The Effects of Cutting Weight

Here are 2 pictures that display the tole cutting weight can take on a fighter. Lutter looked like a bag of shit at the weight in yesterday. I seriously doubt he'll be running anywhere near 100% when he fights Silva tonight. I expect total domination.

I have always thought the weigh ins should be RIGHT BEFORE the fights... So that fighters had to fight in their NATURAL weight class and fights were more fair.

MikeTheTyke has a little shameless behaviour in the past
THe day before thing is for saftey, it comes from boxing: Guys will still cut for the day of the fight, and they will go in dehydrated and get hurt (getting hit in the head when dehydrated can cause brain damage more easily). So, they have the weight in the day before. There is no easy way around it. Unless, for instance, you are weighed like a week before and you have to weigh in at a certain number, close to fighting weight. Then on the day of the fight they are weighed again. Since most guys cut weight though, it might be better if everybody fought in their natural weight classes.
