Alright, let's all calm down and try to think of some realistic, plausible explainations for this:

1. He got stoned with Joe Rogan after his TC interview, got the munchies and ate 46 donuts
2. He saw that Burger King have some kind of new bruger with Angus beef and he just had to order 18 of them
3. The scales in his camp were distorted by a gravitational anamoly caused by Tim Sylvia walking by
4. He had a fight up with his girlfriend the day before the weighin, and, with sexual priveleges off the cards and no time for a quick one off the wrist, he gained 2 kilos in 'population paste' overnight.
5. The marvel supervillain 'Graviton' came alive off the pages of the Fantastic Four and decided to ruin his title prospects by increasing his mass as he got onto the scales
6. Anderson Silva bribed the guy who looks after the official scales to jimmy them, because he really is so scared of Travis Lutter.
7. Everyone who watches MMA, or is involved in it, has taken LSD, accidentally or deliberately, over the last day (not just Joe Rogan)- none of this is actually happening
8. Lutter has converted to some kind of super-noncompetitive and egoless Buddhism, called antimatthughesarama Buddhism, and doesn't want a title fight.
9. It's a hilarious practical joke by Zuffa (don't worry, the title fight is still on).

If you think about it, everyone of these is more plausible than

10. Lutter isn't professional enough to do a simple thing that allows him to take the biggest opporunity of his professional career.

This just went from a fight that I would consider one of the biggest upsets ever, to just a mid-card at best. Now Lutter could defiantly still win....but it doesnt matter. Silva will destroy him tho...and nobody will take notice like when he pummeled Leben.

Silva coulda fought someone much more exciting.

I sometimes wonder why they cut so much weight? Couldn't they walk around closer to their fight weight, wouldn't that help with energy?

I think body mass is such a huge advantage, if you can outweigh your opponent by even 5 lbs of muscle at fight time, all else being equal of course, you should win. I know for me over the years 5 lbs of muscle one way or the other equals huge changes in gym strength sticking to the same weight training regimen. They said GSP was like 185 in his fight with Matt Hughes, and he did look just huge in that fight. Course he also had the skill, but body mass matters.

Lutter however is a moron, I mean at some point you're no longer a MW
