UFC Belem has lost its co-main event.

Pedro Munhoz failed to make weight for his co-main event bout with John Dodson on Friday morning, coming in four pounds overweight, and MMA Fighting has learned that Dodson has decided not to take the fight.

Four pounds and Dodson declined? Dudes on a losing streak and this doesn't make me happy and I doubt the UFC is either as this card is garbage.

Iirc the guys not making weight have won more than lost recently. Four pounds isn't much but I'm not totally shocked he didn't go for it.

I'm fine with him declining the fight. It may only be 4 pounds over today but when they put the weight back on it'll be a lot more come fight night. Plus, he didn't have to kill himself trying to cut that extra 4 pounds so he'll still be fresh as a daisy come fight night....which is probably why he didn't try to cut that extra 4, it would likely have affected his performance. Imo, that is why the overweight fighters have been winning of late, they're still able to perform to their highest ability since they didn't have to kill themselves trying to cut those extra pounds to make it a fair fight. Also, Dodson is on a losing streak and I think it would a bad idea to accept this fight against Munhoz. Before this, I had Dodson picked and was going to parlay him, but now had this fight gone on I would have taken him out of my parlay and maybe even switched my pick.

Props to Green for still taking on Prazeres who also missed by 5 pounds, but a loss for Green isn't as bad as a loss for Dodson, with the position both men are in right now.

My only question is will there be another hot bout selected with it being so close to fight night? I know it's locked after 48 hours to the event so idk if another fight can be made the hot bout, even if wanted.

He didn't even try to make weight. 4 pounds turns into 20lbs weight advantage come fight time.

I don't blame Dodson at all, they signed a contract to fight at an agreed weight and even though I like Munhoz, this is totally unprofessional and it's bullshit that you miss weight by 4 fucking pounds, he didn't even make an effort.

I think there has to be a bigger penalty for missing weight, dock 50% of their damn purse and see how many people miss weight and see how many people start fighting at their actual weight class.

Munhoz looked way bigger than Dodson and multiply that even more on fight day

Why should they fire him? Just wondering. Because he declined a Fight against a guy that came in at a Featherweight bout instead of the Bantamweight limit?
