UFC Flyweight Ian McCall hit the scales at 126 pounds at yesterday's official weigh ins for UFC on FX 3 at the BankAtlantic Center in Sunrise, Florida for his bout against Demetrious Johnson tonight. Yet within hours of making weight, McCall was posting on the UG that he had already gained back almost 25 pounds:

gotta LOL @ my weight right now hahaha

Yup, his method is borderline mad science, but its legal and he functions better on that kind of cut than most guys do dropping 5-6 pounds.

If a guy has the ability to physically cut that much weight, make weight consistently without problems, and still perform, good for him. Everybody's bodies are different and react to things differently. Its the same thing with lifting weights and flexibility. Some guys put on muscle easily while others struggle with it and some guys are naturally more flexible.

Regardless, this still should be a fairly even match up like last time. Hopefully Mighty Mouse wins.

I seem to remember that Tito Ortiz would add this kind of weight by fight night.

He'd cut from like 225 down to 205 and be back up to 220 by fight night.

It's a huge advantage if you can do it right. I used to think they should implement some sort of rule to prevent this. Like how in high school wrestling you're only allowed to cut a certain percentage of your body weight.

But after thinking about it more, I've decided that there are enough possible negative consequences of a huge cut so as to counterbalance the benefits.

I still don't like the idea that the winner might not be the best fighter but rather the best weight cutter.

Still....what ya gonna do.

A bit defensive??

I have no fan favorite in this fight. I'm picking Mighty Mouse but I'd be equally happy with a win from either (I might actually prefer Uncle Creepy.)

Show me where I made excuses...

Apparently a belt wasn't part of the 25 pounds.

I just rewatched the event on DVR (I didn't have the sound up the first time). Anik says that Demetrious was given the option of having McCall face Benavidez and getting the winner (he didn't say and getting the winner but I think it's an obvious assumption), but Anik doesn't say whether it was offered the other way.

That's a slap in the face to Johnson if I'm understanding what Anik said correctly.
