So about those early UFC weigh-ins. This weekend UFC on Fox in Chicago goes down and strawweight magnet Felice Herrig takes on Kailin Curran in main card opener. Normal enough.
The state of Illinois and the UFC are also permitting early morning weigh-ins for all the fighters on the card. Seems like a good plan.
Then Herrig posted this picture on Instagram. Mind blown.
Do you want to be a fucking professional weight cutter?!?!?
Herrig’s caption reads
“1 more day til weigh ins. Give me food. Thank you @Ufc for the newly implemented early weigh ins. It’s going to leave so much extra time for fighters to recover”
If or when the UFC and the rest of the MMA world further tweak with the science of the modern weight cut, this 115 pound human muscled skeleton picture of Herrig will become iconic.
