Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight No. 1 contender, Thiago Alves, missed weight for his lightweight debut against Jim Miller at the UFC 205 pay-per-view (PPV) event, which took place earlier this month (Nov. 12, 2016) inside Madison Square Garden in New York City.
The result was a mandatory time out.
Per source, Thiago Alves was also suspended three months for missing weight by NYSAC. If you miss weight in NY, it's automatic suspension.— Brett Okamoto (@bokamotoESPN) November 22, 2016
"It’s normal for the New York boxing commission to do that," Alves told MMA Fighting. “But I’ll be back in March at 155 pounds. The food poisoning a week before the fight fucked me. My weight wouldn’t go down. But I’m feeling better, and we’ll go to 155 again."
