After committing two roller-coaster years to its morning weigh-ins program, the UFC appears to be reversing course.

UFC president Dana White revealed Tuesday on UFC Unfiltered that the promotion is actively working on “getting rid” of morning weigh-ins as a result of the rash of weight-related issues UFC fighters have faced since the promotion made the switch in June 2016. White said the UFC is “looking at taking the weigh-ins back to the way they used to be,” with one official weigh-in time taking place in the late afternoon.

White’s comments sparked immediate and passionate reaction from the UFC fighter community online, several of whom spoke out against the potential policy change. Check out reaction’s to White’s announcement below.
