    Had to laugh wading through Twitter and seeing a reply from 'The Vox Agency' to certain journos commenting on the fact that Nicco Montano missed weight by an incredible 8 pounds - "Hi there, we sent you a DM regarding Nicco Montano's experience with weight cutting."

    Okay, press release incoming, guess this is going to clear things up. 8 pounds??! Let's go, must be pretty huge.

    Then this:

    Legit Q: Is this the WORST post/press release/attempted excuse you've ever read?

    No apology to Yanan who made weight, just a bunch of whining. No real medical insights, nothing extraordinary, just more whining. Apparent admission to having testicles. Narcissistic focus on how she'll 'pick herself up' and an attempt to position herself as somehow inspirational to others despite embarrassing herself, the UFC, and MMA once again.

    I can only hope The Vox Agency weren't actually responsible for this, because it's a PR shitshow.

    She's getting cut, right?

    She can't even make 135 now? I remember the days when a few here were saying Valentina didn't deserve a title shot against Nicco.

    There's no level of hormonal problems for this much of a fuck up. RIP first flyweight champ.

    Ahhh the old “my body quit working” excuse. It’s top 3 pathetic. Your body quit working because you’re an unprofessional moron. You refused to LOSE weight and tried to carry as much weight as possible into your cut. Her excuse sounds like she has no control over her weight. You can lose weight in the form of muscle, or fat before your cut. You chose not to do that because “you’ve done it before.” Your excuse is trash and I hope to god you are unceremoniously released.

    She could be full of shit, but if she really is doing all of that it's possible her metabolism crashed. She probably needs T3 or something lol.

    She didn't even try, that's the only way you go up a weight class and still miss weight by 8lbs. Get rid of her ass pronto.

    Weight cutting is Fncking stupid.
    Fighters should have to fit into a weight class which is a range of 10 lbs for most divisions. Hitting the top of the range for one weight check is stupid. Weight checks 6 times for the 6 weeks before a fight. 6 weeks out, 3 weeks out, day of the fight scheduled weigh ins. 3 random tests. Weigh too heavy = 10% fine every time. miss weight twice you are ineligible for POTN bonuses or your win bonus. Fighters will select the division that their able to stay within while in fight shape.

    If you are a FlyWeight then its 116-126. In the mens FLYW fighters weight should be changed to 136-145 because that's what they weigh on fight night. Adjust the classes to make sense.
    BW 146-155
    FW 155-165
    LW 166-175
    SLW 176-185
    WW 186-195
    MW 196-205
    SMW 206-215
    LHW 216-225
    CrW 226-235
    HW 236--280
    SHW 281 +

    So of eleven scheduled bouts, nine were cancelled. Nine! Remarkable.

    How stupid does someone have to be to not already be doing that? She missed out on the biggest fight of her career 3 years ago for the same reason and still hasn't learned.

    That’s not a valid excuse. If you know your metabolism is wrecked because of years of cutting, you should have allowed yourself more of a buffer by losing as much weight as possible before your cut. You can’t leave just enough wiggle room that you’re walking a razor’s edge and then pretend like it’s not your fault when this happens. She’s an excuse machine.

    Yeah it's a bunch of cliches. She should apologize to Wu Yanan, the fans etc.
