Travis Lutter just weighed in, i saw it live on the computer and he has to lose 2 pounds in 2 hours, if he fails to lose those 2 pounds then its up to Anderon Silva to see if they still wanna fight even if Anderson Silvs accepts the bout is still a non title bout which is very dissapointing, so lets hope Lutter loses those 2 pounds so we can see a good fight.

plus just for a history travis lutter failed to make weight against his oppenent Patrick Cote in there bout

Just one more reason why Lutter shouldnt be getting the fight. Although I hope he loses the weight so my pick will be right.

i know he had to cut a ton of weight going into this fight, what an idiot, why would anyone jeopardize their big shot, if he makes weight i'll take the idiot back, but i wanna see him get beat to a pulp so much more now

He did Make Weight in the Cote fight but he had to return to a 2nd weigh in to do so. Im guessing this is again the theme. With that i cant see Lutters Cardio being Great if he has to drop so much mass.

I can't stand it when fighters can't fit the physical part of MMA(i.e. making weight, poor conditioning, etc.) They are professional athletes, and its part of their job, and is arguably the most important part for many sports.

I think its time for Lutter to join a good camp, instead of ridin' soloooo.

Very surprised about this, but then again it isn't the first time. I wonder how much this will take out of him. Not good for Lutter.

That's just tragic. The biggest fight of his career and he might not make weight. What's worse, imagine if he doesn't make weight and Silva still accept the fight, then Lutter actually wins. He gets the win but no belt.

He needed to drop 2 lbs, but only managed half a pound. It's up on MMA Weekly.

Wow so dissappointing....I kind of feel bad for him but its just such a dissappointment for himself and for Anderson Silva.

He's really luck he won TUF and has a guarenteed contract, Dana is mean enough to cut him. I heard he didn't cut Riggs because it was the scales fault .

that doesnt make any sense dana white failed on that call. changed it to a 3 round non title fight he is retarted the tuf 4 slogan was there chance to get the title or something like that now its for no title. im outraged

What's odd is this actually improves Lutter's chance to defeat Silva. I mean his best shot is to get Silva down and lay on him for a decision. Now he only has to do so for 3 rounds instead of 5.

Of course, none of this matters if his nose is slammed to the back of his head when going for the takedown.

anderson talked about teaching Leben a lesson for being disrespectful. I would assume that having your opponent come in and not make weight would show some disrespect to the champ. This seems bad for Lutter.

Don't blame Dana, Travis is the one who didn't make weight. 2lbs in 2 hours and he didn't make it. Sounds like poor planning, as he must have been seriously drained already of water weight. If Travis doesn't make weight, by Neveda State rules, it CAN NOT be a tittle fight.

True, but on the other hand Lutter might have stamina issues having lost that much water. If he couldn't lose the 2 pounds, its probably because he'd already cut tons of water and couldn't sweat it out anymore.

Cancelling the fight would be a bad move. At least we still get to see Silva knee him about.

I agree, I really don't see the professionalism in this. The weigh-ins shouldn't exactly come as a shock to him, and he's had a very long time to make weight. I join the club of disappointed people... hope it'll be an exciting fight nevertheless...

How is it Dana's fault? Lutter did have a chance at the title. He blew it by not making weight.

Agreed.

Its one thing if your ripped and you really are down to the lowest you can make. But Lutter should EASILY have made 185. Hes soft for 185, its a title fight, and hes had months to train, he should have lost a lot of weight, as well as put muscle on. Pathetic.

Its a rule rule that in a title fight both fighters have to make weight and if somone doesnt the title holder has the choice to not fight or to make it a non title fight, its a nevada state athletic commission rule, it wasnt dana whites fault its lutters for not cutting properly.

Yeah- this news really sucks. No championship fight. Silva is going to beat him down anyway. This PPV kind of sucks now. Crocop will end the fight in less than 15 seconds. Rampage and Beastman will probably be the best fight. I'm not wasting my dime on this one.

Same thing happened to Joe Riggs when he fought Matt Hughes @ UFC 56. That had to change from a 5 round fight for the belt to a 3 round non title fight. Joe lost in the first round.
