what about bj and pulver?


so melendez didnt make weight but that doesnt mean anything considering its not a title fight? or does he lose a portion of his payment?

He gives 5% to Joe and 5% to the athletic commision I believe

Given his background and now his correct prediction about Melendez's weight I'm going to say Joe Lauzon is the smartest person in MMA and maybe the world. That's impressive. I heard he taught Stephen Hawking everything he knows, but that's just a rumor.

that sucks for Melendez, having to give 10% of his purse to Joe...but at least they are letting that fight happen. of all the undercard fights, that's the one i most want to see. serves Melendez right for not making weight...Joe will pummell his ass!

BJ looked in phenominal shape too! can't wait for this fight...a war indeed :grinsmile1:
