Dude is probably in shape though he was on ESPN and said he has ran a couple marathons to help get back in shape.

He looks horrible in that picture.

He looks to have lost a lot of muscle mass. He was always very thin when he fought at 205. He looks sick in that picture.......

Congratulations you won!

man he is really pushing the cutting weight thing. not looking real healthy in that pic, you can only cut so much. i still think lhw was his better weight-no shame losing to silva but how does moving into middleweight help him become a contender?

i don't dislike what he does as a fighter, at least he is exciting.



JUST SCRAP

This is his first fight at MW so he had to lose a lot of weight. He has always had pretty prominent cheek bones though.

It actually looks like he went the correct way about getting down to MW. Will be interesting to see if he decides to stay here though, looks like he should probably be going back to LHW.

He looks very dehydrated and much leaner but all of that really had to be expected with it being his debut at 185.

I don't see the big problem here. It's his first time! Bisping looks this rough prettymuch every single weigh in.

Usually half of a UFC card looks at least this bad.

I think he could stand to lose the muscle mass, but I guess we will see for sure how he is doing tomorrow night.

Did he ever say why he dropped down 185?

If so, I def haven't heard.

I'm assuming he'll look healthier when he's re-hydrated.

''You probably thought this was a bright idea, who hit the light switch? Hype shift, this is where it looks like the fight's fixed, tight fist, beat you with the hand that I write with, punchlines that remind Rodney King of the night sticks...''
