UFC 214 is a month away, however, the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) has already held its first weigh-in for the event.

Earlier this week, the commission had the six fighters competing in title fights on the July 29 card -- Daniel Cormier, Jon Jones, Tyron Woodley, Demian Maia, Cris Cyborg and Tonya Evinger — weigh-in via FaceTime.

What a can of worms this is going to open, the fallout is going to be crazy frustrating.
So, how would this affect the large number of fighters who don't have face time because they fight for peanuts on the undercard...or will they just USADA that ass like Nick Diaz.

I am glad to see this finally happening. It's good for safety and health reasons and also for fairness as well.

It's a decent idea. There were some guys who were recommended to have test cuts if they had missed or were starting a new weight. I think several said: 'nah im good' and later went on to miss weight. It's a bitch for the fighters but a good way to find out who will most likely blow it or who is making an absurd cut.

lol Jae, too poor for facetice? Bums on the street have facetime, or I guess they could use the library, lol. This is a great idea, probably the simplest solution you could ever come up with. Just make sure Cormier doesn't have a towel in eye shot...
