No way does Silva walk into the Octagon ring at 220+ GSP probably walks into the Octagon before the fight at 185-190. I couldn't see Silva being much more than 205 tops on fight night.
I weighed in at 135 and the next day was 148 before.
13 lbs for my body weight is a lot. My buddy fights at 145 and walks around at about 160. Obviously there is a lot more room to gain in a bigger fighter.
