VIVA – The splendor of One Pride Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) Fight Night 56, Saturday 12 February 2022, was a little tarnished. The reason is, one party for the championship belt was canceled.
The match was for the welterweight title between Windri Patilima and Natalex Munster. The reason is because Alex’s weight exceeds the provisions when the weigh-in procession was carried out on Friday night, February 11, 2022.
Yes, Alex weighs 81.7 kg or an excess of 4.6 kg. For information, the upper limit of body weight in the welterweight class is 77.1 kg. Meanwhile, the tolerance given is 2 kg.
However, both fighters want the duel to continue. However, the promoter did not allow him to compete for the championship belt.
Later, Windri and Alex will duel in the catchweight class exhibition party. That is, the welterweight championship belt will not change hands whoever the winner is.
“Alex is 4.6 kg overweight. That’s why we didn’t hold a party for the championship belt on the principle of justice,” said the Chairman of the One Pride MMA Jury, Max Metino, when contacted by VIVA, Friday, February 11, 2022.
