Calling non-trollish UG'ers (RE: Anthony Johnson)

 How can a man who normally competes a lower weight class miss weight for a higher weight class?  This is mind boggling to me, and my brain simply cannot grasp the concept of how a situation like this actually happens.



Yes, I'm referring to Anthony Johnson and his missed weight.  I've never had to cut weight before, so I don't know the intricacies of details of maneuvers and everything else that makes cutting weight what it is, but what in the fuck, how could this have happened?



I'm a very forgiving man, but Anthony has received his last shout of support from me for once again missing weight for a fight (how many times is this now?).   



Now watch, tomorrow night he'll go out and crush poor Vitor due to his sheer size advantage.  Certain fans will naturally support this win and proclaim Rumble as the next 185lb contender, citing his missing weight as a misfortunate event that took place because of a move to a different weight class -- despite it being a higher weight class.  It makes me fucking sick to see this shit taking place right now.  Again, someone, explain how this could happen before I pull a Michael Ironside and make someone's head explode.   



I hope that Anthony loses tomorrow, I hope he loses badly, and I hope DFW and the UFC have enough sense to cut this motherfucker and send him off to some rinky-dink promotion where he can fade into oblivion and never be heard from again.  Or at least cut him until he decides to make a permanent move to the light-heavyweight / heavyweight division, where cutting weight won't be as goddamn demanding as it appears to be with the 170 and 185lb divisions. 



One more time, someone, preferably someone who is not a troll retard, explain how this could have rationally happened so I can stop seeing red and continue on with my night. 



Yes, I am mad bro, and yes, I am a fan of Vitor Belfort. 

 

 

Just spoke to manager of Said Rumble got ill three hours before weigh-in and UFC doc gave him tons of fluid



Further said was 191.5 when he awakened this morning and would have made 186 with no problems if not ill.

 


Johnson has trouble cutting to 170

BLAF says fuck you, you're fighting at 185 now

Johnson decides to bulk up and make a similar cut to 185 that he was making to 170

Johnson fucks up the cut again

Profit

So he's sick?

 



Damn, I just can't help myself sometimes.

What's the likelihood that he got ill from cutting the weight? What illness would he have that would require the doctors giving him fluid that isn't related to the cut?

Yeah, that is not what happened though (unless you think they are lying about the UFC doctor on the record????)

 Awe shit. Well now the whole fight is eff'd anyways. Not just being sick, but him not being able to rehydrate for tomorrow will have a large impact.

Diarrhea, the flu, etc

 Um one of thousands of influenza type viruses???? You seriuosly think the only sickness that requires "fluids" are all weight cutting related?

I was all but positive there was a rational explanation for the miss. It seems there is...

A 12 lb miss is significant.

I just think it's mighty coincidental

Not necessarily. He probably wouldn't have needed to rehydrate much mroe than 205 anyhow. IIRC he was talking about being 208 or some shit around 3 weeks ago. 



Hopefully whatever he caught is a 24 hour type of thing. Either way a win for Vitor will be doubted by the haters because of this. A win from Johnson will be doubted by the haters because he missed. So basically, the same UG as always :-)

 

 So Rumble, assuming he's telling the truth, has a valid excuse for this clusterfuck of a fight.  Wow, call me fucking surprised.  What a plausible excuse it is too, considering he's an American, fighting in South America, a place known for its ability to attack and destroy the immune system of travel-goers in the blink of a fucking eye.

"Got ill" is a pretty vague diagnosis.

Yes, it's lunacy to postulate that a fighter with a history of missing weight would fuck up his weight cutting again.

Do fluids really blow you up by 7 to 12 pounds? Hm.... Phone Post

Well at least he had a reason this time, I still don't like it. Phone Post

What if tomorrow he's over 205, and the fight gets cancelled? Vitor is a hero and A list celebrity in Brazil. I don't imagine the fans reacting well at all. I have to imagine the UFC will do anything they can to keep this fight on. Phone Post
