    Missed weight for the second time in 4 fights, do you think he should have to fight at 185 now? How many chances do you get before your forced to move like Hendricks and Gastelum?

    Yeh, maaaybe give him one last go in non title fight to make 170, but if he fails that, then it's up to 185.

    Look at Robert Whittaker's success, that would be a sick matchup btw.

    How does he size up against the 185 roster?
    Anybody think he would be top 10?

    I like Till, but if the UFC sets the precedent with him and Big Mac like they have, who is going to take it seriously. There needs to be an actual repercussion, like no ranking change if the overweight fighter wins as well as a more serious fine.

    At his age he is going to be forced to as weight cutting is going to get harder. I do want to see him smash Covington, Perry and Mickey Gall though before he goes.

    and this fight hould have zero bearings on the WW rankings.

    thompson is #1 even if he loses

    He will get seriously hurt at 185. So overated. He fucked up big time. He had everything going for him on a silver platter and pissed it away for the time being.

    I don't really see how this is debatable. Bragging about how big he is and then missing weightt makes him look like an unprofessional jackass. Shut up and move up, bro

    He should go to fucking LHW, he keeps saying he’s one. He’s definitely not a ww.

    the commission is supposed to get involved and decide if 170 is an acceptable weight class given the misses. Also if he can prove that he can make 170 medically healthy then they will consider the class ok to fight in


    they should do the 30 day 10 day 1 day weigh-in IMO

    His size is overstated. He'd get mauled at 185

    Make a 175lb division instead, we need the 165lb division.

    Itd be hilarious if he got forced up and dominated in back to back fights.

    Bragging about being so much bigger and then missing weight so badly...pathetic

    Yeah. He's clearly too big for WW and having weight trouble despite being so young. Moving up is unavoidable for him.

    He cracks the top 10 easy. Middle weight is shit after the top 5. Now how he matches up against the top 5 - that's another question. You might see a better version of Till since he's not cutting crazy amounts of weight.
