Evidently Ricco Rodriguez missed weight for this event. Badly. As in 10 pounds. And he's given his foe-to-be, Daniel Tabera, 20% of his fight purse. "I'm a professional fighter. What happened today was a result of many factors, but after all it's me who did a mistake, and I have to pay for it. I didn't have to do it, but I felt that it's not Daniel's fault. He prepared to fight a Light Heavyweight, so I have to compensate him."

More later.

I can honestly say that Icould understand why he was over weight, I mean didn't he just mess up his knee, an injury could be a factor. Still though 10 pounds is ridiculous.

Agreed, 10 pounds is atrocious. If his knee was going to impact his return this badly, he should have pulled out of the fight.

Or at least call in advance and have it set as a catch weight bout....lots of guys will take that offer to avoid cutting weight themselves and still get a shot at a big name.

I think we, the consumer, should 20% off because he missed weight.
