Cyborg puts on 19 pounds in six hours post weigh in
(mixedmartialarts.com)
Mixed martial arts is slowly waking up to the dangers of extreme weight cutting. Cris Cyborg recently cited it as a reason she was not dropping to 135 for a potential superfight with Ronda Rousey or Holly Holm. Another reason to avoid extreme weight cutting is that it can end up with fights were the fighters are in different weight divisions. And the entire point of weight divisions is that one fighter not unfairly and dangerously outweigh the other. Cris Cyborg weighed in at Cris Cybrog 144.6 lbs on Friday for her fight Saturday night with Daria Ibragimova. By contrast, the Russian weighed in relatively far from the 145 championship limit, at 143.7 lbs, indicating she is not likely to put in a massive amount. Six hours later, she weighed in at 163.8 lbs, as seen in this video from her friend Ray Elbe's Instagram. That is a difference of over 19 pounds, and pushes her up to the welterweight division.

A.J. Agazarm takes over Metamoris' Instagram account, alleging failure to pay
(mmafighting.com)
Eduardo de Lima black belt A.J. Agazarm used a planned 'takeover' of jiu-jitsu promoter Metamoris' Instagram account on Tuesday to instead chastise the organization and its promoter Ralek Gracie. Among a range of other complaints, Agazarm most notably claimed Metamoris has failed to pay him and other competitors for services rendered. "For quite sometime you have been using my image, my likeness, and the likenesses of others to promote your business and the brand of Metamoris. You claim to represent the values that Jiu Jitsu stands for, but you have been hiding behind empty promises," Agazarm writes.

Champ 'Cyborg' Justino: 5 Invicta fights left, still hope of facing Ronda Rousey
(mmajunkie.com)
For Invicta FC featherweight champ Cristiane Justino, the prospect of a fight with ex-UFC champ Ronda Rousey still looms, though not as strongly as before. With an immediate showdown nixed by Rousey’s knockout to Holly Holm, “Cyborg” is refocusing her efforts on her native promotion. A move to bantamweight, which she and her camp announced on two separate occasions, is no longer a priority. Justino was scheduled to drop to 140 pounds for a catchweight bout with Cindy Dandois, but decided to go another direction before the bout was announced.

Click Debate: Why do so few people understand MMA's judging criteria?
(mmafighting.com)
While there was outrage on social media after UFC 195, the feeling at the FOX Sports 1 post-show desk seemed to be more of confusion Saturday night. Robbie Lawler beat Carlos Condit in the main event by split decision. That's the fact. How two of the three Nevada judges came to that conclusion was under scrutiny. The fight was determined by the third round. Condit pretty clearly won the first and fourth; Lawler took the second and fifth. Most people had Condit winning the third and that's where the puzzlement lied.
