I just wish they got rid of the weight cutting. It is no longer a secret, nor a significant advantage.
If you are 172 and I am 172 and we both cut to 155, why not just have us refine our diet slightly, and fight at 170 and call it a day.
You sign a fight and you weigh 162 and you know the most a dude will outweigh you is 9 pounds come fight night. You know your disadvantage and if you need to bulk up or trim down in camp. No more depleted fighters gassing on fight night, way better idea imo.
