[QUOTE=TheAuthority;13271316]They haven't had to cut weight for the weigh in - They are heavy weights.[/QUOTE] Look at Fury's physique though, to look like that for a guy his size, you gotta be dry as hell. Watch him gain more weight…

[QUOTE=-Kev-;13271272]Jesus Christ, that's 44lbs and that is only the weigh in. Imagine on fight night. [/QUOTE] They haven't had to cut weight for the weigh in - They are heavy weights.
