Missing Weight Suspensions?

“Maybe this has been suggested before but I have a way to stop fighters from missing weight.

Afterwards, the fighter who missed weight should be suspended just as if he had failed a drug test.”

– UFC, Strikeforce, and current Sengoku fighter Nick Thompson on a potential solution to the growing problem of fighters missing weight, yet only relinquishing a small percentage of their purse.
