    Then why isn't it against the rules set forth by the commission?

    Depends on the amount missed. Plus, Yoel missed weight and lost to Whittaker this year.

    Serious question. does anyone know that penalties/rules in boxing if a figher misses weight?
    Yes, I can look it up, but maybe someone already knows

    they need to weigh and monitor these guys all year round and come up with safe standards for off season weight, training weight, pre-fight weight and fighting weight

    No, it doesn't.
    Sometimes the last 1-2 pounds are the hardest and kill cardio.

    Kevin Lee prior to Barboza fight clearly admitted that he stopped cutting because he did not want to feel bad.
    He didn't even understand that it's exactly what is called "to get unfair advantage"

    As Rogan would say, onefc does weigh ins way better. The ufc should just follow that format... though it would shake up the weight classes and force guys to fight closer to their walk around weight. Which is a way safer and fairer system.

    It is. The ONLY reason infantile UFC gets away with it is if the fighter that makes weight agrees!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The commission nor the UFC has ANY authority to FORCE a fighter to fight an opponent that fails to make weight. The commissions DO allow for a fighter to fight one WC up however. Technically a non title fight at LW where one fighter makes weight 156 and the other misses by less than 15 pounds (169 in this case) can be contested as a WW bout (or catchweight . . .) if the fighter that makes LW agrees to it!

    I do admit that Uncle Fester threatens damn near every fighter that refuses to fight their opponent with their job. While Dana would NEVER really fire any of these fighters admittedly for that reason, as it would be illegal. We all know in reality however that Dana would find another "legal" reason to release the fighter, AND DO SO!

    That's Lee. For some reason you're assuming that everyone cuts weight exactly the same. They don't. Anyone that's actually cut weight on a team will attest.

    Its unprofessional if you cant make it move up .... Simple if 170 pound champ is over hes the 171 pound champ strip his belt.. He doesnt care move him up. Cutting weight should be the least of a warriors problems

    Lee is an example that amount of missed weight DOES NOT DEFINE the seriousness of advantage the abuser gets.

    My point was "It depends on the amount missed per said fighter". It seems we're making the same point but misunderstanding each other.
