We have no idea if Braulio Estima made weight, but here’s what he told us…

Late Friday night, Orange County GracieFighter’s Jason Manly stated Braulio Estima came in 9 lbs overweight in his Brazilian jiu-jitsu supermatch with Nick Diaz which was slated to go down at the World Jiu-Jitsu Expo in Long Beach, California yesterday. The info spread on The Underground, fanboys created their hyper-complex conspiracy theories, then the morning after the debacle, Braulio Estima posted on his Facebook that he made weight, and that became verified fact.

Shortly after Nick Diaz pulled off a no-show to his highly anticipated fight against Braulio Estima, LayzieTheSavage did some investigative reporting, fact-checked his sources and found evidence that Braulio Estima is not exactly telling the truth regarding making the agreed upon weight of 180 lbs to compete against Nick Diaz.

Update: A lot of people are claiming Braulio Estima said ‘Lana,’ as in Lana Stefanac, a member of Team Gracie Fighter. LayzieTheSavage asked if it was ‘Ronda Rousey,’ Braulio Estima confirmed it. Estima’s false confirmation could be attributed to a communication barrier, or just the general noise in the place. We’re going to follow up with Lana Stefanac to see what actually happened.

Update: Here’s what LayzieTheSavage tweeted in regards to the Braulio Estima debacle.
