Carano, who came it at 141.1 pounds, appeared weak while doing a one-leg balancing act on the scale. With promoters briefly discussing whether the Las Vegan would need to drop the weight, Carano's opponent Tonya Evinger (Pictures) looked on, surprised to learn that there was a one-pound weight allowance.

Carano, shaky and on weak legs, rushed to take a seat, where she gulped down Pedialite before Evinger finally conceded and the fight was made official. As the two squared off for the traditional staredown, Carano barely had the energy to keep her arms raised, eventually opting to fold them across her chest.

I like her a lot but i hate all that weight cutting. She was sooo tired. What was that stupid one leg shiat... ?!

Citting is total BS and cheating IMO.
Diuretics and other chemicals FTW. Sometimes both fighters are exhausted from cutting and the match is boooring...
They should make the weight-ins at the entrance of the octagon/cage/ring

Here is the video from the weight-ins:

She really needs to get serious about this. This wasn't the first time this has happened, she failed to make weight on her last weigh in, but her opponent didn't mind and accepted it so she didn't have to remove any clothing or sweat the extra weight.

diuretics are a banned substance. and saying cutting weight should be illegal is probably the dumbest thing i've heard. it's a fighters choice if they want to cut weight and fight in a lighter class, they know the risks. what do you want to ban next, training hard? maybe fighters should only be able to train the same amount of time each day and with the same people so everythings fair. it's a sport, the point is to do everything you can to win.
