    Half a day more than usual.

    That's a big advantage to big weight cutters like Gus (206). I was gonna bet on Rumble (204) but I'm not so sure anymore. Gus by bigger weight cut and exceptional re-hydration.

    Lol at 40 hours. It's going to be around 30 which is not that much out of the ordinary. TS needs to learn how to math

    lol @ Saying "Big Weight Cutters" and thinking it's Rumble that's at a disadvantage just because he's 2lbs lighter

    Math isn't TS' strong point, and that's a generous understatement.

    It's about 30 hours.

    If someone were ever inclined to run a graph on victories/losses correlating to scale weights over a +/- 1 lb. differential, I'd be willing to bet the greatest success comes for those who come in at 1 pound under. Obviously fighters 5+ pounds over generally tend to be on the losing end, statistically.

    Not that I feel either fighter's weight cut is going to be a primary determining factor in this fight.

    Is this a more subtle version of my Rumble thread from yesterday... um I mean, indeed Rumble is an undersized LHW.
