Your right. He took the fight knowing that making weight was expected of him. I think there might have been added pressure because this fight was put on hold so many times. Who knows,... I did meet Thiago once, and know several people who know him, and he seem like a really nice guy. I bet it was as heartbreaking to him to not pull through with his weight as it was for everyone else. If dolce can indeed get him to be a healthy 170 the go for it,...other wise a move up to 185 is the only other option.
