Why didn't the UFC give Hendricks a private weigh-in like Rousey to help him make weight?

    Nah sources said Ronda wasn't going to do a weigh in for this fight. A no-weigh in clause was written in her contract. Hendricks should have gotten that written into his too. Big mistake.

    70% agreed. Especially knowing that he missed weight on multiple occasions.

    No weigh-in? At all? Or just no public weigh in?
    I've never heard of such a thing

    No weigh in at all. She had it written into her contract and the UFC had to go along with it or else she wouldn't fight, according to the sources.

    So what if she showed up weighing 150?
    How could the AC let that fly?

    lol what? Ronda weighed-in publicily just like Hendricks.

    Hendricks is purposely not making weight so he can use his "terrible" weight-cut as an excuse in case he loses.

    USADA era....

    No public weigh in would mean the televised version where they weigh in one after the other and then face off.

    The commissions would not allow an absolute no weigh in clause in a million years - unless a certain few politicians got greased up about about a million bucks worth in advance.

    Sorry, but you have to be misinformed. She weighed in this morning like everyone else. If you're correct in the rumor/contract, that must mean in a few hours here we won't see her ceremonially step on the scale and face off with Nunes.

    1. Go punch yourself in the nuts
    2. Delete 2007 account and re-register a new white belt 2017 account

    You got easily trolled. Lot of talk about what Ronda had negotiated into her contract (no media), etc. Anything regarding this is the latest joke. UFC doesn't control weigh-ins. Athletic commissions do.

    Brock Lesnar got an unprecedented USADA exemption from PED testing for the fight against Mark Hunt.

    Not surprisingly, they also did not announce his failed results until the fight was over.

    The commission was bought, just like any politician can be bought, at the right price.

    So they waited for Brock, but busted Jones? That makes no sense.
