    That’s the kawa family blueprint. Say you’re going to sue, and then never sue.

    Would the "up to" part save them though?

    it says up to 2 hours, not 2 hours. And the video shows it was basically 2 hours between his two attempts.

    What exactly are you suing over? You didn’t win the fight. Yes some people think you did but technically you did not get your hand raised. And you have a history of not making the correct weight. So it’s on you. All on you. Your fault.

    I don't know if it makes any sense, maybe for other fighters in the future who comes in the same situation.
    And what want Romero to archive, he want money or he just want to get things right?
    He can also move up a division, get a fight with Gustafsson and with a win, fight Cormier for the LHW title

    Yoel got 1hr 56 minutes.




    Not really grounds for complaint there! The rules only state "...up to 2 hours". He's not guaranteed 2 hours exactly to the second :p

    Exactly, plus in this case he had very close to 2 full hours between weigh-in attempts:

    Aight, up to 1 hour 56 min. How do you know you are allowed to use them? Or is it some fat fuck from the comission who has never stepped a foot inside a gym, will tell whether or not you are allowed to use the extra time? It ain’t right.

    Because it would have been more difficult and taxing on his body to cut it all the first time. Whittaker did it, he should have to as well.

    The argument the commission would make is that you wouldn’t have received the bonuses if you kept cutting, as you wouldn’t have been in the right shape.

    I’m not sure Yoel has actually declared this of yet, heard comments from his manager/s how are frauds and bizarre individuals for a professional environment

    He won't, but the commission shouldn't just be able to arbitrarily change the rules without having informed the fighter.

    How can you overrule the doctors "for the fighter's safety" when you aren't a doctor?

    According to below the belt, Schaub said Rogan was there and textin him as it went on and confirmed yoels story. He says the doctor was saying yoel was fine but the commission pulled the plug on the cut 45 mins in for no reason

    “Contestants who fail to make the weight for their designated weight class shall be given up to 2 hours to make required weight. Any contestant who fails to make the weight shall be disqualified unless both contestants consent to participate in the scheduled bout. The weight differential shall be approved by the Division; bouts may be cancelled per the Division's discretion.”

    Hating on someone so bad that you can’t fucking accept facts.

    Missed the weight

    Don’t play games. Make it on the first try.
