UFC is having its fair share of trouble with the early weigh-ins. A large number of fighters have missed weight due to this and now, Dana White is considering the reintroduction of the afternoon weigh-ins.

Some fighters are not happy about the potential shift and Al Iaquinta opened up about the same during a recent interview with ESPN.com. He mentioned that the fighters now know what it’s like to rehydrate for a long time and also added that Dana’s new move could strengthen Project Spearhead.

“The more Dana White gets in front of a mic, the stronger we get. The more he opens his mouth, the more [Project Spearhead] forms we fill out. The fighters have gotten a taste of what it feels like to get a full, almost 36 hours of time to rehydrate. I’ve reached out to more than enough people to know that if he moves that, it will the last straw that does him in,” he said.

Al Iaquinta also went on to note that he is not afraid of being cut by the UFC and threw a shade at Yair Rodriguez as well.

“That was me saying, ‘I’m not freaking Yair Rodriguez. You cut me, I’m not crying and coming back. Dana White has no power over me. That guy has zero power over me,” he added.
