For a title fight you can only be a half-pound overweight, not 171. If it's so manageable for Thiago, then why has he never legally been able to make 170, only 171? At some point the body can't sweat out anymore water.

he's never been in a title fight, so why would he force his body cutting an extra .5lb when its unnecessary....when the time comes to cut that extra .5lb....he will

I think you guys are misunderstanding what I'm saying. If Thiago wins this fight for a title shot, how is he going to make 170 when he hasn't been lower than 171 in his entire career? I'm just saying I have doubts that he can hit 170.5 because he hasn't proven he can get the low ever.

Just because he's never made 170 doesn't mean he can't though.

I agree, I'm just still skeptical. If he hit 170 with this fight he would have eradicated my skepticism, but he didn't so I remain as such.

that's exactly how you know how much weight a fighter cuts.

after all that pedialite/water and IV fluids he'll be walking into that cage at 190+. If they weighed him prefight I'd put money on him being between 195 and 205
