It seems Alves cut a lot of weight. Dont be surprised if he gasses tonight.
Even still, a gallon of water only weighs a little over eight pounds. So he was dehydrated by over three gallons of water? That's a hell of a dehydration.
If they weigh in too close to the fight, they could be fighting dehydrated, which could be pretty dangerous. The fluid that cushions your brain from impacts is almost all water, so any large dehydration is bad when getting hit in the head.
It would be a lot more complicated, but the commissions could use random tests to find out your real weight and body fat percentage, and then use that to determine what weight class they can be in.
