    Did her job… trained hard and made weight. Is Normal. Just has to wait till the end of the year to get what is rightfully hers.

    she must be sad she might have to fight a worthy opponent for the title rather than have it handed to her.

    I don't see how it's rightfully hers when she has one squash match win in the division.

    They should have had a backup plan.

    Nicco knows the writing is on the wall, she needs to just give the belt to Valentina.

    Until you lower fighter pay, this will keep happening.
    • Mayweather never missed weight or pulled out due to injury until he got rich http://www.espn.com/sports/boxing/news/story?id=4485941
    • Mayweather consistently fought 3-5X per year until he got rich.
    • Conor consistently fought 3-5X per year until he got rich.
    • UFC weight issues correlates with the increase in fighter pay.
    • Poor desperate fighters make weight and fight despite injury more consistently than fighters that have $10,000 (or more) in savings.

    One door closes, another door closes. Terrible fallout. Val got hit with the bullshit stick.

    She definitely called it. She'd been saying all week (at least) that she didn't expect Nicco to show.

    Montano would rather eat a fat guy's ass than fight Valentina.

    Well, this is the second time she has had someone drop out of a title fight the day before or day of. She has every right to be pissed.

    They should have learned from the Carla Esparza "championship reign" and given Montano a title shot, not the title itself for winning TUF against a real legit fighter (Valentina) for the vacant title

    Winning a reality show to become world champion is stupid as hell and devalues the title

    I dont believe for a second Nicco planned this. She cant make the weight for whatever the reason. Totally unprofessional and Im glad she got stripped but...this outcome was not the plan. I heard Rogan saying this shit too. Come on son.

    Just give Bullet the belt and let the division move on from there.
