Nick Diaz failed to make weight for his EliteXC “Return of the King” bout against Mushin Corbbrey by more than 9 pounds but the fight will go on after the fighters agreed to fight at a catchweight of 168 pounds.
Diaz contacted the promotion and his opponent in advance of the weigh-ins to reach an agreement for the bout before hitting the scales. Knowing he would be unable to make make, Diaz and Corbbrey agreed to the 168-pound catchweight limit with Corbbrey receiving a portion of Diaz’s purse.
Corbbrey also failed to make weight for the bout, weighing in at 163.5 pounds, though this may be due to the catchweight agreement being in place before he had finished cutting weight for the main card fight. Diaz weighed in at 169.5 pounds for the scheduled 160 pound bout.
