    Because they don't do weigh ins right before coming out to fight. The "tonight" weight is not an official weight, its just what that particular fighters camp is claiming

    More solid information = more fun.
    Throws out excuses and silly ignorant guesswork.

    I know that GSP is like 190 on fight night. How come I'm not having more fun watching his fights?

    This ... would be real interesting to see who really are the "big" guys in every division that can easily go up if they wanted too.

    .... like GSP.

    I've been thinking the same thing for years. That way you can really see who's cutting the most and who has the real weight advantage. It shows the reach and height so why not the weight?

    I assume so people do not discredit the clearly heavier fighter. It would be easy to claim a 5 pound+ weight advantage discredits a win.

    The UFC does not think their fans are as intelligent as boxing fans and does not want to confuse them.
