I'm sure there has been a thread on this sometime before, but I can't find one.
I believe weigh ins should take place an hour before the fight.
If a fighter is supposed to weigh 155 pounds, then when they fight, they should damn well weigh 155 pounds. It's especially unfair that these big guys can lose so much weight and fight guys so much smaller than them because they have a whole day to rehydrate and gain back lost weight.
Also, guys would be much more hesitant to cut excess weight because they would be more worried about their performance, so it would be better and healthier for the fighters.
It's not like we are gonna lose great bouts if the heavier people in a weight class move up. GSP fighting in middle weight would be great. Silva in LHW???
You know what they say
"If you don't weigh in, you don't wrassle"
Discuss the pro's and cons of UFC weight cutting policies.
