Re: MMA Discussion Thread! (LET'S GET IT ON!)
I understand that rules are rules, but taking away a title shot for 0.2 is severe as fuck. Can't they model a system where any overness falling within the decimal point is punished with a fine? With constant last-minute injuries crippling cards, it doesn't help when relatively harmless technicalities do the same thing. I understand it from the standpoint of how determining when it becomes enough to offer leeway after a weigh-in miss can potentially get out of hand, but I think that the consequences for going over an negligable amount should be less severe. A reasonable fine for a negligable amount would at least keep the incentive for fighters to be as precise with their weight as possible.
Sadly the UFC doesn't really have say in this implimented structure, and I seriously doubt that the NYSAC have the promotional aspect of selling fights in mind.
