Well, the first of two weigh-ins for Wednesday night’s UFC Fight Night 21 on Spike TV went off without a hitch. Now the boys have to worry about weigh-in number two tomorrow morning, where they can’t be more than thirteen pounds heavier than the official weight they clocked in at today.
It’s an interesting policy to try and ensure that fighters aren’t cutting too much weight, but if they’re re-weighing them again in the morning, whether than right before fight time, you have to wonder whether it will really achieve the desired result. Also, thirteen pounds seems pretty arbitrary. For lightweights, it’s a pretty decent amount of leeway, but what if "Big Country" wants to hit the buffet? Who does North Carolina think they are that they can tell him when to put down the fork? That’s a decision that is between Roy and God.
