Electric welterweight Paul "Semtex" Daley last night failed to make weight for his fight against Nick "The Goat" Thompson at Maximum Fighting Championship (MFC) 20: "Destined for Greatness," coming in a half-pound over the 170-pound division limit.
It is the second time in as many fights that the English striker has had trouble on the scale -- he came in a whopping four pounds heavy for his bout against John Alessio in December 2008, which he won via technical knockout.
The fight will go on as planned; however, Daley will forfeit 25 percent of his fight purse to Thompson for the slip.
Here are the complete "Destined for Greatness" weigh-in results (via Sherdog.com):
Ryan Ford (171) vs. Pat Healy (169)
Antonio McKee (155) vs. Derrick Noble (155)
Paul Daley (171.5) vs. Nick Thompson (170)
Rory Singer (185.5) vs. Bryan Baker (182)
Roger Hollett (204) vs. David Heath (204)
Solomon Hutcherson (185.5) vs. David Mewborn (185)
Simon Marini (155) vs. Ryan Machan (155)
Alain Hernandez (155) vs. Evan Sanguin (153)
Donovan Foley (151) vs. Josh Russell (151)
Richard Symons (200) vs. Brad Zazulak (197)
Note fighters are allowed a one-pound allowance over the division limit.
In addition to the great match up between Daley and Thompson, two MFC titles will be on the line this evening. MFC welterweight champion Pat "Bam Bam" Healy will defend his title against Ryan "The Real Deal" Ford and lightweight champ Derrick Noble will defend his belt against Antonio McKee.
MFC 20 will air live on HDNet later tonight (Friday, Feb. 20) at 10 p.m. ET from the River Cree Resort and Casino in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
