This sh*t is getting really annoying. Plus, if they win, it takes all credibility out of it.

In fact, I pretty much discount most wins won by a guy that couldn't make weight.

50% at least.
Was thinking the exact same thing. Should be applied to any bonusses paid as well.

Noticing a pattern with a particular gym not making weight is definitely an issue though, and should be addressed. It's perfectly possible that this instance is not injury related at all.
Comming in over weight is cheating imo. I understand that's rarely the intent of the fighter, but it's still cheating.
