I think it's rather stupid fighter's have the option to just forfeit the percentage of their purse, instead of attempting to shed the extra pounds.

I think additional money should be forfeited if you decline to attempt a re-weigh in, it's not fair to the other fighter who has made weight.




Henry Martinez missed weight pretty bad tonight.




Doesnt the opponent have to say he will still take the fight if other guy misses weight...

I mean I am guessing yes but saying you wont fight of course will put you in a doghouse with Dana...

I think getting a paycheck is more important than what Dana thinks of them, especially as a preliminary card fighter

I'm not really sure, but Bubbles summed it up. I would assume if a fighter came in at Rumble weight, that Dana would be more pissed at that fighter, than someone electing not to take the fight.

In the case Martinez was 158 and some change, so wasn't that bad.

I don't ever remember a fighter declining to fight because his opponent missed weight.

They have the option though....

It just happened recently in an L2 event, I believe.

I'm pretty sure a fighter has the option of either saying no or like in this case Cruickshank will be getting 20% of Henry Martinez's fight purse.
Also DC probably would take this fight if Martinez came in 10 lbs over weight. He was disappointed when UFC 151 was cancelled. That was when they where suppose to fight initially.
DC is gonna show Martinez what being a Michigan Ninja is all about.

What is bad when fighters miss weight for me is when I put money on Cruick and his opponent misses weight...The bet should be void...This has happened to me before over a fighter missing weight and then he wins the fight...

I honestly think that more often when a fighter misses weight he usually loses. I feel even more confident in Cruickshank now.
I can't remember every fighter that missed weight off the top of my head but a couple recent ex. Guillard was over against Cerrone, Oliveira was over against Cub Swanson, Rampage was over against Bader. And tonight you'll have Martinez as the latest victim.

If you joined my camp, you would see that I listed many more

Has this rule been in place for a long time? The no one pound allowance for title fights? I've never heard of that before.

Yeah, at least as long as I've been watching MMA (since 2005).
