Rampage cuts some serious weight. Walks around at about 240 and fights at 205
Machida rarely comes in shredded but he's well capable of it at LHW
No idea how Jones manages to get to 205 and not look lethargic, he's a big dude

I wish fighters had to weighin right before the fight, but that will never happen. Too much money at stake with the possibility of fighters missing weight.

There are a few fighters that don't cut weight. I think Maynard puts on weight to make 155, lol.

Most fighters cut at least 10-20 pounds though to drop down a class -- ie walk at 180-190 but cut to 170 to make WW. Most fighters don't walk at exactly the limit of a class, and cutting a few pounds to drop a class isn't too difficult/taxing for most athletes, and can give an advantage against a smaller opponent.

It can be taxing on your body, but if it's done responsibly it's not too bad. If you attempt what Leben did against Munoz though, then that's another story. 20+ pounds in under 24 hours before weigh-in's is just asking to be gassed a day later at the fight.

I think you meant to say Edgar and not Maynard. Maynard cuts at least 15 lbs.

They were saying like 25-30 lbs, Alverez and Shields cut 15 to fight at LW and WW based on Bully Beatdown.
