    That’s a shame. Nguyen looked great in his last fight.

    Volkanovski is the real deal. I would love to him against a Jeremy Stephens. I reckon they would match up great against each other

    They need to send Volkanovski over to the US for one of their Las Vegas cards I think. Time he starts fighting outside of Australia and build his name

    Looks ideal to watch fights to me. UFC 193... Now those seats were far from the octagon.

    Thought maybe there was to big of a gap between the octagon and those front seats/media,etc.

    That was before I saw a fight though, doesn't look to abnormal

    Israel looked very good. Clearly the grappling will be the best path to victory against him, but looks a very good prospect.

    Dudes kickboxing highlight reel is very nice.

    I question how hard Romero actually took the weight cut

    He clearly thinks he's special and above everyone, and because he was called late he feels he doesn't have to bother to make the weight.

    But claims he is he for the fight and the fans. Don't bother if you can't qualify mate.

    I f**king hate Romero, so if he’s going for the traditional heel role he’s nailing it.

    Show us how easy it is then. Post a pic of you on the scales today, then show us one in 4 weeks time where you've dropped 20+ pounds. It's the first time he's misses weight to my knowledge, so to suggest it's due to the short notice isn't too far fetched.

    On the fights, Nguyen losing was a shame, but the finish was spectacular. Pedro's kimura was amazing and Israel looked like the real deal. Hoping Matthews looks much better than last time out or he'll likely take a beating.

    Samarov's awkward fist smash on his leg was just that, awkward.

    He took the fight on 4 weeks notice and missed by just over a kg. It's not like he is outta shape either lol

    This seems like a massive overreaction to me.

    Also, the amount of times fighters have missed weight since the early weigh-ins were implemented has sky rocketed. So that contributes along with the dramatic time shift.

    Nah, dudes a paid professional, doing the whole “if it’s so easy then you do it” thing is silly. Might be the first time but when you take the fight whilst already in camp with a month to make championship weight it’s on you if you miss.

    Agreed that it's silly, just like shitting on the guy for missing weight once in his career. If you or others don't like the guy, that's fine but to pile on over what seems like an unfortunate circumstance is just as bad.
