Weight cutting really needs to be addressed and something done before someone dies...again

They should make you weight in shortly before your fight...so people won't cut as much and if they do, they'll learn quick it's going to negatively impact their fight ability

lol at the idea of people weighing in shortly before fighting, no ones gonna cut to much and suffer medically that way right?

The only way people start cutting less weight is if they make a limit on the % of body mass permissible to cut and determine your starting weight with multiple random weight checks over the course of several months leading up to the fight. They could do the weight checks in conjunction with USADA checks.

I despise the fact that weight cutting is such a huge part of the game and literally has nothing to do fighting.

He isn't even a big weight cutter from what I recall, so this is def weird.
