This is saddening, there is no excuse for coming in over weight when you have had months to prepare, not like a fight taken on short notice.

I thought Belfort wanted to be middle weight this is not a good sign for him to miss 195

what i dont understand is why belfort asked for a 195 catch weight fight when it was sposed to be 205 and franklin wanted 205. rich is having a hard enough time getting his name in any of the rankings because his opponents are either too lazy to make weight or dont want to lift weights to gain muscle for a bigger division. dont get me wrong. i love franklin at 195 but until we see a couple winks and a few nudges from dana saying hes thinkin about a new weight class this stuff just aggrivates me because franklin belongs in title fights. he puts a lot more pressure on you when you know hes gonna outlast you in the early rounds to pour into you in the last 3. guess thats just the curse of not having KO power. sure hes finished a lot of people. almost everyone in fact but besides when he made nate quarry go TIMBER!! most of his finishes are him just laying the beats till the point where the guy says no more and curles into a ball
