Probably just messed up his timing. He could have been completely depleted @ 187. Making his odds of losing another 2lbs in 2 hours next to zero, sucks but I won't jump to conclusions for no reason. Maybe he was working extra hard with the weights and training and ate more. I only care about his performance and we don't need 5 rounds to see that.

My Top 5

(0. Fedor)
1. Cro Cop
2. GSP
3. Mauricio RuA
4. Quinton Jackson
5. BJ Penn

Wow...first the Serra & St. Pierre title match is cancelled, and now this. I thought All or Nothing was gonna be a HUGE event. I mean it still is with two debuts, but its definitely not what I used to think of it.

They should make the Rampage or Cro Cop fight the main event because Lutter just showed that he is not main event material. Not making weight with all the time he had to prepare...what a dissapointment.

Its Joe Riggs all over again!

One freakin pound! I kind of sympathize with Travis Lutter! This man has a really hard time cutting weight! He had the same problem just when he was about to face Patrick Cote. He was tired and dyhdrated and it really showed. I literally thought he was going to lose that fight with Cote because of it. He's doing something that works with most fighters whose bodies can withstand dyhdration and lose those pounds easily, but obviously doesn't work for him.

You forget that this isn't just some brutal sport where everyones out to kill each other. Its much more like a game of physical chess.-looney liam

How many guys really get a shot at redemption, let alone a title shot? Thats seriously piss poor on Lutter's part. What a jagoff!

are the fighters not allowed to weigh themselves before the official weigh in or what? maybe he should have been on a treadmill instead of talking to joe rogan.

sorry i just had to rant again.
You are right on, these guys are supposed to be professionals, this guy was training for a championship match with huge implications WTF was he thinking is an understatement. This was not some pre-lim match but the Main Event, Lutter lost alot of respect from me. Well that's my .02

You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

Way to go, Travis.

You know, when you have a once in a lifetime opportunity like this, you better make sure you grab a hold of it. Travis Lutter will probably lose, but this fight is basically worthless now. I seriously just don't care about this anymore. I bet Dana is fuming right now.

I'm so mad

Can't believe this. Lutter busts his ass on TUF to get a title shot even though there are several other MW's who are more skilled than him and he doesn't make weight.

Now I don't know if he is EXTREMELY dehydrated or what, but I used to wrestle and could easily cut 2 lbs in 2 hours, and that was after I was already 20lbs below my natural body weight. AND I wasn't fighting for a UFC title.

I just don't understand how someone earns this oppurtunity and doesn't prepare well enough ahead to avoid something like this.

Good thing I'm watching it mainly to see Mirko knocks Sanchez's head off

It was absolutey the chance of a lifetime and this idiot does'nt make weight, he's had three months to get down to the weight, screw the 2 hours. These guys are so called professionals...yeah right

2lbs in 2 hours?

Most of these fighters are cutting 10 and 15 lbs, sometimes even more. This is his own stupid ass fault for blowing his shot at a title.
