No he could have asked for a change in weight limit that everyone would have been happy to give him.
I refuse to give a guy a benefit of the doubt when he used a straight up anabolic steroid made for veterinarian use the 2nd time he fought Forrest. Which was a huge fight for him coming off a loss. So he roided. Why would anyone give him the benefit of the doubt?
Chris Weidman saved a FOX main card fight by dropping an ungodly amount of weight to make 185 in a few days.
Bonnar saves a card by taking something he knows is banned. Something probably masking heavy roid use. Something that would have made the whole event look terrible if he managed to win somehow. That is "saving the event"?
A 210lb catchweight would have saved the event too. In a legal manner.
I agree some people let their stubborness just blind them to reality. Good post.
