Bellator 44 Fighter Misses Weight
 
As posted by a writer from 5 Knuckles:

So I didn't think this needed it's own story on the actual website because I doubt anyone was really looking forward to this fight tonight.

Anyway Anthony Morrison weighed-in at 146.5 pounds last night. Just a tad over for a featherweight.

Except his fight was scheduled for BANTAMWEIGHT.

The dude weighed in 10.5 pounds overweight. That's absolutely ridiculous. His fight with Goldsby has now been cancelled.
How ridiculous is that????

Seriously, that cracked me up.

Haha, that is quite funny. Sucks for his opponent though.

I'm sure dude is cool with it. It was a qualifier for the next tourney, and dude is now qualified without having to fight.

Also, I am fairly sure that he still gets his "show" portion of his pay.

If not the win portion as well. I know the UFC has made a habit of paying it's fighters their full pay when their opponents are asshats like that. I would bet many other MMA orgs follow suit with that.

He would have been better off to have faked a injury than to pull that crap.
