Maybe they (Ufc) need to start worrying about fining or suspending fighters who miss weight, then worry about media showings. It throws fighters off, and for some alot of travelling. Media should be the least of their worries.

That is already handled by the athletic commissions.

Definitely. The guy's worth something like 10 mil. 50k is a fair fine, but it's a drop in the bucket to him. I highly doubt he likes getting fined but it's a good precedent to set. The next problem is going to be what you fine the guys who make 40k to main event a card and not 400k.

I hope this doesn't end with Silva pulling out or getting pulled out of the fight. I don't think Siva is scared of Weidman but if he is I just want to scream in his fucking ear SILVA you are the BEST fighter in the WORLD all Weidman did was beat a slow fat Mark Munoz, atleast thats what Bisping said
