That's just dumb ... I know one can supposedly replenish a bit of blood in a day, but not when the body is also dehydrated.

Where some athletes are actually trying to cheat and increase their stamina with blood doping (re-injecting blood taken out earlier, to give extra cardio), this guy goes and actually drains himself for 20% of his small purse. No wonder he got his butt kicked, must've had half his usual cardio. Not half bad a fighter either, just bad decisions.

They should make this illegal. The excessive weight cutting is an absurdity already, but draining the blood is even beyond that. People who miss weight should get an automatic loss as they didn't show up on agreed fighting terms.

Edited the title, it was Cody McKenzie, not Gibson. And he's a dumb asshole, I hope the commission suspend idiots that go this far to make weight.

Why did they even allow this or take the blood? Dana isn't going to be too thrilled.

That doesn't sound safe in an already dehydrated and probably mal-nutrition state.

According to a doctor it isn't that dangerous:

"Medical expert Dr Ali Mohamadi told MMAfighting.com the blood McKenzie had lost would be replenished within 24 hours and as long as he wasn’t doing it more than every eight weeks he’d be OK."

Still sounds dumb as hell to me.
