Shortchanged by the UFC? Cameron Saaiman Fights for Accurate Billing and Victory at UFC Vegas 89

UFC fighter Cameron Saaiman is calling out the organization for allegedly misrepresenting his height.

Saaiman believes the UFC has docked him a few inches, with his EFC billing of 1.76 meters (5’9″) shortened to 1.73 meters (5’8″) in the UFC.

This discrepancy was particularly evident during a recent face-off with Payton Talbott.

Taking to Social Media

Following his successful weigh-in, Saaiman took to social media to express his frustration: “Tomorrow, I get to do what I love… Thank you for all the love and support.

This will be my best performance to date.

@ufc please fix my height online, you guys are doing me dirty.”

Looking Forward to Redemption

Saaiman’s last fight ended on a disappointing note after his opponent missed weight.

This time, however, he’s eager to showcase his skills.

“I’m feeling great, like a million bucks,” he shared with UFC media.

“I’m so ready to make weight, and ready for the fight.

We’ve worked very hard for this…”

Lessons Learned from the Last Fight

Saaiman isn’t dwelling on the past.

“I learned a lot in that fight,” he acknowledges.

“We learn a lot in wins, but we learn so much more in losses…” He highlights the importance of learning from setbacks and returning stronger.

Respecting His Opponent

Saaiman isn’t taking his opponent, Payton Talbott, lightly.

He recognizes that Talbott’s laid-back demeanor shouldn’t be misconstrued as a lack of dedication.

“I think people actually underestimate how hard [Talbott] works,” Saaiman observes.

He anticipates an exciting fight, stating, “I don’t think either of us hesitated, so both of us are expecting a three-round war.”

Continuous Evolution

Saaiman acknowledges that both he and Talbott are constantly evolving as fighters.

“In terms of the athletes you saw on the Contender Series and the athlete you see now, I think the biggest difference is attention to detail,” he explains.

He credits the UFC’s high standards for pushing him to improve: “The UFC is the best in the world for a reason; it forces you to evolve quickly…”
