    I trained very hard to put on a killer fight for the fans on TV as well as the people taking time out of their lives to come from all over Ontario , even Ottawa to support me. I hope the score fighting series will bring me back… , and I cut 12 lbs of water today to make our 150 catch weight. I can not accept that Kyle couldn’t cut any more. He didn’t look any more drained then any of the professional fighters in the room. The commision told me he showed up an hour before the weigh in to check his weight on the official scale and he was five over. He said he couldnt..and He was offered to cut more weight in an allotted hour after our weigh in and he declined. The commission offered me to put on weight and weigh in again, and I declined, not out of fear of a lousy 4 lbs advantage.. But to maybe help send a message that fighters should be professional and make their contracted weight. This is the 48th time I have made weight and me and my coaches and manager can not accept him not even trying. It is weak and not the conduct of someone who is deserving to be fighting on national television.

    Wow…… ill go on the record to say that both Kyle and his camp should be very ashamed . if u don’t make weight then do everything the commission tells u to do in order to make the fight happen . He quit that’s what happen. I missed weight before but made sure the fight still happened.

  3. Seen that on your facebook Jeff and commented on your status there. Missing weight and then not even trying is very unprofessional.

    Jeff did the right thing and handled it like a professional. He is 100% in the right.

    Missing weight is becoming an epidemic. There is no excuse to miss 2 fights in a row.

    Good work Jeff I’m glad Woody paid you your show purse. You are a true professional and a class act.

    See you at the fights tomorrow Jeff I know you wish you were fighting but hold your head high and proud and enjoy the show.

    Jeff, Kyle trains with me at the gym. I/We 1st want to apologize to you, Pat and your team. Also apologize to the promoters of the show. I agree with the stand you and your team made by not taking the fight. I can see how this looks impossible that Kyle could not make 151lbs after being 148 at wreck not to long ago . . .
    I believed Kyle could be a 45’er and he attempted at wreck. I then felt after the last weighin that Kyle would have no issue with 151lbs as we were looking at moving him down to 45 still in the new year. I was totally wrong as the weight was not coming off at all today. I even contacted the promoters to let them know what was happening and let your team know also as I was trying to compensate you from Kyle’s purse on another agreed weight to try to save this fight. I will take full blame in believing that Kyle would of made this weight from his last weigh-in as I know the work that kyle puts in day in and day out..
    I am glad you made a stand and hope more fighters will do so and am sorry that your hard work with your team was not able to be showcased on the air. But this one is more on me than Kyle

    i have a question about the whole weight in process in Ontario. I thought for pro boxing there in that province that it was same day weight ins, if I do recall. And this weight in is taking place 24 hours before the fights, right? So is the commission that oversees boxing different then the one that oversees MMA?

  12. Robin Black says:

    Same commission. Different structure.

    Its universally considered too dangerous to do same day weigh ins in MMA due to the culture of weight cutting that’s grown as a part of the game.

    The commission in Ontario is a very structured and organized commission. But the culture of weight cutting is so ingrained in the athletes and sport that it would be near impossible for 1 commission to try to safely manage a same day weight cut.

    So they’ve instead been stringent about safety with day before weigh ins.

    What channed is this on ? I’m twice as interested in this card then the ufc tonight . What a amazing line up :)
    That sucks for kru jeff and I can only imagen how dissapointed he must feel . From the time I started training muay thai I have always looked up to him and his team. I got to train in one of his classes that he taught when he was in nova Scotia once when I was just starting and he’s as intelligent and great of a instructor as he is a fighter in the ring

    Not sure what your saying Jordan…… as much as i dislike weight misses Remi admitted above he missed weight before then said he ensured he did what he could so the fight went forward….. then he missed weight this weekend (shame on him spank spank) but the fight did indeed still go forward and well he got demoralized in the effort but none the less it went forward..

    not liking weight miss but just not seeing where remi went wrong when he admitted he went wrong in weight miss before

    okay i need water, sleep, bed, kids wakey soon me tired

    No one wishes anyone ill will when they miss weight. You hope they perform well.
