Thats not really how it works.
Its helps cut water weight. If you are really heavy then water weight wont be enough. And IF you are very heavy and you cut purely water weight especially using Drostanolone. Chances are you are going to be taken to the hospital before you ever step in to the octagon.
We all imagined Bonnar to be much bigger then Anderson and Anderson to be faster. If they had a full training camp then everything would have been exactly the same. Bonnar would make weight and be the bigger guy while Anderson would be a little smaller.
So he basically just did what he had to do to make weight since it was a short notice fight and he was retired. (I see no problem there. Anyway that is my opinion and i am going to sleep. No one is going to make me care about something just because they care about it.)
Also I was actually surprised at how close they were in size. I expected Bonnar to be alot bigger then Anderson but he wasnt.
Did you see Bonnar's arms? They were no similar in size. Maybe in stature. But Bonnar was ripped. Where as Anderson was a pudgy, slightly out of shape, little weight cut size. When Anderson fights at 205 he is soft. Bonnar's arms when he flexed at weigh ins were huge. The pic of Bonnar punching Silva...his arm is raging with muscle.
Why would Bonnar take a KNOWN "water cutter" when MO was JUST popped for it...and it was all over MMA news? If he had trouble making 205 on short notice...why didn't he simply as the UFC and ANderson to make it a HW fight. Or a fight of 210? Neither would have gave a shit. It wasn't for a title. It was just a fun fight.
Instead he opted to use a banned substance? Makes NO sense. He is Bonnar. He is at the tail end of his career. If the cut was that bad he should have asked for a better weight. It was on short notice...all partys would have understood. Save some dignity instead of blatantly cheat.
