It's all comes down to speculation I guess.
Looks like we'll never truly know 100% either way.
But heres what i do know:
1) weigh ins were done publically and anyone allowed to see. if you were present at the time of his weigh in i do not know
2) no complaints or concerns were raised with me before the fight or after the fight. As the official id expect you to let me know if you had a concern like a bigger opponent coming to the cage
3) if this was true i would be pissed off as i dont like refereeing fights were fighters have been lied too
i stated the weigh ins were public. i never said your lad or the opponent was there for that matter. i simply cant remember either way. i dont oversee that aspect of the show
i call fights 100% down the middle and if that upsets a promotor so be it.
maybe you should try being a professional and showing some respect, as i did to you and your fighter fight night. and if you have a complaint about a fight feel free to lodge it with me at the time, not months later on here
Brad, what did Katov weigh in pre fight then, seriously, is anyone going to answer that?
Dont give a shit if there was a face off pic pre fight or at weigh ins, fighters can weigh in seperate times, its not unheard of, just, can anyone actually state what weight Katov was pre fight on the scales?
If not, still, the fight shouldn't be overturned as there is no proof he was heavy.....or light....or a womble.
I apologize to you brad conway I took what you said the wrong way I thought you were saying that the weigh ins were made public for all to see - thought you meant that you were saying that katov weighed in there was no deception I thought you were sticking up for the promotion so I apologize to you brad.
As anyone can see from the pics of the texts where lloyd is saying to danny the guy was 8kg heavier and it goes down as a loss then danny replys where acknowledges the the screw job and like he says it was a mistake and all he can do is apologize that's him admitting to the lie.
The promotor and match maker have both gone on record as saying that they catorgorically deny ever sending an email to sherdog but as the promotor said in the text he will send sherdog an email personally and forward it to lloyd which he did and we uploaded it onto here it's there in black and white.
mate, i referee 2/3 shows a weekend. i have no idea what he weighed in at. i dont know if he weighed in at all. i was not asked to oversee that aspect of the show.
I dont know which fighters even weighed in off the top of my head. i presume that any reputable team would insist on seeing the opposition weighing in though?
for the record the other official who worked with me was Marc Goddard i believe, and he certainly wouldnt intentialy be involved in any dodgy business. We both take our officiating very seriously
