As BAMMA 5 approaches tomorrow, the main event hit a bump in the road when main event fighter Paul Daley missed weight turning his 5 round title fight against Yuya Shirai into a 3 round non-title fight.

The British heavy hitter was not happy with missing weight and issued the following statement following the BAMMA events on Friday. He also included a special message to Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz as well.

“I apologize to Shirai and the fans for missing weight,” Daley said. “Although the fight is 3 rounds now I only need 1 round to knock him out. The fans come to see me win the title but I promise them, title or not, I’ll win this fight and win it in style.

“Then I’m going after Diaz and I want to send him out the message that I mean business with my performance tomorrow night.”

The weight cutting bug also bit former UFC heavyweight champion Ricco Rodriguez, who failed to cut to the 215lb catchweight limit agreed to with his opponent James McSweeney.

Apologizing doesn't win belts. Making weight, on the other hand, does.

At least he apologized but to run your mouth constantly about knocking this guy or that guy out and then you miss weight or throw sucker punches. Show some respect and make weight. Then ill care.

More often than not he does knock the guy out though. It only took 86 seconds yesterday.
