3 fighters didnt make weight? I wonder why Franca and Griffen agreed to do a catch weight, did Franca know he couldn't make weight?

And Belfort seriously the 4th try, that means Belfort tried to lose .25 pounds once and hadn't shaved it yet ridiculous for a guy who wants to fight at MW.

This is him @ Affliction 1:




@ Affliction 2:






I know it wasn't at the same weight and pics can be deceptive with the lightings etc. but he still didn't look in that great of a shape to me.

just looks like he does have more fat on his belly now than at affliction. perhaps he let himself go a bit, knowing he would be fighting ten lbs heavier.

They're saying 4 tries but it was really 2. The 1st time he was over by a lb or so, then he took off his pants, he was still over, then removed his ring and he was over by a 1/4 lb. Then he had to get back on the scale within an hour to make 196, which he did (4th try according to them).

He ditched his training for the last fight and started packing it on for Fedor, maybe the timing was just bad for this fight. I hope he smashes Rich in the first round so we can have a solid contender for whatever weight class he chooses.

Edit: Just realizing how long ago that was.... wow time flies..

I was at the weigh-ins and Vitor did look really soft. I was expecting the ripped vitor from affliction. Efrain did not look to be in good shape at all. He was really pudgy for the weigh-ins. Don't know what happened with the Hermes-griffen fight. It seemed like it was going to be at 155 since that was what griffen was weighing and Joe didn't know about it until the time of the weigh in.

Yeah like Xerxes said:
First time he steps on, doesn't really look with it wearing his fight shorts and even his socks I think.
Second time Dana tells him to take the extra stuff off. He loses the shorts and socks - still a bit over.
Then he gets nekkid and is .25 over.

He could have done all that in two tries instead of three. He was a quarter pound overweight. You can't really condemn him for that.

wasn't belfort fighting in affliction at 185 ? Not sure anyway 10 lbs makes a difference I am laughing at people saying he looks chubby I must be a beached whale then. BTW pls enough with the Franklin fights at 195 this is getting old give him a guy that wants to fight at LHW.
