    While I sympathize with fans that buy tickets, resting players is common in many, many sports. Baseball players rotate pitchers, football players sub players, soccer rotates their players as well.

    Unfortunately Roy is too tough for his own good. The guy can take serious punishment, but he's past his prime and needs to consider stopping before he gets too badly hurt. There's a big difference...

    1. 115 is a 20 pound cut, NOT a 10 pound cut. 20 pound cut is a crap load more than 10 pounds. I wouldn't expect Cyborg to cut from 145 to 125 or Rousey to cut from 135 to 115. Now, if there was...

    Catchweight between UFC champions is something that Dana would definitely do, as long as JJ cleans out the division and Rousey is still around at that point and not off doing movies full...

    The reason for not having a 145 weight class is that the 145 weight class lacks 2 key components.

    1) A deep division.

    Now, 135 is going to have a larger pool of fighters than 145. Put simply...

    The UFC has made clear that they won't allow the fight at 145 or a catch weight. And if you're the UFC, you wouldn't allow it either.
