**Fighter's Walk Around Weights**

I'm bored at work and I decided to make a thread dedicated to fighters walk around weights because there so often seems to be arguments on sherdog about who walks around at what weight.

*Please note that the sources vary and some of the numbers are what the fighter cuts water from because I couldn't find numbers for what they actually walk around at, whereas some of the numbers are what fighters weigh when not training at all. It's just to give you a general idea of what they weigh when not cutting*

Please feel free to add more recent/trustworthy sources to the fighters I have here, or to add some of your own fighters if you can provide a source for it. I'll check the thread and update the OP every few pages.

You are listing "walk around weight" for some and then "fight weight" for others. There's a big difference.

Edit: ok, actually read the entire OP now so nm.

1- Poirer's cut is sick.

2- Silva should fight at LHW.

3- HWs like Cain and JDS should be fighting at LHW. Anderson kills 40-50 pounds between dieting and cutting weight and he is a MW, a HW should have an easier time cutting weight. JDS is at 240, he can get 35 pounds with dieting.
