    The commission now has a new system in place where they weigh people on fight night and DJ was 142 lbs while Cejudo was allegedly 141 lbs. There goes DJ's excuse for Cejudo being "the bigger guy" and just holding him down. Also, TJ weighed around 149 and Cody was like 142! They are also trying to get fighters weighing over 10% more than the limit to move up in the future, which is pretty much everyone lol.

    PS: Cejudo looked bigger than TJ imo.

    How many strikes does a fighter get before they have to move up with this new system?

    I still can't believe Cejudo won. What an underwhelming conclusion to such a dominant streak.

    mighty mouse is at 25 because he couldnt get the gold strap at 35 - thats the truth. and cruz beat him not only with the height advantage and all that but because he was a better, more skilled mma fighter. johnson was quick as hell so cruz just decided to grapple and wrestle him to death.

    This mouse has been hiding at that weight for years. Cejudo offered to go up right away.

    Of course Cruz was more skilled at that point in their careers.

    DJ wasn’t even a full time fighter at the time.

    thats like making excuses for miocic because he has a job still, lol. plenty of fighters still work and have day jobs to make ends meet. no excuses, he got worked it was like a 50-45 decision. guys with strong wrestling or a strong top game have always been his weakness. we've seen multiple times now in fights hes lost and even the 2 he arguably lost (mccall and torres) their was a lot of ground work and he was on his back. its been a trend his whole career.

    Not a fan of DJ but 125 didnt exist at that time and its the only reason he fought at 135. He never had any problem making the 125 limit and he's not that big for the division.

    It’s not like that at all. Miocic trains full time and is also a fireman. It’s pretty awesome that he does that, but it’s not at all like having a full time job and fighting professionally on the side.

    Rewatch the fight. It’s closer than the scorecards say, and DJ was clearly the smaller man.

    Also, there’s not an ounce of shame in losing to Cruz.

    The point still stands—once DJ became a full-time fighter, his level of skill (the main thing I was talking about) skyrocketed.

    Mighty Mouse was a good size 135, then started cutting massive amounts of weight to bully smaller fighters at 125. He might be the only fighter to cut even more relative weight than Rumble at 170, Tibau at 155, James Irvin at 185, etc.

    They don’t give the time of day for each weight though. What if someone is weighed at 6AM and the other at 1PM? Way more time to rehydrate etc?
