    They never released the footage of the two fighting on set did they?

    The fight supposedly occurred after production wrapped up and the film crew were gone.

    Claudia talked about it, and said it wasn't anything at all. I believe she said one total strike was thrown and more grappling than anything with people breaking it up.

    It definitely wasn't Chael dumping Wandy on his back in Old Navy flip flops that's for sure.

    So with these new weigh in times, the women don't need to strip down to bikini bottoms... Pretty fucking lame

    Gray looks like he's auditioning for a fucking "Machinist" remake.

    I don't think he looks that bad. But maybe that's just me.

    In the stare down pic he looks great. Hopefully his chin isn't completely gone, and he can get the W.

    IDK man, full disclosure-my GF is a registered dietician and with her education, I've inquired a lot and she's taught me about some of the serious, legitimate safety issues of the weight-cutting process in a bit more focused detail, especially concerning these extreme cuts when it comes to what happens to the body when it dehydrates, the dangers of major flux in weight loss and what the body naturally needs and physiologically requires to be a healthy organism and what detriments to the human body weight cutting has, so I'm naturally a lot more fearful and concerned about what could happen during these cuts than most(another reason I think Dolce and those types are also fucking snake oil salesmen).......but I'd always heard that Gray walked around big at LW and was always a fairly thick guy and when I see those sunken cheeks and what looks like an absence of body fat in these weigh-ins and he was having some struggles even getting to LW with IVs in the past and now he's at 145 WITHOUT IVs, that's a lot to take in for me.

    Also, given the studies regarding body dehydration and an elevated risk and exposure to the knockout, when you look at Gray's recent history of being put out, this one doesn't feel good to me

    Oh I don't disagree that cutting weight like this isn't dangerous with some serious health implications possibly. I was just referring to his appearance which for the weight cut, looks fine to me given some of the horror shows we've seen in the past.

    Anyone else excited to see Brooks in the UFC? If he gets past Pearson I say give him a top 5 guy, maybe Ferguson. I wanted to see him fight Alvarez, hopefully we'll see it in the future.

    Quick work by "The Leech". Here's hoping another fun night of prelims, especially since we'll have to sit through those painful TUF finale promo packages that take about a half hour out of the night each.

    Lackluster stoppage IMO, I guess Matthews wasn't really advancing to defend but he wasn't absorbing too much, he seemed fairly covered up and was defending pretty well, it's not like Lee took his neck. Meh.
