    What’s the documentary? “How to eat yourself out of the UFC?”

    She was a champion (LOL) at 125, misses weight at 135 by 8 lbs...thats not because of any extreme weight cut, that was all her not being a professional.

    Embarassing! it's strange because women don't even cut the same amount of weight as men in the same weight class, yet she's do a documentary about the cuts?

    Throw your UFC career away by doing a poor job cutting weight just for a documentary?

    How much are they expecting to make of this documentary if that really was the case?

    Because I'm pretty sure they're not gonna.

    "Pitch: A fighter misses weight."

    "Right, and?"

    "No, that's pretty much it."

    Not a good look at all. So much for the first Native American champion in the UFC.

    No, she didn't. The doc is from years ago around 228, it's not from this fight.

    So they want to put safety protocols in place to stop lazy, undisciplined fighters from ballooning up like amateurs and then having to resort to dangerous weight cuts to meet contractual obligations, and she has volunteered as an example LOL, what a putz.

    Dangerous weight cuts only happen because of A) undisciplined amateurs who can't stay in shape and B) people who want to get to weight classes they have no business being in so they can bully smaller fighters. In either case, I have no sympathy for them.

    She's a "HERO" for not competing, so brave and courageous!! Oh wait, that was for Simone Biles. (Sarcasm Implied)

    Given the documentary is done already, pretty dumb theory.

    So the missing word is something like "important". Pretty gauche to call your own film "one of the most important docs of the year" - that's what quotes are for.
