an upper weight limit on heavyweight is fucking stupid

    I do believe Tim Sylvia missed weight once and then weighed in again later and made the weight. I forget which fight it was

    Very true, There should be no cap on HW, remove this stupid 265 cap, I don't get it. In other combat sports.. boxing, kickboxing, muay thai there is no HW cap, they can weigh what they want. If a boxer wants to weigh 400 Ibs like Butterbean then he can. I wish UFC made it 206 - anything .

    Tai Tuivasa is well over 300 Ibs, he is killing himself to make the weight. its stupid and pointless.

    Didn't he balloon up to 800 pounds once? (Probably in Sumo). It's nuts to imagine we almost had a 1000 pound fighter once.
