Wait... Hominick didn't make weight for the championship fight either. Is it because it's in Canada that he's allowed to come in a quarter pound over?

Did you notice that Aldo looked Hominick in the eyes.

Usually he just stares down.

you can be 146, 206, 171 don't you?

I thought one pound over is alright.

I don't get the Hominick-title-fight-weight-issue --> aren't you given a 1lb allowance? He weighed in at 145.25lb, and the limit is 146lb ... ? I'm confused.

Thanks to limba for this AWESOME sig

There is no one pound allowance for title fights.

Edit: I just found out the commission re-announced Hominick at 145 pounds, Joe just didn't say it. It seems there was an issue with the scale.

Here's an article.

And here's what I found on another forum:

Quote:
Hominick was actually announced as 145.25 pounds, but the Ontatio Athletic Commission ultimately decided the challenger was actually on weight. An OAC official initially told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) that Hominick was allowed to compete in a title fight, which does no factor in the customary one-pound allowance, because he was still wearing his fight shorts at just one-quarter pound over the contracted weight, and the house music was rattling the scale.

The hell was up with Jake Ellenberger?

Dude looked like he was sent to kill Pierson.
