6

MMA H.E.A.T.’s Karyn Bryant spoke via Skype with UFC Featherweight Ricardo Lamas and heard what he had to say about his upcoming UFC 225 fight with Mirsad Bektic. Ricardo talks about the stylistic match-up, whether or not he studies film of his opponents and what improvements he’s seen in his game since first joining the UFC. In addition, Ricardo explains why he believes that fighters who don’t make the contracted weight for a fight should lose the entirety of their “show money,” and should also be suspended from their intended weight class for a period of time.

  1. I'd say the fighter should receive a fine of 10% of his total purse (including any bonuses) up to being 5 pounds over the weight limit, at that point the fight is called but instead of the record reflecting a NC the fighter not making weight record's should reflect a loss with a win going to the fighter that did the training and made the weight. But I would like the weigh ins happen right before they step in the cage. So when they fight started we'd see 3 fighters that sre the same weight.
