    He looked terrible yesterday at the weigh ins, Joe Silva even grabbed his back at one point cause it looked like he was gonna fall over. I was pretty concerned, did he ever end up making the weight? Also how about McMann? and wasn't they're one more person who didn't end up making it?

    Sucks cause today had big potential for him. He only needed to lose half a pound but couldnt do it.

    * McMann was 136.5 on her first try, but waited till after the weigh-ins to re-weigh with the aid of a towel and was 136.
    ** Borg was given one hour to make the flyweight limit of 126 pounds, but elected to not cut additional. He will be fined 20 percent of his fight purse.

    McMann made it straight after the weigh ins, with a towel. Borg decided not to cut and took the 20% fine.

    I believe McMann was actually able to make weight, she just needed to remove her clothes. She didn't do it on stage, but probably did it sometime after.

    Well that's disaponting. I expect Borg to be fighting for the title soon but missing weight isn't going to help him get a shot.

    It was a little strange they didn't allow McMann to weigh in with a towel. They need to take a page out of Invicta and setup some kind of curtain. It adds drama to the weigh-ins when a fighter has to disrobe to make weight.

    Good for Sara.

    Borg needs to start making weight if he plans on fighting for the belt.

    Either the scale was off yesterday or everyone was a little heavy for their weight class. Only a couple fighters weighed in right at the limit. Everyone else was either half a pound or pound over.

    Glover Teixeira (205.5) vs. Ovince St. Preux (206)
    Michael Johnson (155.5) vs. Beneil Dariush (156)
    Sam Alvey (186) vs. Derek Brunson (186)
    Jared Rosholt (237) vs. Timothy Johnson (265)
    Sara McMann (136) vs. Amanda Nunes (136)
    Ray Borg (*126.75) vs. Geane Herrera (126)
    Uriah Hall (185.5) vs. Oluwale Bamgbose (184.5)
    Chris Camozzi (185.5) vs. Tom Watson (185)
    Dustin Ortiz (125.5) vs. Willie Gates (126)
    Frankie Saenz (136) vs. Sirwan Kakai (136)
    Chris Dempsey (204.5) vs. Jonathan Wilson (205)
    Marlon Vera (135.5) vs. Roman Salazar (135)
    Scott Holtzman (155.5) vs. Anthony Christodoulou (156)

    He looked extremely bad at the weigh ins and it must have been a horrible cut if he didn't want to cut that extra .75 of a pound.

    Geane Herrera might be a smart bet

    Doing the towel weigh in, in private for women if they choose I support.

    People act like asses, and it's not about the fight anymore. I remember the towel drop with Carano and it took over the fight.

    For sure, I'm thinking Herrera gets it done
