    Not sure if this will run or not. Here is one of the paragraphs I submitted on the IFC show:

    “One of the other fights may be in jeopardy. IFC World Women’s Lightweight Champion Jacqueline Andrade is supposed to be fighting IFC World Women’s Middleweight Champion Jennifer Howe for Howe’s belt. The dividing line between these two weight classes is 135 lbs with Light Heavyweight going from 135-149.99. Jennifer, manager Monte Cox, and Andrade’s manager/trainer Cesar Gracie report Andrade is not able to make 135. It should be noted that Andrade just joined Cesar’s about a month ago, several weeks after signing to do this fight, so Cesar isn’t at fault. Cesar states the fight will either happen at 145 for Andrade’s Light Heavyweight belt or not at all while Jennifer and Cox are trying to adhere to the original agreement and force Andrade to cut to 135 or pull out. According to Cesar this is a result of a mis-communication between IFC President Paul Smith and Andrade and currently she walks around at 148. Paul could not be reached for comment.”

    There is a second paragraph to this topic but let’s see if it runs first.

    Feeling like Charlie Brown trying to punt Lucy’s football,

    This is sad to hear but anyone that knows Jenn Howe knows that she will not fight over 135….. This is not just something made up but as far as I can remember this is a must.. I really respect Jenn for this rule althought she trains hard and wants to fight…

    I don’t know what is going to happen with this, but to say I won’t fight over 135 is wrong. I fought Leah Hamilton who was 149, Jennifer Palmer 154, Kelly McDaniels 186, & Sara Patterson 168. The weight is not the point. The point is, she said 135. We offered to fight at 140. From what I understand she said no. She wanted to fight at 135, for my title. We argued that she could not make it, but from what I’m told she insisted she could make it. In fact she was suppose to fight Amanada at 135 and came in to heavy.
    I was informed last friday she was down to 141 and couldn’t cut anymore. This to me is laziness. How can you not cut 6 pounds in a week. Come on I’ve cut 11 in two days befor. Now I’ve not talked to her about this, but if it happened the way I’m told you can’t just change the rules to suit your needs as you see fit. If you want to fight girls smaller than you, you have to cut the weight.
