    Fantastic stance taken by KOTC and Unified in punishing Briere for 40% of purse and commission!

    The standard has been set for unprofessional behaviour, more promotions must now follow.

    Very happy to see this, well done!

    100% agree with Bobby, it’s about time the penalties got a little more severe for people missing weight by large margins like this! Can’t help but cheer extra hard for Bonesaw in this one!

    Briere. You’ve been around for awhile.

    You know the drill.

    You know how bad this is. You don’t need anyone to tell you about unprofessionalism.

    You owe these people, and yourself, a great performance tomorrow night.

    Go do it.

    I hear ya Bobby. I agree.

    But in great Westerns, when a man has shamed himself you let him feel his guilt and you invite him to one last showdown to save face.

    I love Westerns.

    Ok. I shouldn’t have watched both those Westerns tonight.

    Nobody hates a weight misser more than me. There’s never an excuse.

    Genuinely sorry about testing my admittedly weak “MMA is like a good Western” theory before really giving it a thought.

    Carry on.

    I was 2 pounds over against Banin….worked hard to get there since he was 3 rd opponent giving to me …was suppose to fight at 155 …but in order to fight needed to get to 150 for a catch weight… Did what I could…

  28. Tyler Davis says:

    Troy agreed if you know for a fact your toning to miss wieght by that much you can tell the promotion to inform opponent so he might not have to cut those kidney killing last 5 pounds and could make for more competitive fight

  29. Bdc says:

    Maybe he did tell the promotion and if brad wanted the 40% they told him to cut to the contracted weight as most promotions would do.

    @Will – you blew your catch weight by 2 lbs?

    Still not cool homie.

    @KOTC – Did the promoter know that Mike would have needed to weigh in fully clothed and soaking wet to make anything close to 150?

  34. Just Sayin' says:

    Maybe Merrick Duggan and Travis Briere should fight. They both wanted to go down to 155 and both failed miserably at it and put both of their opponents at a disadvantage. I feel bad for the guys that trained to meet that weight and have to fight opponents who have a significant weight advantage. Then they walk around thinking they are all that – ya, well I would be all that if I could be 10+ lbs over and use my weight to my advantage. Just got to sit on the guy and pound away lol…

    @terry r

    no worries Terry my head was in the game, but commission canceled my fight at 4 pm that day, felt there was to much differnce, we were both cool with it, and ready to go. Bierre came way overweight, so dont know how that was fare.

    @ Donald

    sure its not cool making my catch, you were not in my shoes that day, tried and failed, you learn from it. Just Lucky i had an awesome group of guys behind me and supporting me.
