BJ @ 170
Guida admitted to not cutting much; if I recall I think he walks around at 160
Jenns Pulver would fight at like 152 and that was his natural weight
Does Rashad cut much? I can't see him cutting down too much weight.

LW- Frankie Edgar doesn't cut much
WW- Diego Sanchez
MW - IDK most of those guys cut a ton Swick didn't cut anything when he fought there.
LHW - Machida is a smaller guy and so is Wanderlei.

Bisping said he never had to cut for his first fight at MW maybe he just lost weight rather than cut weight.

I was thinking of the first time I saw him fight, he weighed in at 280, I guess he got off the juice.

Actually he fought Matt Hammill at 210, cutting 5 pounds is nothing. He plans on putting on more weight for his next fight, though.

You don't put back every pound you cut the night before the fight, before cutting weight Franklin is 215-220

Wanderlei Silva doesn't have to cut much weight. I remember he weighed in fully dressed with tshirt and cap for the Jardine fight.

BTW don't forget some of the huge HWs still have to cut. Off the top of my head, Brock Lesnar and Tim Sylvia both have to cut to come in below 265. Come fight night, each one of those guys will weigh over 280 lbs. Good luck with that 285lb monster Randy.

I know it'll never happen, but I wish the UFC would list the fight night weights rather than the bogus numbers they list now. I suppose they don't to publicize how big some of the size mismatches are, the commissions are content to look the other way as well. Fighter safety? Yeah right.
