Default Alves Misses Weight Again!

Quote:
OAKLAND, Calif. MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) was on scene and reporting live from today's official UFC 117 fighter weigh-ins, where all but one competitor made weight on the show.

Today's festivities took place at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif., the same venue that hosts Saturday's pay-per-view event.

Middleweight champ Anderson Silva (184.5 pounds) and fellow headliner Chael Sonnen (185) were on weight, but co-main-event fighter Thiago Alves was a half pound over and fined 20 percent of his purse.

Alves, who's struggled with weight-cutting in the past, weighed 171.5 pounds, a half pound over the 171-pound limit for his No. 1 contender's bout with Jon Fitch. Alves' fine is paid directly to Fitch.

Although reports surfaced earlier this week suggesting Alves was struggling with his weight cut, his manager, Malki Kawa, told MMAjunkie.com that the fighter weighed 177 pounds and expected no problems by the time weigh-ins rolled around.

I'm going to be a little ticked off if the UFC ever offers him another title shot at welterweight. He should be forced to move up to middleweight or get out of the UFC.

At least it was only 0.5 pounds this time. He almost made it.

It is pretty freaking ridiculous. I agree with Nate.

I gave him a pass the first time because stuff happens but him missing weight again is a big disappointment. He really needs to get his weight under control.

The part that was so funny about it was that just yesterday I saw him at the press conference where he played it down ( being over before) and said something about how people never let you live it down...flash forward 24 hours and he's standing there, not even wearing underwear and he's over
