I think the UFC just hasn't updated their page. They usually place the weight from the weigh-in of the last fight under a fighters profile and they probley didn't update his profile yet.

He didn't exploit anything. I am willing to bet money that everyone that fights has to cut weight no matter if it is 2 lbs or 20 lbs. He did not exploit anything. That is fighting.

I remember Rogan commentating during a Joe Riggs fight that he was 30 lbs heavier on the day of the fight than he was at the weigh-in the day before. That is some serious dehydration.

go put on a sweat suit, sit in a suana andf work out, you will loose all the water in your body. you are only dehydrating yourself by loosing the water.

cutting weight and loosing wieght are 2 differnent things.

cutting= dehydrating yourself only

loosing= actually loosing body fat

Yea, Florian fought at 180 for the Ultimate Fighter 1 against Leben and Sanchez I think, so the size issue probably wasn't the big problem, it was Sherk's ability to take him down and keep him down.

I give Sherk props for cutting so much weight and even more for doing trial runs.

perhaps exploit gave the wrong impression. He was not cheating just using the rules to his benifit. If they had rules like we did in wrestling where he had to weigh within 1 or 2 pounds the day of the fight you might have seen a differant fight.

I have seen the bad side to cutting weight so I personly dont like it very much, but is part of the fighting game and Sherk being a wrestler has been dealing with it for most of his life.

This is how my wrestling coach almost died in college becuase his kidneys failed him. Putting on solar suit in a sauna and working out is a bad idea.
