The last 10 fighters to miss weight and their results




Is missing weight an advantage or disadvantage? Its the age old question. Except not really. Do fighters that miss weight have an added edge because they are clearly going to be bigger and probably stronger than their opponent? Or are they going to be tired from trying to make the cut and therefore gas early? Well I've done some research (I wish I spend as much time researching my uni work as I do UFC) and here are my findings:

Fighter Event Missed weight by Fought Result Method TIME/ROUND
Dennis Hallman 141 3.8 Makdessi W S 2.58/1
Shamar Bailey 139 3 Castillo L KO 4.52/1
Nick Pace 139 6 Torres L D 5.00/3
Tyson Griffin 137 3 Palaszewski L KO 2.45/1
Byron Bloodworth Live 5 3 Easton L KO 4.52/2
Ivan Menjivar 133 2 Pace W D 5.00/3
Nick Pace TUF 12 Finale 3 Campuzano W S 4.32/2
Efrain Escudero Fight Night 22 4 Oliveria L S 2.25/3
Thiago Alves 117 1.5 Fitch L D 5.00/3

I was going to go back further than this but I got bored and sleepy. Then bored again. Interesting that only 3 of the `0 guys actually won their fights. Of the 7 that lost 3 got KO'd and 3 were submitted. Only 3 guys in total went the distance after missing weight. Nick Pace has been involved in 3 missed weights out of the last 10. So he sucks.
