The topic of fighters missing weight reared its ugly head again at the WEC 36 weigh-ins. Paulo Filho failed miserably to make the 185 requisite for his WEC middleweight championship bout against Chael Sonnen.
Fighters who come in over the weight limit never fail to make headlines. From Gina Carano, Travis Lutter or Gabe Ruediger; robust fighters become lead stories instantaneously after stepping off the scales. However, a champion not making weight? It is hard to believe that being a possibility in any major organization. Essentially, it should never be an issue.
