LHW was the class he should have stayed at. imo...
Maybe he thought he could cut the weight and after that he would put the weight and strength back on and be stronger than most of the MW, but...maybe it's just to much for him??/
wait and see.............

Maybe that 1 punch from silva did more damage than we thought, his face does look caved in. Other than that he looks to be in really good shape.

He looks like a non-wrestler cutting weight, It seems, imho, that wrestler's bodies get accustomed to cutting weight after so many tries and after conditioning your body at a younger age so it is almost normal. This is a reason why wrestlers overall have an advantage in regards to other fighting disciplines overall when weigh-ins are involved the day before the fight..

Wow, James Irvin has fought in over two years. Weird.


His career is so strange. He fought in WEC and UFC early on but got dropped from both after one loss in each. He fought in a no name organization, had one absolutely bizarre fight in SF (if you guys haven't seen it, look it up), then a fight in a no name organization again. Re-signed by the UFC, had one convincing win... then had an injury loss to Thiago Silva, then a DQ win to Luiz Cane... then the long-standing fastest KO in UFC history, followed by a loss to Anderson Silva... then a two year hiatus from fighting?

Wtf have you been James?

Those sharp ass cheek bones are not going to be helping when Sakara is punching his face off.

Judging by how he tentatively stepped onto the scales and how relieved he looked when he made weight, it must have been a hard cut.

The photo obviously agrees with that. James Irvin is not a middleweight and does not have the body type that allows a comfortable cut like Anderson for example. He looks ill

I honestly am not seeing what you guys are seeing here. His body looks like he's in perfect shape. His face looks a little odd but I think lighting has a bit to do with that and it's not like the weight cut gave him his high cheek bones.

agreed. He looks shredded up as always, a little thin but its weigh ins. His face on the other hand pretty sunken in but whatever, thats weight cutting. He made it, now he is pigging out and hydrating he will be fine.
