Why does the UFC keep repeating "first time he missed weight" like that makes it ok?

    Same thing they said for Romero... same thing they're promoting now.

    Like, its okay now to miss weight once in the UFC? Why?

    I preferred the Zero Tolerance policy that they had before.


    If you can't make weight you should be forced to move up one weight class for your next fight. No exceptions. If it is a short notice fight, make it a catch-weight fight form the start.



    Hard to get behind someone who can't even be disciplined enough to make weight.

    Too many fighters get to decide to strategically stop cutting those hardest last 1 or 2 pounds so that recovery for the fight is easier.

    if you go to work and you're late to work by 1 minute, I guess you should be fired then right?


    Zero Tolerance policy

    Gotta spin it till the fights over when he's in the main event. Might have been chewed out privately.

    But WME have no teeth compared to the Fertittas.

    If a fighter misses weight they should be stripped naked, given 40 lashes, hogtied, paraded around the town, and then put into stocks for 24 hours while fat neckbeards mock them

    Why are they even mentioning it? The vast majority of the people watching would not think something was missing from the commentary, if that fact was completely swept under the rug. LOL

    so you 3 really think that someone who has never been late before should get fired for being 1 minute late if they work 2-3 times a year?

    are you all retarded or.......?

    kevin lee has never missed weight before and you all think he should be fired because of TS's Zero Tolerance policy?? Yeah, okay.
