    Weidman said he was 190lbs for the Rockhold fight and mentioned he was around 205-210lbs in most of his other fights. Was it because of the broken foot that he lost the weight or some strategy?

    Are you trying to get someone to say USADA?

    Maybe broken foot is a metaphor for something else he lost?.............like his car keys?

    Yep he had a broken foot and couldn't do anything except bench press all day so he lost 20 pounds.

    Or he lost weight so he could be better prepared for the IV ban...

    Whatever he did didn't work for him, he needs to get back to taking dudes down and smashing them.

    If my memory serves me right, I believe both Rockhold and Weidman came in lighter in that fight as they wanted to minimize the amount of weight they cut due to the IV ban.

    He intentionally lost weight, said he cut out alcohol. Foot was unrelated.

    Aren't there substances that were not considered steroids before USADA but that are now banned? I heard this on the Rogan podcast.

    It's possible that fighters were taking these previously legal substances but can't now.

    You do not lose that kid of weight from a broken foot. I've broke mine. I gained weight.
    I've also took months off from training and the loses were negligible

    It may be a fact and you won't find a better guy than Chris Weidman I met him and the dude in person looks like he could not make 185 he is freaking huge and his neck looks like a tree trunk but its after the fact and this can only look like an excuse in my opinion. If you have trouble in camp and you think it could cost you your belt then don't be a hero for the UFC and save the PPV because they don't give a fuck about you and pull out of the fight until your comfortable fighting. I hate excuses

    Something was off with Weidman in his last fight. We will never know exactly what it was, but he did not look himself. He did look lighter and had no cardio. It didn't make sense.

    He did look shit as he always did, you just couldn't realize that. Weidman never had cardio.

    Didn't drop 20 lbs for broken foot OR cardio. Hmm... Well I would take a gander that this mate's as clean as McGregor. No way Weidman used anything mate no way.

    Both of the guys were off, I was expecting Luke to finish him rather quickly. When they are both healthy Rockhold should wrap it up fairly quickly.
