    Pettis didn't begin to cut from 153lb, that's not true. Check some videos of him out of camp or 2 months before a fight. No way is 153lb. 8lb would be easy to cut by any profesional fighter. Pettis normal weight is 170lb easy.

  3. http://www.mmafighting.com/2016/12/...to-missing-weight-for-first-time-in-career-my

    "According to Pettis, who spoke exclusively to MMA Fighting following the weigh-ins, he arrived in Toronto weighing 153 pounds"

    "Pettis said he he got down to 146.5 pounds before his team decided he would not be able to lose any more weight."

    If he arrived in Toronto 4 days ago weighing 153, an 8lb cut isn't anything at all for most fighters.

    But, who knows how much of that is true. He could just be trying to save face.

    he's literally interviewing on fox sports 1 right now -- he said 6 pounds is all he had to cut and it just wouldn't come off
     
  5. Yeah, I don't really know what to chalk it up to -- maybe all the personal drama going on with him recently(people breaking into his cars, who knows the underlying story there) has been a detriment to him.

    Or maybe he's telling the truth and really did just have his body shut down on him. He did look good at the weigh-ins, though. So I hope it's the latter.

    i think he's pussing out a bit, bisping just said the same thing. he prolly COULD have made it but he decided not to drain himself. it's cheating. i hope 20% of the purse isn't the only thing he loses, i hope he loses the fight. i think he will.

    I think hes full of shit no way he got to toronto at 153
     
  10. True. If he wins, even though he wont get the belt, there's no other logical fight for Aldo.

    Edgar is ranked #2, and Aldo just recently beat him for the second time.

    I see value in Pettis still...despite all of this.

    event props up -- O6.5 dec +155

    likely decisions:

    holloway-pettis
    gastelum-kennedy
    OAM-dober
    letourneau-pereira
    lopez-ganon
    makdessi-vannata
    saggo-khabilov
    makovsky-ortiz

    that's 8 LIKELY ones, some are VERY likely, imo

    the 4 less likely

    cowboy-brown
    choi-swanson
    cirkunov-krylov
    mein-meek

    but it's like any of those can't be a decision, 1 of the 4 prolly will be, if not 2

    so i'm doing O6.5 DEC +155 and up, bigger than usual on an event prop like this

    man kelvin really looked like shit on the scales, not that he ever looked great at ww. this dude is just not a mw at all.

    still, if he can keep it standing i really think he's got a great chance of winning this.

    killed it today, have some juicy looking parlays for tomorrow that depend on the first couple bouts of tomorrow. ONWARD to victory!! Hope people followed through and played the juice on Burgos and Sanchez after my breakdowns.

    sidenote if im doing well im most liking buying out of my Holloway parlay. 90 percent of the reason i bet him was because I knew the cut to featherweight would be brutal on Pettis and in a 5-rounder there would be no way he could keep up with Maxs pace. Last three pounds don't sound like alot but if he went through with it he would fight like death tomorrow.

    Now he actually looked good at the weigh ins and didnt even try to make weight. If he fights fresh (like I believe he will) and dosent gas he's a hard stylistic match-up for ANY striker out there.
