2/23 K-1 MAX Japan Tournament - Andy Ologun Does NOT Make Weight

Monday 23 February 2009

A bit of controversy at yesterday's weight-in. Andy Ologun did not make the weight of 70kg. He was 800gram over, and this puts a K-1 Rule that I was not aware of in effect. Fighters that are less than 1 kg over gets 1 point deducted. Less than 2kg over and they gets 2 points deducted, more than 2kg over and you are not fighting.

This means that Andy Olugun will go into his fight with Taishin Kohirumaki with 1 point disadvantage. Kohirumaki was not impressed and said "Everyone works hard to make weight, it is unprofessional to come in over."

From memory, it is not the first time Andy Ologun has had problems making weight.
