Paul Daley And Ricco Rodriguez Fail To Make Weight For BAMMA 5

Along with UFC 127 tomorrow night, there’s also British MMA action in the form of BAMMA 5 to look forward to.

Unfortunately the main event, which features Paul Daley Vs Yuya Shirai will no longer be a title fight after Daley failed to make weight for the bout earlier today.

Apparently problems locating a sauna were believed to be behind Daley coming in .4lbs overweight, though it should be noted that the Brit has now failed to make weight on five separate occasions in recent years.

Meanwhile Ricco Rodriguez also failed to make the 215lb limit set for his co-main event fight with James McSweeney, coming in 2lbs heavy.

The show must go on though, and British fans can watch the action live on SyFy tomorrow evening, while the rest of the world can purchase a live internet stream for $10.

Check out the official BAMMA 5 weigh-in results below.
