UFC featherweight Diego Brandao explains why he threatened to stab Dustin Poirier at the UFC 168 weigh ins and claims "The Diamond" was scared and got lucky with his win at the "Weidman vs. Silva 2" pay-per-view (PPV) last month in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Hmmm a TUF winner, 4-2 in the UFC, a FOTN bonus and a SOTN bonus, I don't think he's high on the list of "to cut" fighters

With a roster of 400 fighters, threatening to stab your opponent transcends record unless you're a headliner, which he isn't. I think he'd better walk a straight line showing this was just an anomaly and come out on top in his next bout, or he just may end up on the "to cut" list if he has another moment of un-zen..

Completely agree that with his style and skill that Diego wouldn't be cut on that basis.

But I do believe that threatening to stab an opponent backstage is cuttable behaviour and should be enforced as such. If this is unpunished it will look even more unprofessional.

I'd think threatening to stab an opponent transcends record if you're a top star as well.

I just imagined it being laughed off if a GSP or Anderson said it

Wouldn't want to be signing my name on any paychecks for a guy like that. Got his ass beat up, says the opponent was lucky. Too unprofessional to cut weigh for fight, says he knew 14 days ago he didn't intend to make weight. Says his opponent, who later obliterated him, is scared of him, so he threatens to prison shank him with a pen. Sorry, you can represent another promotion until you demonstrate maturity.

As GDP mentioned: throw in the fact that he terribly missed weight as well and it may be a justifiable cut.

Maybe he meant Poirier got lucky to make weight?

This is actually being called "stab-gate" by people? Richard Nixon did more damage to journalism than his own career with Watergate...
Or maybe we should call this "the stabbing threat heard 'round the world"

I so agree! I'm sick of everything being -gate.
