The NYSAC continues to f shiz up = culinary union still lurking?
 
Max was apparently on track to cut the weight, but some retards in the NYSAC apparently deemed him unfit to continue just because they didn't like the way he looked (no doctor's input).

This and a few other NYSAC ineptitudes (including the weight of Iaquinta's underoos) are mentioned here:

Hearing that they couldn't agree on the money... perhaps showtime wanted "2012-2014 showtime" money..

What?..... Wait what the f**k is happening? So it's a five round title fight for both parties correct? And i really wish they just went with Ortega

That quote, right there, basically sums up this whole week for the UFC.

But yeah, unless something has changed in the last couple hours, which wouldn't surprise me by now, it's a five round fight and both fighters can go for the title.

You know, I think back to how long the UFC and MMA in general have struggled and fought to get MMA certified in New York.  With all the crap that's happened in NYSAC-regulated events, you kinda have to wonder if it was worth it.

Both fighters can win the title. He was 155 lbs exactly after they deducted the weight of his shorts

Wait, I thought only Khabib could win the title in this fight?

What I understand if Khabib wins he gets the belt in the octagon, but is Al wins he gets it later and not in the octagon.
