Enjoy!

@skelliher What about Castillo?  He originally weighed in at 158.  Did they fix that problem?

Castillo was actually on weight the whole time I think, the scale was just messed up.

He later tweeted his official weight is 155.8.

Dollaway also missed on his first attempt. Castillo tweeted that the scale was "messed up". He said that he checked his weight right after his first attempt on a backstage scale and made weight. 

EDIT: oh well, dtrain beat me to it.

Went into Food City today and saw Anthony Pettis on the Wheaties box. I was like "Oh that's really cool, kind of a **** move now that he's not a champion."  So I'm rooting for RDA.

lol!! Just watched the weigh ins. Rogan after Oliveira's weight miss: "we may be having an issue with the scale" ... you ******* idiot, Jury just weighed in 146 on the dot, all fighters weighed in at their weight class limits or in the vicinity and this dude who consistently misses weight by 4-8 lbs makes you think the scale's ****** up ... how ******* stupid are you?

@yoss The reason why Rogan suggested that is because guys like Danny Castillo and CB Dolloway had issues with the scales when they tried to weigh in prior to Oliveira.

I'm worried about these picks. So many fights that could go either way. And I went with the consensus dog on quit a few.

@Hornet, yeah I got that ... I still think that declaring it after a 5lbs miss, when all the other fighters were close to the weight limit while someone like Oliveira is the one on the scale is dumb. If anything, the scales provided to the fighters by the hotel were off a bit, not the official scale.

I mean, let's say the scale's a lb or half a lb off (in Dolloway and Castillo's case that would fit because both usually take advantage of the extra lb so a little extra would sway them), how the **** would the same scale suddenly be off by 4 lbs? It's either consistently wrong by the same weight or not.

Also, I think Dolloway weighed in with wet underwear, no other way his **** weighs 1.5lbs.
