    I fully agree 8 pounds over is not acceptable and should be dealt with which it was by the loss of income.. I'm personally not a fan of weight cutting at all so I'm inclined to give a guy leeway on one screw up even a bad one like this should he do it again then yes I can see a pink slip. There are a lot of variables with weight cutting that can come in to play besides outside discipline and as we've seen recently risking your health to make weight is a poor choice.

    A weight cut can be influenced by a lot of factors some within your control some not... Acting like a thug is something he can control entirely.

    The guy is a thug, plain and simple. Trash talk is one thing but threatening someone like that isn't just unprofessional, it's illegal. He should be cut. God knows better fighters have been cut for less.

    Scared and lucky are not how I'd describe Poirier and his win.

    +1 I tried to atleast root for Brandao because of him trying to pull himself up in life, but I just can't.
