Let's face it....fighters are going to try and get whatever advantage they can. Even if weigh-ins become "same day", fighters are still going to cut, and then try to rehydrate.

Why not make weigh-ins 2 days prior to the fight? This gives a fighter much more time to rehydrate between the weigh-ins and actual fight. This would probably cut down on poor performances, and maybe even allow fighters to be a little healthier entering the cage/ring.

I still used to cut 12lb and weigh in before wrestling matches. And I wasn't even cutting the most weight on the team. Did perfectly fine.

Full Camp Patrick Cummins is the new Motivated BJ Penn.

That's not progress, that's regress. If it ain't broke, no need to fix it.
