So, Gina didn't make weight again...why don't they just fight at 145 and make it easier on everyone involved.

I don't believe there is...I checked ProElite's website and they made no mention of it.

what is the punishment for not making weight.

i know when lutter didnt make it the fight wasnt a title-fight anymore, but what about a non-title fight

Dang Gina has almost five pounds on Kaitlin at the weigh-ins, that means she'll have at least twice that at the fight... dang.

I heard that they cut her purse by 12% as punishment.

Here's some photos from the weigh-ins.





Kaitlin is looking pretty buff, Gina's in for a tough fight.

When a man can't make weight he goes to the scales naked. Guess the women don't have the same commitment.

Gina shouldn't try to make 140 anymore. Look at her. They both look fine as hell though.

I agree, Carano's their poster-girl and she clearly can't make 140, just change it to 145, who cares. And Gina looks REALLY thin, just change the weight limit.

im pulling for kaitlin, but she is a much smaller fighter naturally. thats the problem with women mma, not enough good girls in each weight category.

Sounds great! I mean they already invented the 140lb div for her, lets bump it up to 145 for her next fight. Of course for her next fight we'll make it 150, and the fight after that 155. Look I agree, she is hot as hell, but if she wants to be a pro fighter she needs to get her weight under control. Its not rocket science, it is about learning what your body can and cannot do, she should know by now what she has to do, missing weight 3 times in a row is a discrace for a "Pro Fighter" even if she looks sexy as hell... Hell look at what we put Lutter through and he only missed weight once.
