UFC 108: All fighters make weight but Daley

source: mmaweekly.com

All fogjters make weight, expect for Paul Daley.

British fighter Paul Daley weighed in a pound over the allowed 171-pound limit for his non-title welterweight bout against Dustin Hazelett, scheduled for UFC 108 on Saturday night. Daley tipped the scale at 172 pounds, while Hazelett weighed in at 168.

The normal procedure in such a case is to allow the overweight fighter an hour to lose the extra weight and step back on the scale. This was not so for Daley.

A source close to the situation informed MMAWeekly.com that during his examination by Nevada State Athletic Commission officials, Daley “appeared wobbly,” so they would not allow him to do anything further to tax his body to make weight. Commission officials apparently were concerned that any further weight cut might be too much of a health risk.

The fight will still be allowed to take place. The contracts will now be amended to reflect the change to a catch weight of 172 pounds.

MMAWeekly.com’s source also indicated that Daley would only be fined 10 percent of his fight purse. A fighter who fails to make weight after being given an hour to do so is typically fined 20 percent of his fight purse with 10 percent going to the commission and 10 percent to his opponent.

1st question: Why does ufc.com have such shitty video quality.  I watched the press conference and the weigh-ins and the quality is horrid.  Do they really people aren't all on modem's anymore?!  Is there some option I am missing to view this content in full screen HD, or is there only one level of quality they stream? 2nd question:  Where did the new black ring girl come from, did I miss something?  Daddy likes that brown sugar!  She's cute (As far as I can tell from the video quality on the weigh-in stream).
