    It's likely size and strength plays a factor too, and I wouldn't be surprised if this looks the Namajunas fight.

    I feel like both Lee and Mazo are just being primed for the UFC.
    I find this annoying actually. Unless they're gonna publically announce weight like this for everyone, don't do it for anyone.

    The article cites Drew Dober too, when he fought at 214. On that card Cyborg fought too, no way Cyborg weighed only 14.5 pounds more than 145 versus Evinger at 214. Also doubt that Demaian Maia weighed in at 187 versus woodley.

    I was not expecting that TBH. Thought they'd re-book Souza vs. Esquibel in Invicta, bet Souza's fuming :D

    Personally, i'm dead set against fighters cutting a lot of weight and then blowing up on fight night.

    Until they wish to actually enforce this rule on Cyborg, they should STFU about all other women.

    Tinfoil hat on, I kind of suspect they are putting on a show by going after lesser known fighters and are not likely to crack down on Cyborg, Holly, or other big names like that... they named Dober as well and he can't be the only man cutting a ton of weight. Maia and Woodley not being above the "limit" seems unlikely as mentioned.
