That's a great quote, and like you said, I think it speaks volumes about his character. This is his job. It is his responsibility to make weight, and he has failed to do so again. As I posted before, I don't really think it will be a problem in the future, as I'm quite sure that Dana is going to make him fight at 185.
Maybe Matt will fight Dennis Hallman next, I'd like to see him avenge those two early losses in his career...
