Like 175 to 190 anywhere in that range. Thats after they eat and fatten up a little after a fight some reach. Then in there fight camp they will probably lose 10 maybe 15 pounds.

Do you mean when they are about to fight or after they have fought? Most guys gain some weight after they fight. If your asking where do they start cutting from I would say 180 to 165

i dunno but i heard sherk's fought at 185....and you def know he's fought at 170 and had to cut so that gives you an idea.....him and hermes franca are huge....same with melvin...so they probly cut a lot.....but then theres guys like pulver who can walk around at 155 without cutting so its varied i guess

Sherk, huge lightweight, says he walks around at 175, so I highly doubt there's anyone weighing over 180 at lightweight...

I believe Georges st Pierre walks around at about 185 and he is considered big for welterweight so I dont think there are any fighters cutting much more than 20 pounds...

Fun trivia: In danish "kamp" means "match" or "fight". So Martin Kampmann really lives up to his name.

It is entirely possible that they do walk around at 185ish, depending on Body fat, diet, etc. I used to cut from 150 to 129 wrestling, and I was not fluffy when I started the process.
Having said that, I fight at 150 now and walk around at 155ish. I don't like cutting weight, did it for too friggin long, and this is not my career.
