Last Minute UFC Update

In a shocking turn of events Joe 'diesel' Riggs failed to make the weigh in by 2 pounds. The fight between Matt Hughes and Joe Riggs will still take place but it will not be for the title. This will also change the format for a championship match of 5 rounds to a normal 3 round fight.

It is unbelievable that this happened. This is either a huge mental mistake or it could very well indicate something physically wrong with Riggs. These fighters are very well trained in the art of losing all the water weight out of their body. It is not uncommon for someone to mis weight when they 1st hit the scales. If that happens they get 20 minutes. It is VERY uncommon for someone to fail losing a pound or 2 ifthey get the 20 minute grace. Former wrestlers can tell you that 2 pounds is about 2 cups of spit, sweat or anything else you can squeeze out of your body. Riggs actually weighed in at 171, went away to drop the 1 pound, and came back at 172. Very odd.
