What should have happened:
Yoel should have been allowed to make weight.
Fight should have been judged a draw or win for Yoel due to having two 10-8 rounds.
Trilogy

What really happened:
Bobby fought the scariest SOB ever to spawn in the UFC and still has his belt
Yoel will move to LHW to remedy his weight cutting issues/old age and to help grow Bobby and the MW division.
Robert doesn't need to temp fate again fighting Yoel, he has proved he is pure of heart snd fearless, no need to cut his career short.

Rumors are Yoel came into fight week weighing 5 pounds more than when he went into fight week for the Rockhold fight.

Not sure if true. However if it is, he has only himself and his team to blame. It was dumb on the doctors part too though do not get me wrong. I am with ya on that one too mr sir

It was someone in the commission not present that stopped the weight cutting before the given time had run out. All the docs on location gave a green light and he still had plenty of time to get the last weight off. So he got fucked.

Everyone can blame Illinois a doctor or Yoels team but if some 40 year old guy wants to lose 30 pounds maybe he should move up.

Ok that is even more retarded than I thought. That is completely ridiculous. I get Chicago is a big market but the fucking commission is a total joke. Yoel was in some pain stepping off the scale after he weighed in the last time but that really is not that uncommon. Dude could have shaved that .2 in an hour without a doubt

Fuck stupid commissions. :fu: :fu:

Absolutely right. Yoel could have made weight with all the time in his camp that he had to prepare for the fight.

That is a great point. Do not get me wrong, I see both sides of this issue. However coming in 5 pounds heavier into fight week than he was when entering the fight week for the Rockhold fight, a fight where he also missed weight, is solely on him and his team. This was not a short notice fight like the Rockhold one. Yoel and his team knew what to prepare for.

With that said the commission should have given him his full 2 hours to shave off the extra weight. Stopping it with .2 left when you are not even in the room is just dumb.

I think both sides have a lot of blame to shoulder on this one.

Problem with this is the water cut that most fighters do makes training near impossible, so it's not like these guys and gals can make fight weight and just hang out there for extended periods of time. That's part of the problem with weight-cutting in general :nerd:
