I’m guessing Brazilian friends but several complaints about scales coming out from other fighters now. Sounds like Digital scale in back was half a pound different than scale on stage.
Lots of fighters are weighing .5,so there might be something to this.

Half a pound and strip the champion?


Yeah he's pissed someone off. Bad.
Nah, that's the rules.

Miss weight as the champ, that means that if you win, you don't get the belt to take home. That means you're stripped. He's not the 155.5 pound champion defending the 155.5 pound belt.

I was about to make an open challenge for a SN bet with any takers. That would’ve been embarrassing.

No thumb on the towel, wink, wink situation? Must have not endeared himself with the brass enough

Weird situation
He’s officially still the champ until the fight starts tonight. He could mysteriously get sick in the next few hours , cancel the fight, and still be champion.

great point. i hadnt considered that

so far, ive got two main takeaways from this:

1) if Charles wins, his next fight wont be as a Champion. so he may not get PPV on his next fight. that could fuck with his emotions last night and today

2) the one you just pointed out. if he pulls out, he is still champ LOL

----

the media is trying to milk this story, and saying strange things. i heard someone on MMAFightingSBN yesterday say that Justin would prefer to take the belt from Charles as opposed to winning a belt that is no ones

im over here like. uh ... so yesterday, if he beats Charles, he becomes champ. today, if he beats Charles, he becomes champ. so what the hell are you talking about, analyst? its the same shit for Justin lol
