shogun said, "I think Frank is lying when he said state officials approved him to fight Kimbo and CBS blocked it. Unlike Japan, fights between guys in different weight classes are forbidden under the sanctioned MMA rules which EXC adheres to. That's why they said Seth was 205 1/2 pounds and not 205".
no, moron. they are not forbidden. only in title matches is it an absolute requirement. if you dont make the required weight for a title match, you can still fight in the match... just not for the title. also, they listed seth at 205.5 because that is what he weighed! you are allowed to go one lb. over on the weigh in. dude...check yourself.
