    Rogan with the DOOM photo in the background! Nice.

    Looks like it could have been the scale. Everyone weighed in .5 lb increments, so my guess was he was 170.6 or something and then dropped to 170.4 and it just rounded down.

    There is a reason why they still use those scales at weigh ins, in hospitals etc..

    They know the cheating is going on. As long as it benefits them, they will ignore it.

    I think you are on to something. If I stand on my digital and change my pressure a bit it changes.
    Maybe you can "manipulate" our weight a bit by how you stand on it?
    just an uneducated guess.

    Mechanical scales are very accurate, once they are calibrated they cannot easily be compromised. Electronic scales are less accurate and can be affected by temperature and moisture more easily.

    (I assume anyone that actually wants to know the answer to something types the question into Google, and not into a Sherdog post)

    I would love to see Papa Carano fight Charlie Weidman inside the Octagon.
    It would be the biggest "my Dad could beat your Dad" fight in history!

    I literally had no idea that was Rogan until I saw your post and then double checked. How old is that pic? Gotta be 20 years at least, right?

    Naaah, Till rocked that Auchwitz look, I do believe he weighed 169.
    However, why the hell dont they use a precision electronic scale is beyond me. Is Dana too greedy to buy a good scale?
