    Looking at how fights are going it feels like they should have done this many years ago. Obviously some fights are still boring, it's always going to be like that, but people like Bisping are getting KO's. Look at Lauzons finish on Sanchez..

    I approve greatly

    Yeah those were some crappy weigh ins before and the fights were not so good like
    these days when the new weigh ins are enforced.

    I do think the earlier weigh-ins are better for fighters. So I think it's good.

    It's just weird how they do the fake weigh-ins later. Acting like it's the official weigh-in.

    No, so these recent cards clearly blow other cards out of the water? Still seems to be a pretty random craps hoot to me.

    Most of the events lately have been garbage. Are you being sarcastic?

    I was actually just thinking about that today. I do think it's had a positive influence. They should've done it long ago.
