    Funny considering Green just fought Prazeres who also missed weight by 5 pounds.

    Can't keep letting people weigh in at what they feel like is healthy and take a % hit. The missed weight cut usually favours the person. If someone misses weight by more the a pound or two they should be forced to compete in the weight class above until they can make weight 3 times for that division

    Des just killed two people, which imo is more egregious than blowing weight

    It's been too long since someone missed weight, I missed the Sherdog outrage. :cool:

    And I bet Des Green isn't complaining about that extra 40%. Goes a long way towards his legal bills.

    Obvious stunt to get Des Green extra money for his legal woes (to put them lightly)

    jin-soo is the first name (can consider soo as middle name). son is the last name. if anything, they should call him jin. im a yank and i know it. sherdog never gets it right and it ticks me off. its their freaking names. get it right.

    Never miss weight before then you miss by 7 pounds? There had to have been some sort of complication.

    Unless there's some real penalties, there's no reason to hit weight. Seems like a lot of fighters are choosing to go this route

    I feel bad for Des. Fighters shouldn't be pressured to accept these fights because the pay system punishes their already limited income if they turn it down.

    Injury maybe and couldn't get the last few lbs off.

    It's anyone's guess which fighters are missing weight on purpose to have an advantage, but doesn't seem to be much talked about a fighter getting injured mid-camp and having to nurse it. Especially Taisumov as he's fighting so close to home.
