    During the weigh ins they clearly stated 156 as his weight, and he looked confused for a moment. Yet, nobody is talking about this. By how much will his purse be reduced? He must have had a bad cut, and it will clearly effect his performance.

    You can weight 1 pound over the weight class as long as its not a title fight.

    There's a one pound allowance for non-title fights.

    Edit: several people beat me to it

    Ah, ok, didn't know that. Both guys look slim. I always get the affect and effects wrong.

    Slightly off topic and completely pointless, but why not either have the LW limit be 156 or make guys cut to 155? "allowances" seem stupid

    You get a grace pound. You can weigh in at 156 in non-championship fights. Most fighters use it so weighing in at 156 is more common than at 155. Welcome to weigh ins.

    1 lb over is accepted as making weight. It's a buffer zone for your clothes, last meal, etc

    You're obviously new to combat sports. 1lb is allowed for non title fights, in boxing, mma, kick boxing, etc etc. Been this way for DECADES. Literally.

    If they change it to 156 then people will do the same thing just a pound heavier.
