completely scan everything

and no, no same day weigh ins, most fighters cut relatively the same percentage of weight, barring a few outliers

although i would like them to at least weigh them before they step in the cage, just to see what they weigh after rehydrating

i remember there was a poll on here and over 90% of people would like to know what fighters weigh in the cage

weight cutting has got ridiculous. no one will take notice until someone dies from brain damage related to dehydration.

Yes. Your pre-camp bodymass can't be more than 11% of the weight (or whatever number you want to throw up between 10-13%).

Winning. Do it.

Yes, they should implant microchips in their brains to control their weight
