Just announced on the weigh in show
Extreme weight cutting is a problem for MMA. It's not just dangerous moments like this, but in every fight, we have fighters who just put themselves through hell and their performance suffers because of it.
Cut the WaightCuts !
Yeesh. He looks awful here. Hopefully he rehydrates soon and they can figure out what caused the issue and fix it, or move him up a weight class
Didn’t this guy commit some crimes back when he was in the WWE or something? Crazy that the UFC keeps hiring these types.
Damn I like him because he trains with DDS
If you can't even stand up man just call it
I'd prefer them just miss weight by a couple of pounds than show up like this, this is disturbing to see
There's an obvious solution but the problem isn't big enough or financially motivating enough for the UFC to actually do something about it.
Are you thinking of Chris Benoit?
Something needs to be done about these extreme cutting issues.
Its gonna take someone getting really hurt or killed for them to do something unfortunately.
Which is what?
The UFC and AC shouldn't have even allowed him to walk up to the scales in that condition, plain and simple.
Someone like what One does in theory. The problem with One is they keep their process secret, presumably so they can control the matchups and do shady shit behind the scenes. The UFC doesn't have the incentive to do hydration testing and it would cause more problems for them than it would solve. At least until someone dies of dehydration and they are forced to do something.
What's even crazier is this guy actually pronounces his name Ben-oyT
Fuck that's rough
Yeah exactly haha, to me there isn't a perfect solution, more weight classes would help a lot, but the whole hydration testing thing seems sketchy to me. Tough to know when it hasn't been done openly.
This guy is 3-3 idk how he’s even in the UFC lol. Especially considering he wasn’t even impressive when he fought in Bellator.
It would be a solution but there's no financial incentive for the UFC to do it. Whatever fights they lose to a bad weight cut they would probably lose even more due to failed hydration tests. It would hurt their ability to make matches. There would also be the cost associated with testing everyone. There's just not enough outcry for them to take on all the problems it would cause for them.
At what point is the commission allowing him to even step on the scale. The back area has countless commission members and physicians floating. Not to mention some pre weigh in checks. Some of these camps must really hide the fact their fighters are struggling back stage.
I don't even get why the comission allows him to step on the scale. so stupid
Separate names with a comma.
