    I did some personal investigating to see if Yoel really did weigh in only 1 hour after his first weigh in - as he was supposed to be given up to 2 hours. Which was also a big talking point, as he was looking at sueing.
    Anyways it turns out Yoel lied and he almost fooled the world. He actually had 1 hour and 56 minutes.

    02:04:30 is his first weigh in
    (10:46am central time)

    04:00:25 is his second weigh in
    (12:42pm central time)

    He was forced to stop the cut after 1 hour.

    He came to the weigh in after 2 hours.

    This.

    If you listened to the whole weigh in with ariel, he said Yoel Romero "is now coming down to weigh in again" then says false alarm.

    He was stopped. Its not like they just tell him once and go on about their way.

    I feel like the commission fucked up by telling him that they would give him two more hours IF he missed weight. I doubt they expected Yoel to intentionally miss weight the first time because of it and they probably took an hour away from him because he tried to cheat the system.

    I’m trying to understand this... why make him wait? The commission thought he was way too dehydrated to make him continue but made him wait an hour more to weigh him? That is pretty dangerous itself. Why not just weigh him on the spot instead of making him wait?

    He was stopped? By whom? For health reasons?

    yeah plus half of his complaint was it took them like half an hour to sign off on it so he was stood round waiting for a long time before he could go continue cutting

    Ariel mentioned his team rightfully got upset when they said you need to go now, despite only one hour passing.

    So they kicked up a huge fuss about it but eventually just went - which is why he didn't appear after 1 hour but he was made to stop after 1 hour.

    They thought they could work it out with the commision who didn't listen.

    Which is why the whole clusterfuck of excuses doesn't make any sense. Had already made the allowance, during that 2 hours my guy is either cutting or re-hydrating. Waiting and arguing ain't on the agenda no where.

    what does that mean? he was kicked out of the sauna? they didn't allow him to move around? but they did allow him to stand around for an hour, dehydrated?

    it sounds like a load of crap.

    Is it that he will be given 2 hours more to cut weight or get to weigh in again in 2 hours? Because if its the latter then I don't think he has much of a case. It seems more logical to set it up like that also, because planning for getting people exactly two hours from the start of their cut isn't easy. Someone might be slow to start it, someone might be slow getting back to the weigh in, and most importantly, people would try to cheat.

    Yoels team admitted that they intended to come in heavy and then use the extra 2 hours. He and his team should have just been professional and this wouldnt have happened. I mean they deliberately came in overweight for a championship fight on the main event of a PPV.
    How many ways can Yoel find a way to angle.
