Until the required 50% drop out rate that seems to go with all UFC events these days

If it's Conor's business then fuck off alluding to it continually.

It's probably something as stupid as Conor guest starring on the 2nd season of Looking for a Fight

Is there any hint yet as to what it might be?

Could be some sort of explanation on medical grounds as to why he can't fight / cut to 145 anymore.
Which would go some way to appeasing the UFC and not diminish the 145 as much as he has been doing lately.

White is always at shite like that. He's trying to cover his spineless ass and put the blame onto Conor

How do people weigh themselves accurately? I cant seem to get a set of scales to read consistently, although they are both cheap pieces of shit. But surely a scales a scale?

I always used the same set of scales so I could monitor myself for weight gain/loss. Problem was when I went to competitions and had to weigh in on different scales and thought I was below the limit I wasn't always...

Im using a set of old style needle scales, mainly because the reading is lower on them lol

Have a cheap set of digi scales and the weight seems to be all over the place, every time its different.

So im using the needle ones as the seem to be consistent at least.

I wonder are the ones a doctor would use be exact?

It can depend what time of day you weigh yourself too, so try and keep that consistent each day. First thing in the morning you'll weigh different to what you weigh at 2pm after lunch and stuff.

When I was trying to row lightweight I had to be under 70kg during competition and at certain weights at different points of the season. I don't miss that.

Rousey vs Nunes in for 207

Dana saying GSP is unlikely for 206. Hoping it's bullshit cause I can't see what else is big enough to top DC vs Johnson. Especially as I'm trying to go to it.

McGregor saying he doesn't want to fight in Vegas again. Fair play to him. Fine that size, he's hardly gonna be happy

Unless Rousey gets a new striking coach, she is gonna get lit the fuck up and KOd inside the 1st round by Nunes
