So can someone explain to me how Aldo went from 146 to 145 by just removing his boxers? Not that I think it matters that much, but just seems kinda shady to me.

Some commissions round to the nearest pound or half pound. I remember that being a complaint by Nick Diaz when he fought GSP.  Don't know if that's the case in this instance but that could explain it.

I am so thinking of picking Holloway now. Aldo did not look very healthy at the way in.

@gunn4206 Tony was funnier than Rogan this time.. he had a Nate diaz skit and a funny three some skit where he was in Louisville where he got his first slop top haha those skits had me dying... This was my 4th time seeing Rogan , He mainly talks about the same stuff he does on his podcast. The other times Ive seen Rogan in Chicago twice and Cleveland once.. he had Bryan Callen and Ari Shaffir open for him those times... Was hoping for Joey Diaz everytime Ive been but havent been so lucky yet.

Haven't been up to the new Little Ceasars Arena yet.  I hope it's easy to navigate in the area.
