    Wow, just wow, and timely considering all the discussion we've been having on this forum regarding dangerous weight cuts. I hope Hendricks can recover in time or he is going to get hurt.

    It looked like Diego intimidated Jury. He looks in great shape and like he's going out there to kill.

    Yeah the shaking while flexing was kinda disturbing. What's even worse is when the commission told him to stay still, you can see him say "I'm trying to".

    Well, he made weight now, so let's see if it negatively impacts him tomorrow.

    I hope the extra 1.5 lbs does not take a toll on him in the fight. I have been at wrestling matches and I was 2 lbs over and it drained me during my matches.

    As much as I would like to see Lawler win the title, I don't want to see this give Hendricks major health problems. There may be only so many times a fighter can cut so much weight to make a certain weight class.

    I watched the weigh ins earlier, seen Hendricks miss weight and looked off so I put down $25 on Lawler.

    Also put $20 on Deigo just for the hell of it.

    No major money down but they are both underdogs.

    Lol. He should have shaved that beard.

    He looked really rough. Before the GSP fight, I believe he said he walks around at almost 210 - that's a BIG cut, ~19% of your mass. Robbie, on the other hand, looked in great shape and has a very relaxed, positive attitude going in. My money is on Robbie.
