    did the fighters have access to official scale day before weigh in or at least 5 or 6hrs prior to weigh in?

    really strange to see that many guys miss weight, and then several who did make weight are 1,2,3,4 pounds under…seems like something was up.

    The ones that missed weights were bad. Not a scale issue here gang.

    @Graham Based on your theory if the guys that were under versus the guys that were over was a scale issue, then the over guys would be even MORE over. It’s just simply not making weight.

  11. Graham Weenk says:

    was there proper access to official scale? at hotel or somewhere easily accessible to the traveling fighters? if so there is no excuse to miss, but if not..

    my theory is no access to official scale, so guys made weight based on their own scales which some weighed lighter some weighed heavier than official scale.

    the only other time i’ve seen weigh ins like this was when i had kurt southern fight in wreck mma years ago and there was no proper access to official scale. so weights were all over the map. based on luck of the draw… if your scale happened to match the official or weighed heavier you made weight if your scale weighed lighter then you were probably gonna miss weight.

    i’m not looking to insult the show, just an odd weigh in, i’m wondering if there was or was not scale access?

    simple question, and fighters are always hung out to dry on missed weights and take the heat for it. in the modern era of mma its rare to see this many misses and this many guys well under their weights

    There were 2 scales at Hotel both within .5 lbs of each other in lobby…every fighter had access to them…Craig weighed in on both in the morning at 263…come weigh ins 261…so scales at hotel in my opinion were fairly accurate…

    I see what you’re saying Graham. Makes sense. Grande Prairie is a pretty solid commission so who knows what the deal is.

    I would agree with Shane. Close enough that the missed weights were actually missed.

  16. Graham Weenk says:

    IMO official scale access should be mandatory by every commission, 24 hours prior to weigh in right up until the scale is needed at the weigh in. I know that is the standard in Edmonton for the old AMMA shows AFC and MFC.

    then zero excuse for missing weight and fines for missing (as there is) and suspensions from weight classes for habitual weight missing… but without the official scale access there is always going to be an excuse for missing and hard to fine a guy, or suspend them from that division. and guys who don’t want to put the work in to make the weight will always have that justification for missing. like getting a speeding ticket in and unmarked speed zone.

    just my thoughts, i hate to see missed weights, bad for fighters, bad for shows, bad for the sport

  17. Shane BTP Mountney says:

    OK Graham…I see your point but the official scale was made accessible.. to all fighters..at least an hr and a half prior at venue…we were the first there…so this I know for fact…I’m not say in guys missed on purpose…but I can’t see any issues with any of the scales…again just my opinion

  18. Rodeo Star says:

    If the scales were only accessible 1.5 hours before the weigh-in as BTP said, then this is why the weight of the fighters fluctuated so much and this is an error by the commission/event. Weight cutting begins to take place at least the evening before and an official scale is needed 24 hrs attend of the weigh-ins as Weenk said

  19. Stevie says:

    The commission obviously made the scale available. I don’t think it needs to be available 24 hours in advance. But GP from what I hear is pretty good and friendly. Fighters know they need to make a certain weight and if they wait to the last day, that’s the risk they run. Fluctuated weights sure, but we’re talking 3 to 5 pounds, not 1 or 2 pounds. I don’t feel it would have made a difference here.

  20. Bdc says:

    2 pounds on scales they provide makes a diff if ur comming from out of town and had weigh yourself with ur own scale and that was 4lbs differnt. Now you have to cut another 6 pounds in a few hours. Not saying this happened but there shouldnt be any difference between scales the commission is providing.

  21. Rodeo Star says:

    Half of this card was 3-5 pounds over or under the contracted weight. Clearly the lack of accessibility to the fight scale with enough time prior to weigh-ins was a major issue. Obviously a promoter will disagree that a mistake was made by them affecting the final weights. You can either run the weigh-ins as this event did and have many missed weights or you an run in professional, properly by having a scale available at the very least, the evening before. But going by past events in Alberta, I don’t expect very much from their commissions and some of their promotions. I guess all that matters is everyone gets paid and there are 2 people in a cage fighting each other, no matter what skill level

  22. Shane BTP Mountney says:

    OK guys again scales were made available all day…we checked Craig’s weight constantly… on 2 different scales that said he was same weight…with his clothes on…when we got to weigh ins we checked again and he was same as hotel scales fully clothed…when he weighed in…in his glitch officially then and only then was there a 2 lb difference…again can’t see the scales at hotel and the commission scale being the problem…but hey who am I to argue…

    Hot debate. What do you think? Thumb up 2 Thumb down 7

  23. Graham Weenk says:

    scale available 24hr prior simply needs to be a standard commission rule across the board. let the pro’s be pro’s and the guys missing have zero excuses.

    an hour to an hour and a half prior to weigh in at weigh in venue is useless. If a guy gets to the venue finds he’s 2lbs heavier on official scale than on his he is screwed. especially if he was shuttled there. there is no way to have time to leave weigh in venue, get to a place to cut weight, and then drop 2 more lbs (as everyone who has cut knows those last 2lbs are very stubborn) and be back in time for weigh ins.

    guys are losing 20% of their pay over missed weights when they had no way to be certain if they were or were not on weight until it was too late to do anything about it.

    the solution is simple, AFC did it, MFC does it, WSOF does it, official scale at hotel minimum 24hrs prior to weigh in. takes out the guess work, lets fighters and coaches do their job.

    or insist that an hour is plenty, not learn from this and put all blame on the fighters…a certain other show i mentioned earlier took the blame the fighters approach and we all saw the results, time after time on the same promotion having ridiculous amount of veteran fighters missing weight.

  24. Stevie says:

    Shane has confirmed that the scales were not the issue, so unless Craig Hudson magically weighs different than other humans, that about sums it up. I do see both sides of this, and could see the scale made available the morning of a weigh in being reasonable.

    what happens when 2 fighters miss weight? do they still get penalized?

  26. Allen hope says:

    Scales should be available 24 hours before weigh ins a fighter should be able to weigh himself on that scale before he starts cutting weight . Nothing worse then cutting weight all day and thinking your on weight only to find out a hour and half before weigh ins your scale was 2 or 3 pounds out from the official scales . Unless you have cut weight before you have no idea how mentally hard that is on a guy

  27. Graham Weenk says:

    Hudson came in 4 under, at heavyweight chances are he didn’t need to cut or way overcut…that is very different from non heavyweights who all generally need to cut substantially.

    Chances are if he did cut his goal was 265 not 261…I would imagine anyway

    Cut an extra 4 lbs lol sounds like a great idea, fuck that i would never cut an extra 4 pounds thats just silly if you are given a proper scale to weigh in on 24 hrs before the event

    4 pounds for a big heavyweight is no more than 10-20 mins in the bathroom and a sports section(or any reading material)

    Hey guys there were two scales left available all day. Even Justin the promoter knew when we said the glass one was off what we were talking about. 4guys used that scale Delgado was 132 on the scale,i was 206.8 we used it 90minutes before weighins. Cody too when he got on it said 206 exact. Then at the weighins we were all over,delgado the scale said was 132 weighed in 134.4. There were scales provided,i think cause they got moved around and into different rooms and surfaces just knocked it out. But they did provide 2scales at hotel & the actual weighins scale was available at weighin venue if u had a ride at 3pm 3hrs before weighins. It was just an off scale. In my case i didnt even cut that much and could have done 3 easy in 90mins. I think Cody could have too had we known. Because they left it,i made the mistake as taking what it said. My bad from that aspect.
