My experiences in weight cutting is pretty limited... i bleed out about 5lbs of water and get it all back the next day. Is it common for a welterweight to put on 25lbs between the weigh-in and fight?
I wouldn't say 25 lbs in a day is common at all. 10-15 lbs is about the upper limit one can expect to gain back at that weight in a day's time. Even then, that's the upper range. More common would be around 8-12.
Now, if you're Brock Lesnar then you might be able to gain back 20 lbs pretty easily. Just because his body is so huge that it can hold a **** ton of water and he probably eats about twice what a 180 lb. guy can expect to possibly be able to eat.
