Well, well, well.. This was no surprise. Him, Daley, and Alves are notorious for this. I just can't believe he missed weight in 2 weight classes. He must be PMS'ing..

That is terrible he must of gotten to comfortable thinking would have no trouble making weight because he had an extra 15 pounds of wiggle room. I agree that he should be cut if he loses!

He got beaten by popcorn ball head once.

This is less embarassing

If this clown is that much over, does his opponent even have to take the fight?

Rumor is he was ill so he was given fluids hence why he blew up.. That's only a rumor so far no confirmation from UFC..

Damn Im very disappointed by Anthony I wanted his knock out of Belfort to leave no doubt in peoples minds.... now if he wins no matter what people will blame it on his weight.... With that said I hope Belfort Knocks Him out for not making Weight.

Johnson should have approached Dana about a catchweight fight about 4-5 days ago, so Belfort didn't have to go through the physical suffering to prepare for the fight. They should have Johnson on a treadmill all day today dehydrating himself. He can weigh in at midnight. This is so unprofessional. I say, win or lose, cut him after the fight.
In camp, he was weighing 215, so he did cut weight but obviously nowhere near enough....Belfort requested he weigh in under 205 before the fight, so Johnson can't rehydrate much at all...So he could still be lethargic going into the fight

And Foxy said he might have been sick? He sure didn't look like it at the weigh ins, he was smiling and playing to the crowd...Seemed to be in a great mood...I think he just has no respect for the sport or his opponent

where is Vitor's manager on this one? I mean, win, lose, or draw Vitor has the TUF vs Wandy thing coming up. If I were Vitor's manager, I don't think I wouldve advised him to agree to a fight an entire weight class above. I mean, if this fight were originaly cheduled for 205, Vitor would have been quite a bit bigger and stronger. Rumble, unless still sick from his "attempt", will have an unfair advantage. Vitor made weight and doesnt have the added on muscle. I still think Vitor takes it, but Rubmle should just hang his head down during his entrance. Hes a shame

i really doubt we know more than vitor's manager does on this one,

i'm guessing vitor is getting at least fifty percent of rumbles purse and if it is a catchweight they are still making rumble cut some weight, ie making him weigh in before the fight, i'm guessing vitor plans on being 205 at fight time too.... so no diff, cept for vitor's pocketing a good portion of rumbles purse


not to mention he has an easy excuse if he loses..... and everything to gain if he wins

The commission gets 10% of his purse & Vitor gets another 10%. That's te standard operating procedure.
