Shocking News Week Continues: Paul Daley Misses Weight at BAMMA 7

“Missed it by this much.

Put on your surprised face, kids:  Paul Daley stepped on the scales just minutes ago for his welterweight contest this weekend at BAMMA 7, and was recorded six pounds over the 170 pound limit.  He has been given two hours to sweat out the remaining pounds.  His opponent, Jordan Radev, came in at 170 on the first try.

At this point, Paul Daley making weight the first try would be more of a story, as this now makes the sixth time (by our count) that Semtex has tipped the scales in his own favor.

Apparently, the issue this time is a problem with sauna availability.  If that excuse sounds familiar, look at you paying attention — we could just pinch your cheeks.  Clearly, the UK is years behind the rest of the world in steam room technology, although you’d think they could fly in a specialized consultant from Finland or something.

CagePotato has been unable to confirm that Anthony Johnson just sent a text message to Daley, telling him to “stop eating so much (spotted) dick.”

**Update**:  Despite being given two hours to cut the last six pounds, Daley said “fuck all that nonsense” and decided to compete at 176.  His opponent, Jordan Redev, has accepted a catchweight bout because, you know, he’s gotta eat.   Daley has reportedly been fined “a percentage” of his purse (awarded to Radev), but BAMMA is unwilling to share how much Daley was fined.

Two other fighters were heavy for the initial weigh-ins, and a malfunctioning sauna was blamed for weight issues, which led to BAMMA extending the time frame for the second weigh-in attempt to two hours instead of the customary one-hour period.  All 25 other fighters on the card made their weight limits.

Daley doesn't look that big to me for 170. I think he's just the world's shittiest weight cutter.

another example of an athlete being completely unprofesional. not only is it a slap in the face to the promotion but to your competitor. he busted his ass to make weight and you fail to do the same thing. i hope they fine the shit outta him.
