Within those two decades, a hand full of huge names have stuck with the masses, and those names almost insured huge fan interaction, high tickets sales, and large pay-per-view numbers. Names like Chuck Liddell, Randy Couture, Georges St. Pierre, and Anderson Silva brought hype no matter who they were fighting.

After rash of weigh-in gaffes, Cage Warriors to dock 60 percent of cash
(mmajunkie.com)
A number of Cage Warriors fighters have recently had trouble making weight, but if it keeps up, they could now be fined more than half of their fight purses. The organization today announced that beginning with its “Cage Warriors 69: Super Saturday” card, which streams on MMAjunkie on June 7 from London, fines for missing weight will climb to 60 percent. The offending fighter’s opponent will receive 40 percent of the fine, and the opponent also gets to choose a charity of his or her choice that will receive the other 20 percent. “We’re dealing with professional athletes here, but due to the lack of professionalism displayed by some, we’ve been forced to make these changes,” Cage Warriors CEO Graham Boylan stated in today’s announcement. “Making weight is an obligation, not an option, and this will be the first step towards ensuring that we never have a situation again like we did last week.”
