According to Nevada Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer on Tuesday, officials in the state "go by half-pounds so I round down to the nearest half-pound."
In Nevada, added Kizer, the scales used go up and down by .2 pounds, so 170 pounds, 170.2 pounds and 170.4 pounds would be rounded down to 170 pounds and be considered to have made weight in the welterweight division. A fighter at 170.6 pounds or 170.8 pounds would round down to 170.5 pounds and be given up to one hour to lose the necessary weight.

Why should you read this article as an MMA fan?
Uhmm, it's about head trauma, CTE.
It's a subject that guys like Chuck Liddell, Forrest Griffin, Gary Goodridge, Chris Leben, Rich Franklin, Wanderlei Silva and many other fighters should think about or at least consider. Well at least I know Goodridge's friend Bob Sapp thinks about degenerative brain diseases.
Also don't forget that Junior Seau cornered Forrest Griffin during UFC 101 in Philadelphia.
If you DO KNOW some one competing in MMA/Boxing or any combat sport (read: football, hockey) then I would forward this article to them.

There’s no such thing as holding back. I want to finish as soon as possible. The only time I did it was because he was a friend of mine. It was against Thales Leites. We went until the last round because he’s a friend of mine and I respect him
