    Not into conspiracy theories but do you think there was some sort of fuckey involved in the weigh in? Tyron looked legit surprised when he was a pound over and Till's weigh in was a little weird too. Tyron even touched upon this in his recent interview.

    Thoughts?

    It was weird.

    No way his chonies weighed a full lb.

    There was a lot of weird shit surrounding this fight though.

    When Till managed to get 169 I immediately thought there was some fuckery going on

    meh.
    it is an event.
    things get confused.

    IMHO the UFC should have a scale in the back for fighters to check before stepping into the real one.
    WOuld prevent things like these.

    the fucking government handles the weighing procedures, of course things looked wrong and shady.

    Can someone explain why they don't just use a top of the line digital scale and have it's reading put up on a screen in front of all the media members present to prevent fuckery?

    It's not 1970 why are we using a manual scale exactly?

    They do have this. You see it often on the Embedded shows. Explains why Tyron was so surprised. He knew he was on weight.
    Didn't they admit that they were reading the scale wrong for some other guys fight and both Woodly and Till had weighed in at that point.

    Because if they used a digital one, hacker nerds would unite and mess up every Colby weigh-in.

    ???

    So are you saying Till weighing 168 was more likely than Tyron's scale being off like many other fighters in the past? LOL

    There was definitely some shady shit going on. Still not shadier than DC pushing on the towel though.

    It's clear the UFC doesn't like him and want him gone, it's not whining if it's true.

    The guy working the scale didn't actually know how to use it. They fucked up Zabit's weigh in as well. There's your conspiracy.
