Rory Markham has missed weight by 7 pounds at weigh-ins for his fight with Nathan Diaz. In order for the fight to take place it was moved to a middle weight contest. Diaz, who was set to debut at welter-weight, agreed to having the fight continue despite his opponent's weight advantage.
"It definitely is cause for concern when Markham missed weight. It will essentially be asking a guy to fight someone a weight class up with no notice. Markham will be over 200lbs by tomorrow night and it goes to show just how tough minded a guy like Diaz is to agree to continue." -Cesar
Wow 7lbs? That is a whole lot of weight....
Seems like Nate should have gotten more than 1K for that,
but good sport for being willing to fight him anyway.
