    I know But they should be called upon when it happens. And I'm triggered a bit also. Probably because I like Romero and he wasn't allowed to fight for 0.2lbs.
    It happens all the time as you say, it's just so hard to not get triggered for me ;-)

    Both would round to 170.5 if it's in 0.5 increments.

    Best case 170.7500001 down to 170.24999999
    Half a pound.

    Haha yeah.. Has to be a good 20 years ago, if not more. Maybe he was around 30 at the time, during his Quake gaming days :)

    accurate to what degree though? I can only think of 2 reasons these scales are used: (1) they are the most accurate ones available or (2) they last the longest. They seem to be the standard in doctor offices and gym locker rooms as well.

    lol, there have been a ton of times where I started asking a question in a post on here but stopped myself before posting it because the thought "what the fuck am I doing? Just google it" flashed through my head.

    Most reliable and precise and cheaper is the mechanical scale. To get a top rated best of the line digital scale would cost a lot more and even then you aren't 100% sure it will last you many years in all sorts of conditions.

    Digital ones are used for little scales the type the chemists use they are faster and they are kept in better conditions and replaced periodically.

    You want mid range you go for a mechanical one.

    And last for big numbers you can go either way it will be precise enough.. most common digital ones at this point and time.

    The commissions, not the UFC are carrying out the weigh ins.
    When the UFC gets involved, it'll look like this (blue UFC shirts):

    It was so freakin obvious, and the needle or the counter must've been moving alot.

    Pretty sure the only way you get hired by a SAC is to get a community college associates degree in something medical related and have family that already works in the SAC.

    I don't know about that.

    Commercial and industrial scales can last decades. You don't discard scales because they stop reading accurately. An organization should have SOPs for scale calibration where they are either calibrated (cost of approximately $50 depending on the scale service provider) every 6 months to one year depending on the use and requirement of the industry.
