[ Live Coverage: Morales vs Garcia / Judah vs Paris ]

Some drama in Kirkland dressing room. He cant have his hands wrapped til he pees for commission. But he has been unable to pee. ... James Kirkland pee update: Texas says Kirkland can fight without peeing but he must pee after the fight or purse will be held.

So the fight is not in jeopardy, as was originally floated around for a few minutes, but there's some extra drama for you heading into the fights.
