 Rory was fined 1k for not making weight and they gave that money to Diaz for not declining to fight.  Diaz could have turned down the fight and been paid anyway.  He chose to fight and will get 1k from Markham's purse.

Rory needs to fight in his natural weight class and stop doing retarded weight cuts to make himself have a shot in the UFC.

Other guys who cut massive weight don't have this problem.

 That's 12.5 percent of his purse.  Pretty hefty.

Not if he loses.

Markham can probably still make more money winning (-$1000) than if he loses. Justifying the weight advantage he gets. There shouldn't be such an incentive, lack of penalty.

That's what happened when Wilson Gouvia came in 4 pounds over weight for the Jason MacDonald fight.

What's even more absurd is Nate Diaz is coming up from 155, so he's a small WW. Markham dropped the ball.

Is there an additional fine if he wins? I know that it is 12.5% of his purse but would that mean an additional fine if he wins?

No.

He is still better off if he wins (with 12.5 penalty) then if he lost (without penalty). Basically there is an incentive to get this advantage/cheat.

If you look at the McDonald fight. Wilson Gouveia came in 4 lbs overweight after coming down from 205 for this fight. In other words he was a huge 185er. I believe this was the headliner of the UFN IIRC.

Jason McDonald like a trooper took the fight then got beatdown by the 205 power punches of Gouveia. So McDonald even with Gouveia's penalty made less money losing than if he would have won. And Gouveia made more money than if he had lost.

Not only that but that gave MacDonald a loss, which was followed up by a TKO elbow cut loss (from a preexisiting cut) to Nate Quarry (which was another fight McDonald stepped up and took like a trooper instead of pulling out with injury) and 2 straight losses and he was out of the UFC.

Basically stepping up to fight at such a disadvantage for the team did McDonald zero good and was beneficial to Wilson Gouveia at the time.

1,000 dollars for missing 7 lbs? Shit, to have that much of an advantage its more than worth 1k.

Respect to Nate for still taking the fight, I've never questioned his toughness.

I am sure Dana sweetened the pot with a locker room bonus.

You can basically use that excuse for anything since it's unverifiable.

What we do know is that Nate is at a severe disadvantage strength/power wise and it also may give Markham an ability to power out of some of Nate's subs.

Not to mention a loss on Nate's record is never good.

I've always liked Markham but this was very unprofessional of him. Miletich guys are usually very good about making weight and being professional about it.

What did Anthony Johnson get fined when he came in ridiculously over a couple months back on the Machida/Shogun card, actually I think he came in at 177 too, right?
