In between fights, I don't think that's unheard of.
Rehydrated, He generally fights around 205 after weigh-ins for MW, that's after a camp that is specifically geared to help him shed the excess weight he gains off season. He's not like Georges, he doesn't stay in shape year round, and he loves shitty fast food.
A 20-30lb net gain for a fighter who intakes the same-if-not-more-calories once they stop extensive/intensive workouts isn't a big stretch of the imagination, by any means. Rampage has admitted getting to the ugly side of 250 between bouts.
All manner of men came to work for the News: everything from wild young Turks who wanted to rip the world in half and start all over again -- to tired, beer-bellied old hacks who wanted nothing more than to live out their days in peace before a bunch of lunatics ripped the world in half.
