Just checking back in on the thread. Regarding the flying thing and anecdotal accounts, when I fought in Brazil I did notice that there was some water retention (a couple of lbs maybe, hard to judge what would be "normal" due to my fluid intake). It's likely to do with pressure and very salty foods in general terms, though I didn't partake in the food personally because of that. If you take in water, you'll get heavier same as anyone, flying or otherwise, but it might stay on you for a day or so longer than it normally would. But you can't gain what you don't eat/drink - it's not a magical substance that your body ingests from the air when flying, and the body will readjust.
You have to prepare for it and follow the right protocols on the flight with regards to food and drink to minimise the effects, especially if you're weighing in shortly after. It sucked but it was nothing unexpected and I still had to cut the weight regardless. It certainly doesn't help you on something as drastic as a water cut though.
How did he not make the CWFC awards!?

How does Fletcher v Barnaoui beat Ray v Buchinger into top fight of the year??
Seriously? Ray v Buchinger was 4 rds back and forth and Fletcher v Barnaoui was over in the 1st rd. Warranted it was an exciting fight whilst it lasted but not sure how it beats that?
Shit, biased YourMMA rubbish! ha ha, only joking guys, its public opinion I know ;-)
If you didn't see it with your own eyes, or hear it with your own ears, don't invent it with your small mind and share it with your big mouth!
I like Enty, yes he needs to make weight, but he doesn't fuck about and you know where you stand with him
That been said, Blast would wrestle fuck him n can't see him taking Scraps out in 65 seconds imvho
Not good fights for him
Was a top 5 sub tho
Just out of curiosity, how many of his 8 fights did he fail to make weight? And who against? Anyone?
