Sounds like a load of crap to me. Unless the guy drank 10 pounds of water the day before. You would die if you lost that much weight in a day. I know about cutting weight, 5-7 pounds in a day is about all you want to do, unless you dont require stamina.

Sherk obviously cut down to 155 because he wanted the title. He was smart about it he made 2 trail cuts from what I have heard. However if he could beat Matt or GSP he probably would have stayed at 170. He exploted the rules to his benifit. Anybody else can do the same thing, and I believe that Kenny used to fight at 185 so I dont really think that Sherks size was an issue.
