“He’s a very, very nice guy and he got screwed in his last fight,” Rogan said
“There was some shenanigans with the scale. Some people had messed with the scale. Here’s a problem with these digital scales; foreign fighters, they use kilograms and in America obviously, we use pounds.
“These scales are calibrated and then the foreign fighters would reset the scale so they could switch it back to kilograms. So it f*cks up the whole calibration. He weighed in the night before the weigh-ins and he was like, ‘Oh, I’m good to go,’ and then in the morning, he goes and shows up for the weight cut and it’s a pound plus off and that is directly related to this calibration thing.”
“Now the UFC has a new policy because of this where they have a guard who watches over the scale 24 hours a day,” Joe stated
“Like, they have shifts where no one can f*ck with the scale. If you’re gonna get on that scale to try yourself, they’re gonna watch you like a hawk and you don’t press any buttons. You just get on, what’s your weight, get off. That’s it. These guys were monkeying around with the scale.”
