He was over by 4 pounds, had two hours to lose it then was over by 3.25 pounds. I absolutely hate it when a fighter is over by that much. I hate it when they miss weight in general, but I can at least understand if it’s a pound or less and they just can’t get it off. Being 4 pounds overweight shows that you either didn’t take the weight seriously enough or you knew from the beginning you couldn’t get down to the weight.
You are getting paid a lot of money for fighting. Corrales will have to fork over some money to Machado. I think each pound over should be 25% of your purse. Then if you pull out because of weight issues, you owe them a percentage of what the challenger was supposed to make.
