I just watched Gomi vs Guillard. The fight was at 160 and of course Guillard still missed weight. The penalty is you begin the fight with a red card which is 50% of your purse.
I wish the stateside commissions would do something similar. Miss by half a pound and you just lost half of your entire purse. Show and win with every dollar going to your opponent. This stupid **** where the commission gets a cut is BS.
If you are over especially by 8 pounds you shouldn't be allowed to do what Dern did either. She still had an hour to cut more weight. She chose not to cut anymore because she wanted to hit up the snack stand and start re-hydrating. Her opponent weighed in last so Dern, already a full weight class bigger had more time to balloon back up to 140 for a 115 pound fight. She should have had to stay in the back until the dead line and suffer, same with Chiesa against Pettis.
Even beyond weight issues I think a card system would be good for everyone. If I'm reffing Lewis vs Ngannou those two would have done that chit show for free. I'd request a deck of yellow cards after the 1st round and they would start flying.
