    i hate weigh-ins the day before. they should make weigh-ins the day of the fight. that way you get rid of all this 20 lb. dehydration bullshit. if they do it the day of then if you want to cut they you can but you'll go into the fight dehydrated.

    Thats Medically unethical and due to State Athtletic standards if they were to allow a fighter to go inot a fight dehydrated the company could lose their State Athletic License and be fined and sued medically if something were to happen to the fighter…remember the fighters are the most impotant and looking out for their well being is paramount. Hence the day before wiegh ins wiich give all fighters a chance to recover and be well hydrated before the fight.

    well in wrestling on most levels the weigh ins are like 3 hours before a match. i don't know about olympics tho. The fights are just a higher quality being the day before.

    Wrestling has different catagories and it isnt a paying sport…wrestlers do not make money so therfore its regulated differently and falls under different laws.

    Fight at their own weight well the majority of fighters do fight at or around the same weight but for some they have to cut wait to fight in that class and since the fighters get paid they must be taken care of differently as far as laws go etc…i dont know the rules of shit i just know there isnt a way around it and i see your point but if we had that then do you realize how many fighters either couldnt fight ever of would have to fight in a weightclass where they would get creamed or they would have to have a weightclass about every 15lbs as the wieght difference some fighters would have to make up would be too much.

    There is no real point to fighting at ther weigh in weight….no matter how you do it most fighters will end up being about the same wieght come fight time except for your true HWGHTS at 265 limit will always have that edge on the other lighter HWGHTS.

    No I understand that Tim, My point was just that being in wrestling and Greco Roman my whole life the way the weigh ins are structured really hurts some wrestlers because they are not 100 percent because of how soon before the match they have to make weight. I think the way they do it in fighting is much better. They cannot have same day weigh ins also because it brings the weight cutting issue to the forefront because all boxing and fighting need is for healthy weights being called into question because there are people running with plastic bags in front of a ppv audience. that is another reason that they hold weigh ins the day before.

    I think that cutting weight is just another part of the game that fighters need to master. If guys had to same day weigh for their fights it would force the UFC to create micro divisions like in boxing. I remember talk in Pride of creating a division were sakuraba could compete without giving up lbs to his opponent. I for one would hate to see 2 sluggish dehydrated fighters muddle thru a match because the had 2 make weight 3 hrs before a fight.

    It they had weigh ins the same day they would have to do away with weight cutting I would guess. Maybe test their hydration levels. But I agree Tim its part of the game and part of being a disciplined pro. Weight cutting sucks so bad I can't even imagine how it feels for the guys who are cutting 15 lbs.
