Or focus on both and have as many advantages as you can...

I probably was being sarcastic in the above post. I think you should flame me for it.

Oh I guarantee that Tito isn't the only one to be doing this. Most of these guys are putting on as much weight as they can after weigh-ins to get as much advantage as possible.


Thanks to Toxic for the Awesome Sig!

Even if the whole world is against you, one thing will never let you down. That thing is beer.

I was talkin to a guy who fights for ProTeam USA and he was telling me he trainned at ATT down here in Creek, they have like 10 other ATT schools down here now, smaller divisions of the svhool and they send their top guys and say they are gonna be trainning you lock you into a yr contract at 225 per month and then move that top fighter back to base camp in Coconut Creek.....essentially leaving just one of their blackbelts to teach the school that you just signed a 1 yr 225 per month contract.....sucks...

The reason I wrote all that is cuz he was showing me some of their 145 pound fighters and was telling me that they walk around at like 185....He says the ATT guys have cutting weight down to a science....

Makes sense when you think of Thiago Alves, this guy was also telling me that he had trained with Mike Brown and that guy walks at like 180....WOW

JUST Some FYI....

It seems most people here aren't really aware of the techniques and science behind weight cutting. I read a great article about it in the UK Fighters Only magazine, it's actually really difficult and many fighters consider it a sport in it's own right. I can't be assed to go in to depth about it, because I like knowing things that other people don't. It makes me feel big.

Isn't it mostly a few months on a strict diet that cuts out carbs and focuses on proteins, followed by a 2-3 day hard water weight cut?

I think it's the water cut that leaves people in disbelief. It's a weird concept when you don't understand or experience it.


IMO I'm not at all impressed by hearing 145lb'ers cut from 185. Maybe they should just say in fighting shape year round and cut 10-20lbs? You can't judge how good a fighter is by how out of shape he gets in the off season. Look at GSP, he's been known to cut from what... 183-186? It's because he stays in shape then cuts the normal water weight. Machida doesn't hardly cut water weight at all, just simply stays in shape at his natural weight.


Fighters like Alves and Rumble are rare and, to me, are fad fighters who will not have a chance to leave a 7-8 year legacy. Their bodies simply cannot handle that kind of cut that often while staying at peak health.

Don't underestimate the absorbancy of Tito's head. Dehydrated it's probably 100 pounds or so but fully hydrated 150.
