Or maybe a mummy without the bandages. Wow, I wasn't giving him much of a chance BEFORE the weigh-in, but now I can't see him lasting more than a round or two before being too gassed to move.

Kind of a stupid idea, but I wonder if you could put two pints of blood into a sterile blood bag, do the weight in, and then have them put the two pints of blood back? Most people can still function short a pint or two, so it could be a sketchy way to drop extra weight.

I can't possibly be the first dude to think of this though.

Back when I played football guys would pull out a pint and refrigerate it. Then when scouts came to test them they would put it back in. I Honestly don't know if it worked, but they claimed the extra blood made them faster for a short period of time.

Yeah, blood doping. Thats what all those Tour De France guys keep being accused of.

I'm talking about doing it to make weight though. A pint of blood has to weigh a pound anyways.

I know what you meant. I was just pointing out an example of the things athletes sometimes do to get ahead. I'll specify or explain next time, sorry. I thought blood doping was when you injected a hormone that increased your red blood cell count( giving you more oxygen to the muscles) . One of my former Power lifting training partner's still competes in SoCal strongman show's, and I thought he thought thats what he told me he does anyway.

Blood Doping is when you train at high altitude for some time and you get physiologic adaptations (increase of red blood cells without any doping substance among others) them you take some of your blood (the one rich in red blood cells) and when you are competing you put back that blood that gives you a boost because now theres plenty of oxigen (compared it high altitude)!

That's blood doping but now its detect on anti-doping test!

Sorry about english but i'm Portuguese, hope you understand it!

the blood thing,, is dumb,,if he did that ,,he's a RETARD,,I don't think he did,,thats not really going to work for this kind of sport...I still think lutter is going to win !

"Blood doping" refers to any illicit method of boosting an athlete's red blood-cell supply in advance of competition. The typical adult male's hematocrit—the percentage of his blood that is composed of red blood cells—hovers around 45. Since red blood cells carry oxygen through the bloodstream, increasing the number of them allows an athlete's blood to deliver oxygen to muscles more efficiently, reducing fatigue and giving the athlete an edge. Endurance athletes often train at high altitude for precisely this reason. The lower air pressure and diminished atmospheric oxygen at altitude spur the body to generate extra red blood cells, and can bump the hematocrit up two or three (non-illicit) percentage points.

Athletes can get a bigger—and illegal—boost by injecting themselves with erythropoietin (EPO), a hormone that stimulates RBC production. A urine test for artificial EPO was introduced in 1997, but it's not foolproof; while testable traces of artificial EPO disappear from an athlete's body within four days, the hormone's effects are strongest three weeks after injection.

Hamilton is suspected of using a different method of blood doping, one that requires no hormones; instead, concentrated red blood cells are transfused directly into the bloodstream a week or less before competition. For reasons of convenience and safety, autologous transfusions, in which the cells are the athlete's own, are reportedly far more common than homologous transfusions, in which the cells belong to someone else with compatible blood. Typically, an athlete has up to four units of blood removed a month or more before competition. Technicians then use a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from this sample; the RBCs are placed in cold storage, only to be reinfused shortly before the big race. (The athlete may even use EPO months before an event to boost the number of RBCs in the units of blood that get removed; the EPO will be undetectable by race day.)

Well, I guess we were all sort of right . Thanks for clearing that up. Anyway, I wonder how badly this will affect Lutter by fightime. As unhappy as I am with him not making weight, I would much rather have him come in 100% , to have the best fight possible.

Travis really looks kinda funny like that...
It's very sad that he didn't make the weight :/ About the hair...
Fighters think every single hair can make a difference but i 'm not shure if this really works and still laugh when they strip and raise their hands up....
Do your pants weigh 1/2 pound? :)

Btw... This is a picture from his first weight - in... The second was at the side of the octagon... I watched the video on ufc.com...
