Tim Sylvia (260 ½) vs. Brandon Vera (225 ½)
- that is quoted form the old Yahoo sports article, just google their names and weigh ins, I wasn't sure if forum rules allow me to paste that link.
And that was a 225.5 with pudginess and some spare tire action, no veins, and no definition. I'll write it again: Fighter's pre-fight weight loss is becoming more and more exaggerated. Soon everyone will weigh 280 before weight cutting. I can sse it now Goldie: "these athletes lose an astonishingamount of weight- don't they Joe- and aren't they discredited as well?" Rogan: "Thanks for feedin me that line GOldie- Yes they lose a lot and some say BJ Penn doesn't have a work ethic. But he cuts from 280 and his weekend hobby as a sumo wrestler to 155 just in time and just in 2 days for his matches here..."
