Is it just me, or does everyone look confused? And what's with the scale, it looks like they stole mine out of the bathroom.

, confused like that?



This weigh-in, is going super slow with these long pauses.

For those few picking Lindland, change your picks to Vitor right now

You can still tell that Affliction is a baby promotion as far as production value goes. This is taking forever

He recently said in an interview that he wouldn't be satisfied with moving up to LHW, but that he eventually wanted to become the HW champ.

Vitor looks ripped.

I guess the breaks are supposedly for HDNET to do commercials because they're airing the weigh ins.

Lol barney swearing on live tv. I acctually like that they take time and make it more of a preview as well as the weigh in since they don't do the countdown show.

EDIT: Tuvok your good at counting, lol theres alot more then 34 people there.

Wow.. those shoes make a big height difference Arlovski

Surprised to see Arlovski coming in under 240. Normally he's heavier, and on top of that you'd figure he'd want all the poundage necessary to keep it off the ground. Glad to see the beard back, though!

War Fedor

If you want 0 points then yes, please do.


Must be KC fans, thinking they were going to beat Buffalo last game.

As much as i would love to see AA win i can't pick him because of the way he looked on the ground last time.

glad i picked Vitor...it's time for Lindland to be exposed.

the only fight i am worried about is Buentello vs Baby Fedor. i keep switching my pick but i am sticking with Baby Fedor right now.

My boy Brett Cooper is going to show why, he is the next best thing. This boy is ripped and he can kick some ass. Speight is in for a WAR.

He's a good prospect and I see a KO for him. LC is going to seriously impress everyone as well imo as he takes out Bao who has been very good lately. I think Andrei will impress as well even though I think he'll lose, and Soko has a lot to lose here in terms of legitimacy in the LH division, I kinda wanna change to Soko but I cant right now. And Kirill looks fatter than Paul hope I dont regret that pick.

your guess of 34 is wrong. i was there, and there was around 1000, to my count at least.

I'm going with Buentello.
Baby Fedor is too wild still,I think. initialy he will come out forcelfull and push the pace,but he will make a mistakes,leave himself open,and get Ko'ed by Buentello.

Since apparently it hasn't been posted yet, I found out who to blame for the weigh-ins going 90 minutes last night...HDNet. Quote below from F4WOnline from about 2 hours ago:

The reason the Affliction weigh-ins went NINETY MINUTES yesterday is because, well, the HDNet special was scheduled for 90 minutes. They had guys get on a bathroom scale (we saw this the first time around -- and also on Impact during the Team 3-D angle -- and it comes across as so low-rent), weigh-in, then everyone had to sit around for ten minutes, then the next person would come out, etc. Not very fan-friendly at all, especially since the live crowd couldn't hear any of the commentary.
