By the way I didn't get to watch all the weigh ins what happened with the Hermes Franca Match u did they up the weight for some reason ?
They agreed to make it a catchweight of 159. Griffin clearly wants the money and exposure more than he cares about the three pounds. Smart guy imho. He could go home instead, but what would that gain him?
