What a wack-ass day for weigh-ins. 

Not only did DC miss weight by 1.2 lbs on his first attempt, but his second attempt (less than three minutes later) saw him shed that weight in record time. But ... our title fight's on ... so, cool?

Also, main card debutant Pearl Gonzalez was removed from the card after weighing in because the NYSAC decided she shouldn't be allowed to compete with breast implants. They reversed that decision hours later, accomplishing nothing but humiliating Gonzalez in the process. 

Ridiculous, but we're a go for Saturday night with the rare UFC event of 2017 with NO cancellations. 

Prelims kick off on UFC Fight Pass at 6pm ET before shifting to FS1 at 8pm. The PPV main card kicks off at 10pm.

The UFC needs to escape the shackles of state athletic commissions. There's no reason an organization of this size should have to bring in these bozos.

Is everyone else as convinced as Rogan that second knee was absolutely, without question, clearly legal?

Either make hands down legal or illegal. Saying one hand or both hands is ******* dumb because it makes no difference.

The worst part was both fighters suffer from a **** mistake. **** you.

Both knees were legal, but i think everyone and their moms agree that rule is dumb and only creates controversy...

Weidman got ****** by his own demise for milking the **** out of it when he thought it was an illegal knee. But that doesn't change the fact that the ref was to blame for stopping the fight in the first place.

This is the first time DC actually deserves that booing. What's funny... there is no booing tonight. I don't get it. Haha

Since there's no replay in NY, once the ref called it an illegal knee it should have been treated like an illegal knee by the commission. If Weidman is ready to continue before the 5 minute allotted time, the should have been allowed to continue. The fact that Big John alerted the ref of his error should have no consequence on the outcome.

I don't care about how good of a fighter you are, standing in the octagon looking at Rumble on the other side has got to be one of the scariest things a human being can go through.

By the way I am probably in the minority here but WAR DC.
