Johnson tipped the scale Thursday at 194.2 pounds, which is 8.2lbs over the limit for a non-title middleweight bout. Branch didn't fare much better by clocking in at 189.2 pounds.

Oddly, Johnson still reportedly agreed to pay Branch $4,000 of his purse in order to keep Friday's now 195-pound catchweight fight intact.

How did the Blackzillians allow this? Discus?

I like how Johnson is the only one getting heat when his opponent missed weight as well. It's not like Branch handled it professionally either.

I imagine it would have been a case of Johnson telling him he wasn't making the weight, agreeing on a catchweight which allowed Branch to stop cutting. Johnson wouldn't have given Branch some of his purse if Branch had legitimately missed weight too.

His body is telling him something that he refuses to listen to. Surely he was draining the water on his brain to make 170. Stop this nonsense Rumble and fight at 205 please.





There isn't any water left in that second pic

245 lb Arlovski for reference.

What a joke. He isn't even that big for a MW. Guys like Silva, Stann, Weidman and Sonnen are all probably bigger. I wouldn't take a fight against this guy at any weight.

Such a shame to waste that kind of potential.

Branch was probably informed ahead of time Rumble couldn't make weight and agreed to a catch weight and stopped cutting.

Maybe because Johnson was just cut from the UFC for missing weight. I saw some show recently, where Rumble said he brought in a new nutritionist, and no way he would miss weight.

Edit: according to Rumbles Twitter, he said he didn't miss weight.

ppl read a lot of diff things. Too bad we had contracts that said 195. So I personally don't care what the media say about anything. They talk just to talk.

Rumble annoys me so much. Absolute waste of talent due to being a douche.
