True, you can. The way it looked in Embedded though is that he was ordering it for a starter before his actual meal. If you are at a point where it is imperative that you are cutting weight, then eating high calorie, low satiety portions is just dumb. It's still dumb if he was only eating that and nothing else. Sure he stays under his calorie limit, but it will leaving him craving even more food later on, making things even harder for himself.

These guys are not just professionals, they're at the very top of their game, trying to become the best in the world. At that level, beyond a legit medical issue, there is no excuse for not being able to make weight. You want to claim you're the best, and you want to make the money that goes along with it? Grow the **** up and start taking it seriously. He's not just ****ed it for himself, he's ****ed it for his whole team who've put the work in to get him there, ****ed it for Ferguson, and screwed over all of his hardcore fans who have paid good money to travel from around the world and from all around the US to come and watch him specifically. I know the UFC are a bunch of dbags these days but he's also screwed them over because they will have invested a ton of money into this fight.

I'd wager if you remove body fat from the situation, that Tony is bigger than Khabib. Tony is huge. Khabib would be a tiny LW.

Would be surprised if the UFC did this. How can you rely on Khabib to be a big part of your card at this point? It did seem like a pretty big fight though, so maybe they try again.

Really surprised they've made Lando vs David the co-main event over Hunt vs Reem or even just Rashad. UFC recognize greatness in the groovy one I guess.

Also can't believe a WMMA fight between 2-2 & 3-0 is on the main card either.

Re: MMA/Fightin' Thread - Now with actual good fights!!

Hunt and/or (especially) Reem prbly have things in their contract as escalators for co-main status would be my guess.

Re: MMA/Fightin' Thread - Now with actual good fights!!

Devastating news. Was really pumped for this not so great card because of this fight. Need to start removing these variables from the sport. I can't imagine how frustrating it is for the UFC but they aren't taking proactive enough measures.

Do y'all think most fighters are pro weight cutting as opposed to a system that is geared towards fighters training weight? I know some would be for the advantage they gain by cutting, but what %?

Good point. Damn UFC is willing to do anything to keep costs down these days lol.

MMA gods really need to come through and deliver some beautiful Wonderboy & Lando KO victories.

And hopefully GSP pokes Bisping brutally in his only good eye.

While true, the fact the spectacularly missed weight to the point where he had to be hospitalized may lead to the idea that he shouldn't be eating like that this close to the biggest fight in his career.

Re: MMA/Fightin' Thread - Now with actual good fights!!

cowboy talked about how he used to eat jelly beans or something while cutting weight because he felt more satisfied from a pile of 500 calories of sugar instead of 500 calories of chicken breast or whatever

i'm not seeing this from anywhere official/reputable, but i have seen it thrown around by a couple posters on various mma forums that khabib cuts ~35 pounds to make 155 in the final week. have a hard time believing tony is bigger/cuts more, if true.

hospitalized with 6 pounds to go after flossing online about eating some dessert. scumbag idiot russian

I find that crazy. He doesn't really look that big. Ferguson looked bigger than him in the staredowns, and not just height wise. Then again he does carry some extra fat.

Such a treat to have Cruz commentary. Hopefully he gets the gig full time after he retires.

Wish Anik wasn't constantly babbling usless information so we could get more from Cruz.

That was a crazy come back. One of the craziest I can remember. Yuri was getting absolutely mauled.

Thought it was pretty great.
