Diego Sanchez came in a few pounds over Friday night for his match this evening with Takanori Gomi at UFC on FUEL TV: Silva vs. Stann. “The Dream” went into detail on Twitter as to the exact reason he missed 155 pounds.
“It’s complicated made a mistake in my distilled water cut,” Sanchez posted. “Then in AM I cut all day last 2 lbs were not coming out period.”
Sanchez went on to say that it wouldn’t have mattered had he tried to keep cutting the final two pounds because “I had no more to lose I had been at it since 6 a.m. Lesson learned what sucks is if I was in our country this would have never happened. Can you believe they don’t have distilled (water).”
The former UFC contender will forfeit 20-percent of his fight purse to Gomi for missing weight, but the bout will go on.
“Gomi better not be crying I missed weight, after I win because those 2 lbs cost (me) 24 thousand dollars,” Sanchez posted. “If I could have cut it I would have :(”
