I believe the traditional scale is more accurate that the digital scale. That's why they use it more often than not.

It's not necisarrily more accurate but a digital scale is more prone to error due to not being calibrated etc while an old fashioned scale is calibrated every single time someone is weighed by zeroing it.

Of course he would but there are certain factors that cannot be accounted for on a digital scale that can skew results that don't happen with humans. A trained professional operating that scale will be much more accurate over a long period as they Zero the scales every single time, where as over 100+ uses or whatever a scale used to weight people up to 265 lbs can have it's sensors skewed, the weights don't change on a normal scale.

Normally, White has nothing to do with it; it's the athletic commissions' responsibility. They're also the ones that decide what scales to use. In this case, either Abu Dhabi doesn't have an athletic commission (which has been the case when the UFC has gone to the UK and Australia), so the UFC was 'self-regulating', or they have one that likes digital scales.
