Shayna Baszler: “They can’t keep protecting her!” fighthype interview
“I mean, you come in overweight for a fight…okay…two fights, it’s getting serious, but she’s never made weight for a fight ever! For people to say, “She’s fighting out of her weight class,” well, when she tried to fight at 135, she made 139 and when she tried to fight at 140, she made 144.5 so I don’t think it has anything to do with her fighting out of her weight class. It’s her not having what it takes to get down there and it sucks because it kind of traps people because it’s like, okay, you can not take the fight, but everybody knows you have sponsorship deals and you don’t get the win bonus. You just get the show money and a lot of times, fighters are making more money on sponsorship deals than the actual fight. You’re kind of stuck taking the fight anyway so for her to get on interviews and say, “I’ve never had anyone back out so it’s not a issue.” Well, it is an issue because I think it’s seriously disrespectful. I spent the time to diet down and cut weight and I expect my opponent to respect the fact that I suffered.”
Cant understand what she is talking about? Check them out.
Gina Carano(135) vs. Leiticia Pestova (124 )
Gina Carano(139) vs. Rosi Sexton(135)
*Dr.Sexton is the TOP fighter at 125 lbs class.
Gina Carano (150) vs. Elaina Maxwell (151)
At AmaElite? they must have videos of weigh-in, watch what happened at weigh-in of “EliteXC – Destiny” and “EliteXC – Uprising”
And last time was 144.5 lbs for 140+1 allowance. Go figure.
Again, Look at boxing`s weight Classes
147 lb (66.7 kg) Welterweight
140 lb (63.5 kg) Super lightweight
135 lb (61.2 kg) Lightweight
