    •Anthony Johnson (204.5) vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira (205.5)

    •Josh Thomson (155) vs. Bobby Green (155.5)

    However, it appears Brown will not have to cut the extra weight according to Tweets such as:

    Okay, so the commission was going to fine Brown, but he was willing to keep cutting. Dana and commission went back and forth, avoided fine.

    Brown will not be fined by the commission or UFC. He just told me he was told not to cut any more weight and is good to go for tomorrow.


    8:27 PM - 25 Jul 2014
    SO, what's up with the situation here? Did he just elect to forfeit 20% of his purse instead of cutting the weight? Was it 'unsafe' for him to cut any more? Or did Dana just stuff a big wad of bills in the commissions pocket to make things A-OK?

    Is it just me, or did Johnson not look that big? He was big, but not much bigger than little Nog. Although, it is the weigh-ins, and he'll likely be 20-40 pounds bigger tomorrow.

    I was going to post the pictures from it, but can't seem to find them online quite yet. Any volunteers to do that ....?

    Don't know if I can sleep tonight with the anticipation. It's like being a kid and waiting for fucking Christmas morning to come I'm so excited.

    I'm right there with you man! I'm stoked for the whole card, especially the main and Rumble's fight. I didnt get to see the weigh-in but you are right Rumble will be bigger tomorrow. He should be just fine and good to go, no worries there.

He died with his family. 3: In certain extreme situations, the law is inadequate. In order to shame its inadequacies, it is necessary to act outside the law. To pursue natural justice. This isn't vengeance. Revenge is not a valid motive, it's an emotional response. No, not vengeance. Punishment "

    Brown's a UFC "bro", so since they like him, they're massaging the rules by saying that he misunderstood the commission doctor who "recommended he cut no more weight", which he "mistook" as the commission telling him he could not cut anymore. Dana's comment to the degree that, "he had every intent of making weight" is such a crock of shit when you look back to oh....I dunno, a Travis Lutter or Joe Riggs and ask if they didn't REALLY intend to make weight for their title fights.

    Why do they have a picture of Michael Johnson fighting Josh Thomson? I thought Bobby Green was fighting him?

    Green is Johnson's late replacement, its an old poster. And Fedorlei its not the UFC massaging the rules if the commission was going to fine him and didn't.

    Yea, old poster dude. I just wanted to put up the one with all the fighters on it.

    Anyone notice it looks like Matt Brown only has one hand in the poster? No hands actually, one is behind Lawler, and the other is a stump.

    IMO, it's quite an apropos poster since Brown is going to catch himself a Nick Newell/Gaethje-level beating tomorrow night lol.
