Missed weight info:
When a fighter signs a contract they are required to weigh-in the day before the event, and weigh a maximum 1.0 pounds more than their contracted weight. The exception to this is for title fights, where there is no permissible extra allowance. For example, a fighter contracted to fight a non-title fight in the Lightweight division, which is 155 lbs or less, can weigh as much as 156.0 lbs, while a fighter in a Lightweight Title fight can weigh a maximum of 155.0 lbs.
If a fighter misses weight a commission will typically allow them one additional hour to attempt to make that weight. If the fighter is unsuccessful in meeting their contracted weight, their opponent who makes weight has the option to not fight, as their opponent did not meet the requirements of the contract. If the opponent chooses to accept the fight, they are awarded a portion of the missed-weight fighter’s purse, typically 20%.
