Some fighters walk around 20 lbs heavy getting ready for a fight. Then they diet down to 10-15 lbs ish. Then cut the final water right before the fight then gain most of it back right after weigh-ins...This allows the fighter to be heavier going into the fight. Hopefully heavier than the guy they are fighting. And that = size advantage...sometimes......
