how the hell do you miss a catchweight by 8 pounds? His name isn't Anthony Johnson

Beat me to it. I'm watching the weigh ins now and he just came out. That's the first thing I thought.

Was it a catchweight fight before?

Or just because Johnson missed it's a catchweight fight? Usually it's the second.

I remember seeing an article that said this was a catch weight fight when the fight was announced.
The reason is Johnson is a fill in. But that's more than just a pound or two over.
If the trend continues Gunnar should win this one.
Last event Charles Oliveira came in over and got KO'd in the 1st by Cub Swanson. And Melvin Guillard came in over at UFC 150 and he also got KO"d in the 1st by The Cowboy.

Looks like Struve continues to gradually bulk up. I like it

Like JLS said, Johnson took this fight on short notice (2 weeks I think wiki said) and Johnson said he couldnt make 170 in that time but agreed to 175. It's like he didn't even try...imo he should lose 28% of his pay, 1% per pound over ontop of the 20% default

Ease up on Demarques, taking a tough fight short notice on the other side of the globe ffs. He could have flatlined at 178 or 180 for all we know. No need for the pitchforks.

I don't know man. He agreed to the 175 catchweight fight that was made specifically for him. When you commit to something you should do it. It's not like he was a pound or two over. He was 8 over the already catchweight limit. That's not acceptable imo. If he was too big two weeks ago to be able to cut he shouldn't have accepted the fight or volunteered (I don't know what happened in that situation). This isn't his first time missing weight either.
