    Kind of already been touched on but Rhonda and her coaches did everything they could to help this guy cut the weight. He was his own worst enemy when it came to the weight cut.. Not to mention he got into the semi finals because his previous opponent missed weight one would think that would make you want to avoid doing the same thing.

    As for damaging the psyche thing he was already kicked off the show at this point so he didn't see it... and I doubt he'll really want to be watching the show from last nights episode on anyways after his actions.

    Anthony Gutierrez seemed like the biggest douche on the show anyways, so I'm glad he's gone ...in such an embarrassing manner.

    "and we wrestlers know how to cut weight, everyone else is just a mental pussy and a bitch. Put the donut down Sally this is a job for a wrestler, we know how to cut weight, all we gotta do is jerk off while watching reruns of Hulk Hogan and our weight drops in a matter of seconds. It takes a real man, no scratch that not even a man, a WRESTLER to know that you need to drop pounds by starving and dehydrating yourself so you can be bigger and stronger than the next guy come fight time. Wrestling is the end all be all. This MMA shit is for pussies, so is football. Wrestlers dont make shit for money but who can resist the feel of a crotch grab or the taint huffer while rolling around on a mat with another dude an no punches are allowed"

    Dude seriously that what you sound like to me anymore. You use to have valid points but here lately all you do is preach about how great wrestling or wrestlers are. You opinion has become biased and half the time sees clouded not well thought out besides Wrestling.

    Kid is an idiot and doesn't have mental toughness to be a fighter, end of discussion. Mental toughness goes beyond just fighting in the cage. You have to be mentally tough to say no to the burger and eat a salad. It may sound simple but ask anyone who has cut weight before, having to sit down and eat a can of tuna fish while everyone around you is eating burgers, fries and pizza is not easy. It is part of the reason why I still think wrestling is harder than MMA. MMA you make weight at most 5 times a year, in wrestling you have to make weight up to 25 times in a 4 month span.

    Also the kid was stupid for not listening to his coaches. There is a big difference between getting 400 calories from a snickers bar and 400 calories from some lean chicken. Which do you think is easier to lose?

    I watched the last half hour of last night's episode and cringed watching that kid put himself through that. Brought back memories of cutting weight in high school during the holidays.

    that's just the type of leadership that MMA needs.










    if weight cutting is going to continue to pose health problems for fighters down the road.

    Jessamyn Duke reveals Rousey cut 17 lbs/24 hours to make point

    Jessamyn Duke reveals Rousey cut 17 lbs/24 hours to make point

    On a more serious front, with the males down to just three fighters, Anthony Gutierrez was scheduled to fight David Grant, with the winner fighting Chris Holdsworth in the men's finals. That is years of training perparing for one of the greatest opportunities in MMA, and Gutierrez, who had had dieting issues all week, gave up in his effort to make weight.

    As dramatic as that was, a potentially even more compelling scenario was left on the cutting room floor. As revealed by Duke, coach Ronda Rousey determined to teach her team that making weight is ultimately a mental exercise, so she cut 17 pounds in 24 hours, with a coaches challenge in the middle of it.

    The editing of the show made it appear as if Rousey was talked out of the cut by UFC president Dana White. but Duke tells you really happened.

    Anthony tried to say that it just wasn't possible for him to cut the weight because he had screwed up on his diet. But here's the thing, he could have made it. He left the gym the night before at 144, which is well within a range to make the weight. There is a science to cutting weight and lots of things that we as fighters can do to make it easier on ourselves, but the BIGGEST factor in the weight cut is your mental fortitude...and this is what Ronda wanted to prove.

    She jumped on the scale after Anthony missed weight and was 152 pounds. Without any sort of prep (diet, water loading, sodium loading/cutting, etc.) jumped in the sauna and was in there for FIVE hours before it was time to go to the coaches challenge. Yes, Ronda Rousey cut weight in the sauna for five hours, went to a rock climbing challenge, won, and then went BACK to the sauna that night and cut some more.

    The next day when it was time for Jessica and Raquel to fight, she was at the gym before anyone else arrived and was back in the sauna cutting weight. When the rest of us arrived she was sitting at 136 pounds in the locker room. I watched her warm up Rakoczy for her fight while on weight and then step on the scale in front of Dana and be 135 pounds. She did this to prove a point.

    Cutting weight is mental. You can't use screwing up your diet or your water loading as an excuse. If you miss weight, it's because you mentally broke. The fact that she pulled this off really showed that Ronda is on another level mentally. It was inspiring and motivating to see this happen in front of me. It made me realize that I never have to be afraid of missing weight... you just have to be mentally strong and never give up.

    Unfortunately, Anthony gave up.
