    That way it will be out there for everybody to see and there will be no more stupid height debates.

    Not sure what Sherdog manlets and lanklets will argue about though.

    Why do you think they measure them?

    shouldnt let them fight if they cut too much height. its just as dangerous as cutting weight.

    They should take their heights, reaches, and leg lengths and weights right then and there, and they should do hydration tests during the weigh in by testing for the gravity in their urine AND forcing the fighters to drink a shitload of water right then and there while everyone watches so that we can know that they're hydrated. We just calculate for the weight of the water so if the guy goes over the limit, we can tell if it's because of the water instead of it being that he actually missed weight, and if it's because of the water then we just count him as making weight.

    Then all will be good.

    And all fighters with weak hairlines should be cut.

    If you think theres a lot of controversy about Jones and dick pills now, wait until that policy gets implemented.

    Do it.

    Can’t wait to see New York find a way to mess that up.

    You'd probably get done for being prejudice against short, tall people and average height people. Plus some people may identify themselves at a different height than that measured. We dont have the right to question that identity.
