For the third week in a row we have a high profile fight with one party not making weight. First there was Gina Carano, coming in 4.5 pounds over. Then there was Thiago Alves at 4 pounds over. Pretty bad huh? Well not as bad as Nick Diaz, who just came in 9 POUNDS OVER in his 160 pound fight against Muhsin Corbbrey. There’s a bit of confusion over the circumstances surrounding all this, with claims going around that Corbbrey didn’t make weight either and that a catch weight was agreed upon in advance.
That’s all contrary to the reports coming from people who were actually at the weigh-in, and from Corbbrey himself:
Actually, I was 2 lbs under (158) and after we agreed to the catch weight I drank a pedialite & weighed in with my wallet & cell in my pocket. It’s the commissions job to deal with him being over. It’s my job to make weight and fight. I was in camp for 10 weeks and barely got to see my wife and kid. I’m fighting.
I’m fucking blown away. I already used up all my most scathing insults for the wads that missed weight by 4 pounds, so I’m at a bit of a loss as to how I should react to a fighter coming in 9 pounds over. It’s just obscene. It’s a completely different fucking weight class!
