    Remember that first fight where he made Chael scream bloody murder? The good times.

    These guys aren't very bright, don't mind them.

    Also Filho was fighting two opponents that night, Chael and a ghost. Filho never signed up for fighting two opponents.

    "huge reach advantage"...

    1. Key word "most"

    2. Both are comparable because there was an actual champion and one of the fighters did not make weight, just like Sonnen/Filho. Both have to make weight or it's a non title fight.

    3. Key word "vacant" there was no champion so in that instance someone could win the belt even if the other missed weight.

    It does happen now though. I forget which fight it was recently, maybe Yoel, where if the one fighter won he wouldn't be champ bc he missed weight. But I might be getting details mixed up or forgotten

    Lol. Paella is more of a Mediterranean thing, from the city of Daniel Tabera. I'm from the other corner, we are more into seafood over here.

    If you wish any more help to discern length and size, or maybe some nudes, just let me now darling

    That was for a interim title, not the actual title.

    Do you have an example to support your claim? You’re acting as if there is a precedent here, but I’m pretty sure the champ has always made weight. You can’t argue as if there is a precedent when there is no such precedent. Without a precedent, this is just your opinion. Stop pretending your opinion is a fact.

    Every single title fight, that has an actual champion and not fighting for interim or a vacant title, where 1 fighter misses weight is an immediate non title fight.

    Examples...
    Filho/Sonnen
    Silva/Lutter
    Whittaker/Romero 2

    Fights where fighters are fighting for an interim or vacant title where 1 fighter misses weight, the fighter that made weight is allowed to still win the belt while the other is not.

    Examples...
    Romero/Rockhold
    Figueiredo/Benavidez

    Those are facts, not my opinion

    Every one of those instances are different from this one. We’re talking about cases where the Champion misses weight while defending. Obviously if a challenger misses weight they can’t win the title. The Filho-Sonnen title fight is unprecedented in Zuffa. Zuffa’s later handling of Romero/Rockhold and Figueiredo/Benevidaz suggest that the challenger would be eligible to win the belt, but since it is not the exact same scenario, this is just my opinion. See how that works?

    Did you read what i just wrote?

    None of those guys were champions, they're fighting for a title regardless because there is no champion or the champion is sidelined for an extended period of time.

    Filho/Sonnen was non title because there was a champion and a fighter did not make weight, it doesn't matter champion or challenger, the belt is no longer on the line. Had the WEC stuck around, Filho would've been stripped and Sonnen would've likely fought someone for the vacant title.

    It's not that hard to comprehend.
