    That doesn't make sense:

    If you're talking about him being out of shape because he didn't expect to fight so soon, then that's body fat that he has to lose.

    If you're talking about him having a harder water cut than others because he's heavily muscled, you're just wrong, because the opposite is true; it's easier to cut water because there's a lot of it in muscle.

    Was agreeing with your post until you said

    "In fact, I think he was more eager to take the fight with Rockhold because he was worried Branch might expose him."

    Never go full retard.

    Dude, stop fighting reality and facts.
    Fact: the fight was on short notice.
    Fact he took it.
    Fact, when you have a fight schedule, you schedule your workout and even your diet to accommodate your schedule. If it gets cut short, you have to adapt.


    Besides, the last weeks is when you cut most. So obviously this disrupted what Yoel had planned in terms of weight cutting.

    He didn't jump off the couch, but he was not on point with his weight cutting as well.

    He had 2 weeks less to prepare. Probably also why he missed weight

    I would do it pretty cheap from what most would, but I’d make sure all of my medical bills were covered, and I’d want a contract to keep fighting in the ufc at fw for at least five fights lol

    So what's with the super aggressive attacking of Romero? I'm not even a big fan but a couple of people seem to be going deep on him, I just wanna understand that perspective.

    I've never said anything about Luke's weight cut being an issue. Not once. Where are you getting this from?

    The poster that I quoted literally used the words "a moment's notice." Shove your strawman up your ass.



    I've never attacked Romero. You're twisting things around in your head.

    You may get a nice kiss at the end of the fight, too!

    Lol I mean, I still wouldn’t do it for less then 100k. After I heal up from that fight I should be able to make some decent money on the rest of my contract.

    Let's also not pretend that Rockhold isn't the bigger man who cuts weight to fight smaller fighters either. I'm having a hard time understanding why people are making such a big deal about missing weight. They still fought. It was still a good fight to watch. Are you personally invested in Rockhold? Rockhold vs. Whittaker would not be as competitive as Romero Vs. Whittaker. Some of you guys need to chill and just enjoy the fights.

    Yeah dude, let's ignore the fact that Romero took this fight early. It changed his time frame for his weight cut and he had to travel halfway across the world.

    Enjoy living in your own made up reality...

    What exactly was Branch going to expose of Romero? These threads on Sherdog get dumber by the day.

    Even if he did just roll of the couch to take this fight, people (likely you included) would still be making shit threads like this. He was scheduled to fight later in the month, but had to fight 14 days early against someone else with a completely different kind of fighting style. He had to start cutting weight earlier and do it quicker than usual. Most fighters like to plan these kind of things out as well as possible, but this kind of thing isn't something you can really plan out. Cutting weight isn't easy especially on short notice. Put yourself in his position.

    He showed he isn’t quite all there when he made a thread showing that a man doing a shoey can get inside his head and dictate his emotions. LOL.
