if i weigh 155

What should i fight at? I usually walk around anywhere between the high 140s to low 150s. SHould i just go 145, or put some real work in and drop down to 135. Also, i'm 5' 11 so fighting at 135 would make me look like a giant probably, although it would of course have advantages.

shamboner has a little shameless behaviour in the pastshamboner has a little shameless behaviour in the past
from my experience i would try to put on more muscle and possibly fight at 145 walking around at 160 or so. If you were to fight at 135 you would tower over most other fighters which gives advantages but also has its disadvantages. In the end its what ever you feel comfotable at if u think you can stay strong at 135 (i imagine at 140lbs and 5' 11" your pretty thin not much fat to loose it will be alot of water). just my opinion.

Are you a ripped or a 'soft' 155er?

Ripped: add some bulk and cut to 145

Soft: Lose weight, add some bulk and cut to 135.

Go the other direction, add a hundred and ten pounds and fight at heavyweight, they will never see it coming. Sometimes the most fun way to do things is through the back door...something like that anyway. Really though, I would focus much more on developing actual skill then worrying about how much weight to cut and other factors like that when you are first starting out. I think that its far more important then concentrating on weight until you reach a highly competitive level and start needing to grasp for little advantages here and there. Just my cent and a half.

I'd fight at 155. Get some experience in. Test your stregnth against other fighters.

Began packing on muscle and cut to 155 before fights.

Fight at your natural weight for as long as you can though to avoid any bad cuts and or unneccessary dehydration or weight misses.

sorry i haven't been on here in since i asked that, thanks for all the advice. I'd been training mma whenever i could afford to for years, the reason i asked then, was because i was likely to have a fight 2 months after. i am working on adding muscle and then deciding what to cut after i weigh more with muscle thanks guys.
