Cut Weight Or Improve You Skills?
Weight cutting is still such a big issue in combat sports. Getting to the top of weight class where one thinks he will have a strength advantage is the philosophy. From high school athletes to professional fighters, this is common. Some say they have it down to a science. I still say that if you lose more than 10 lbs for a fight, your are do your body a disservice. It is bad on your organs, you risk going flat during the event, and it just plain sucks. Improve your skills instead of starving yourself. When I competed, I didn't care if you cut weight and came down to my division. It wouldn't help.
