Man, if there is one thing I don't want is more weight classes & go the way of Boxing where all you've gotta do is eat a big dinner to move up a weight & become a "world" champ.

I don't agree with weight cutting. I think there should be three weigh-ins. One a week before the fight, another 2 days before the fight and the last one right before the fight. Not only is weight cutting dangerous....it is a scam. A few more weight classes would solve this issue.



How is it a scam exactly?

Weight cutting is not a scam nor dangerous if done correctly. Its pretty ironic talking about weight cutting as dangerous in a full contact fighting sport. Headline: MMA is dangerous by the nature of the sport, but athletes choose to do it. Weight cutting is completely fair and legal. Each fighter can cut weight as they choose. They must weigh the pros and cons to see if it's worth it - size/strength vs cardio/speed. But each fighter has the choice - so it's fair.
