    We must reject the idea that every time a law's broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.

    Nik Lentz pulls out of his fight with Will Brooks with 'medical issues'........otherwise known as a botched weight cut.

    Kevin Lee missed the official weigh in time, but was allowed to weigh in, missed weight by 1lb......and is given an hour to make weight. Farcical.

    I wish they'd just be honest and say it was due to weight cutting.

    There really needs to be a radical change to eradicate weight cutting altogether IMO, we're basically seeing 2 175lb(ish) guys trying to cut(by extreme dehydration) to 155lbs 24 hours before they fight.......how does it make any sense at all. Why not just make them weigh in 2 months out, or not at all.

    For fucks sake. One of the most exciting fights on the card scrapped due to another shitty weight cut, and ALMOST lost the main event as well.
    They just need to do same day weigh ins, or at least some restriction on how much you can cut. It shouldn't be an advantage to be able to brutally deprive your body of what it needs more effectively than your opponent.

    Also, too lazy to copy it (I'm on my phone) but this article about the whole Kevin Lee weigh in fiasco is hilarious. Very well written IMO...the article is titled "UFC dickhead allowed to pull of unscrupulous weigh-in"
