  6. @Vanilla Gorilla is correct. Perez came in at 136.8 on first attempt. No pound allowance for title fights.

  10. Robin Black says:

    A promoter has the ability to allow a 1 pound allowance for a title fight if they chose.

    Its irregular but there’s certainly nothing preventing them from doing it.

    There’s no official law or regulation that prevents them from allowing a 1 pound allowance for their title.

    Its their title they can allow a pound if they chose to.

  17. Good to hear about both fighters getting a chance at the belt. It was weird that the commission originally told us that Perez could not fight for the belt as Quenneville was allowed to fight for the W1 title against Fraser when he was overweight.

  19. Gunner says:

    glad the fight is still going ahead but i am sorry i disagree… so does Turner still get Perez’s money? Does perez have to be within a certtain weight tommorrow? Also if there gonna start adjusting all these rules and what if this and what if that then what the hell is the point of weights and contracts?

    I also disagree with the whole i missed weight so screw everyone i will throw this fight under the bus unless you either let me fight for the title even though i missed weight or now i will only fight a 3 round fight

    Just my thoughts but again what do i know all i wanna know is really how is there any deterant or consequence for not making weight for a title fight now that the age old “must be bang on weight” has been thrown out the window

    Again (and forgive my naivete), I have repeatedly seen a one pound allowance for scraps; i thought this was a given. Why is the title fight different? Not trollin’, axin’.
    Sorry you shan’t be back Gunner. I enjoyed both your Wreck fights. And your dress shirt was to die for at the Hawkes fight. Really took the heat off of Robin post-fight…

  25. Wreck-U says:

    I have to say, 1 pound allowance is the norm. It’s strange that in this case it was an issue. On the other hand, if Perez signed a contract that “stipulated” he had to be at 135 (without a 1 pound allowance)then Perez shouldn’t have the oppertunity to fight for a title. Simply put, I find it rediculous that Perez would give an ultimatum (and potentially cancel the fight) when he fucked up. May the best man win, I guess.

    What happened to Robin Black? Wasn’t he fighting on the card?

    i thought a pound allowance was the norm….. Also im surprised that robin black never posted his template on how disgusting it is to the sport when fighters miss weight? must have some ties to these fighters i guess ?

    It should be whatever the contract states or the fighter should pay 20 percent. Eric Perez is a insane talent and top 135er but its halarious that he just bullied his way into a title fight lol , good job. most promotors and comissions dont let fighters dictate what happens on their shows.

    And yes the promoter canceled my fight because my opponent refused to do a mandatory follow up medical test saying he was ‘too busy’.

    I was offered to step into a spot against a local fighter on the card but declined.

  31. Robin Black says:

    Unacceptable. Absolutely positively unacceptable.

    I know there’s a million Winnipeg people on here who thumb down the very thought of anyone saying anything about a Winnipeg fighter.

    But if anyone has a good reason why a ten year veteran should be given a pass on missing weight in a title fight I’m all ears?

    Putting the title up for grabs is strictly up to the promoter. They can do what’s right for them.

    But chastising a veteran for missing weight is strictly up to the community. Tarnishing their sheen is up to the angry mob.

    Both Eric and Nabil should know better. Unacceptable. Unprofessional. Shitty.

    Making weight, nomatter the challenges, is the mark of a professional prize fighter.

    These veterans should know better. No excuses.

    Now best of luck to Eric Randy Nabil and Brandt tonight.

  32. Unfortunately (and officially), the Randy Turner vs. Eric Perez fight will only be for the title for Turner. Due to Perez not making weight, the title cannot be on the line for him, but Perez has graciously accepted to fight five rounds to give Randy the opportunity to fight for the title.

    There was some confusion at the weigh-in that we could still officially make it for the title, but once we spoke to the Commissioner (who was at the weigh-ins of another event) then we were told that was not an option.

    I feel bad for both fighters as it takes away from the bout itself, but if Eric wins the fight and wants to, Wreck would gladly give him the next opportunity at it.

    Thanks to both Randy and Eric who are great guys and everyone involved wishes we could just have a true title fight, but I’m more excited about the potential of this fight than anything.

  33. Thanks for clearing it up Alex! I still don’t understand how Quenneville vs Fraser was for the title after Thiery missed weight a couple of years ago under the same commission.

    Still an awesome fight though! You going to set up you laptop and stream it over skype for us TMNers? :)

    Respect to the commission, WRECK MMA, and Mr. Turner. Eric had to forfeit a portion of his purse; the promotion made a decision on the title; and Mr. Turner accepted the conditions. From a fan perspective I concur that missing weight isn’t cool, but missing out on this Bantamweight title fight would have been worse. Everybody is entitled to their opinion and mine is that I love Canadian Bantamweight title fights! IMO it’s the most competitive division in the country. Great weekend to be an MMA fan. Friday night fights!

    HUGE props to Eric Perez!

    THAT is how you take responsibility for your error and accept the consequences like a boss.

    Randy is fighting for the title and Eric is taking the penalty going in there to prove something.

    Big respect Eric.

    This fight just got even more interesting. Perez will (oddly) be even more motivated.

    wish I was there fighting :(

  38. How much does the 1 pm weigh-in time mess up fighters weight cutting? Seems like most places have weigh-ins after 4pm. I agree that it is the fighter’s responsibility to make weight and Perez, Cope, and Khatib don’t have an excuse. However, I am curious if the earlier weigh-in time screws up a system someone has for making weight.

    Wuzjust-

    We’re talking about a man stepping into violent hand to hand combat with a professional athlete on the road without his coach for 25 minutes.

    It’s not a game.

    Respect to Perez.

    Keith as long as you know the time in advance you can prepare accordingly.

    For most people an early weight cut is incredibly desirable. It makes your Thursday a beautiful day of friends and food and fluids and an afternoon to enjoy your life and take pride in what you will be doing tomorrow.

    That’s better Mr. Black! No need to use expletives as you’ve got the “Word Smith” abilities to get your point across in poetic fashion. I couldn’t agree more with you on your last post. Massive credit to both fighters! Two genuine Alpha warriors battling for the WRECK MMA strap! Let’s enjoy the caged artistry!

    thanks man that’s good advice I’ll try to remember that.

    I’m just flip flopping around with the ol’ feelings today. I’m excited for these guys but so sad that I don’t get to perform. I really never worked harder in my life than I did the last 7 weeks.

    I’m happy for these guys then grumpy. Really wish I was there.

  43. @Robin Black, so do you land in Ottawa and then are told when weigh-ins are in some itinary or are you told before you get there\in your contract or is it up to the fighter to ask?

    Thumb up 1 Thumb down 0

  44. Robin Black says:

    You usually know days in advance.

    There are exceptions, like a commission changing axweigh in time, but most people ask a week out and you usually get an answer.

    If there’s no definitive time yet, you should start targeting your imaginary weigh in time as noon, as experienced guys or experienced coaches have seen noon as a fairly common ‘earliest’ weigh in time.

    If you shoot to be ready for noon, then find out it’s 3 or 4, the ‘plus’ is you’ll have more time and less pressure. The ‘minus’ is it will be longer till weigh ins, which can be uncomfortable and require some adjustments.

  45. EPerez says:

    I take full responsibility for missing, the time of weighins was my biggest problem, but whats done is done.

    On another note, I am going to burn a hole right through Randy Turner and steal the show. No offence to Randy’s past opponents but I am a completely different animal. My offfensive arsenal on the feet and especially on the grouned is unlike anyone he has faced. I am ready!
