After a no-contest bout due to an accidental eye poke between champion Ben Askren and Luis Santos went down at ONE Championship 26 in April, the two were set to fight again Friday in Singapore. However, Santos not making weight on Thursday was a huge issue in the title fight. Askren offered to fight Santos if he were to weigh in again on fight day at no more than 190 pounds. The Brazilian again failed to make the agreed upon weight.
ONE Championship CEO Victor Cui expressed great frustration with Santos on Twitter.
I'm disgusted. Sapo fails to make weight then despite Askren offering a fight at 190lbs, Sapo still refuses. Completely unprofessional #ONE— Victor Cui (@victoronefc) November 13, 2015
@victoronefc Was the deal for him to weight in at 190 come fight-time? Didn't he only weigh a pound or two over?— Mike Skytte (@MikeLovesTacosX) November 13, 2015
@MikeLovesTacosX he missed weight first go. Then Ben offered him at 190lbs by 1pm today. Still leaving Sapo 9+ hrs to recover before tonight— Victor Cui (@victoronefc) November 13, 2015
