The “Karate Hottie’s” opponent Tyra Parker misses weight:
The first hiccup came as Michelle Waterson, who weighed in at 111.4 pounds for her 112-pound bout, had her opponent, Tyra Parker, come in well over the limit at 116 pounds. Waterson’s camp still agreed to take the fight, although Parker will have to pay Waterson a penalty for every pound over the limit.
“Michelle has worked really hard for this fight, so we’re going to do a penalty fight,” said Waterson’s corner, Julie Kedzie. “We just didn’t want to take this fight away from Michelle. She’s worked too hard.”
Tyra is 0-1 so I know we shouldn’t expect all that much from her in or out of the cage, but still … one would hope that organizations like Strikeforce would book people who are capable of hitting the weightclass they’ve been booked for.
