North Dakota's Commission suspended a fighter 90 days for missing weight by over 10 lbs. Great suspension!

As a promoter, I think this is great. Guys missing weight by that much cost me money. Either because the fight falls out, or I have to pay the guy a lot more to take a catchweight fight.

I know this is really old, but I also agree, as a promoter, to an extent. In most cases, it's someone who has traveled to fight a hometown guy. The options are bleak:
1.) the hometown guy, who has likely brought many fans, friends and family, does not fight
2.) the hometown guy accepts the fight despite the weight disparity

Your contract is your word. If you don't know for sure you can make the contracted weight, don't agree to it. When I sign a contract to pay someone to fight, I am not agreeing "to try" to pay what I promised
