Which brings up a question I've had for a long time. I know what happens when the challenger doesn't make weight...they usually fight at a catch weight without the title on the line, assuming the champion agrees to it. So, what happens if the champion doesn't make weight? When the challenger doesn't make weight, he screws himself, but if the champion doesn't make weight, it's a whole other story. Anybody?

I know i was holding my breath when lutter stood on the scale.

Im not sure what they do. Im sure since the challenger made the weight and the champ didnt, that dana would ask the challenger if he would still take the fight and the champ who didnt make the weight would get a small fine or some money taken out of their paycheck for the fight.

because the challenger would be screwed it was a non-title fight and the champ didnt make weight because that could be his only shot at the title. So the champ should be punished with still having to fight and paying a small fine. Cus its not like the challenger has anything to lose, to where the champ does.

I'm hoping it would be worse than a small fine...that already happens to someone if they don't make weight. If the champion is overweight, then he destroys a title opportunity for the challenger...so I hope it would be a large fine.

i think the champ should still have to put up the title even if he doesnt make weight. or have the champ weigh in at the weight the next day.

champ should have to forfeit the title or belt if he can't make weight, thats part of his job, thats one of the reasons he is paid all the money that he is, to make weight, and to fight.

Then its even worse for the champ becouse he wont have time to put the wait back on, and its not screwing the challenger out of loosing his shot or having to fight the current champ with a weight advantage. Id add a fine on to definatly.
