    1. I doubt if 3 pounds overweight had much to do with Roxy’s throwing ability. In judo, the women’s weight division jumps from Lightweight at 57kg (125.5 lbs) to Half middleweight at 63kg (139 lbs). Gabi Garcia outweighed Mackenzie Dern by almost 100 pounds in a bjj tournament and still lost to Dern. 30% of one’s purse is a pretty hefty fine these days, especially when taking the fight with relatively little notice. If you recall, Maia stepped in when the UFC pulled Carmouche to fight Valentina.

      1. 3 pounds is huge in a professional mma fight. Roxy fought 5 fighters who were overweight and lost 4 of them. Roxy hasn’t lost to anyone who made weight since 2016. Totally disappointing after waiting months to see my favorite fighter.
