    He has a rough weight cut anytime he cuts weight. The guy likely walks around, not even fat at 170. Everybody knows his weight cut is huge but he's great at recovering from it and has never even gassed, iirc.

    I love weight cut analysis. My favorite was the guy telling everyone Johnny Hendricks had a bad cut because he didn't flex long enough on the scale.

    I'm pretty sure it was the shaking part though.

    I believe you're missing out the part where he looked like he had Parkinson's while flexing.

    But yes, largely speculation over weight cuts just fills the inevitable void of waiting for an event.

    The shaking was mentioned, but the guy I'm talking about used the phrase, "dropping the pose" and mentioned him flexing specifically to describe it.

    I just watched the highlights. I usually just check if the fighter drinks right after weighing. Did he drink right after?
    But yeah, I agree the Nov Uniao guys need to hire a nutritionist or a better one for sure!
