    If you miss by 4 lbs, it should be immediately. This shit is getting ridiculous.

    There can be reasons for missing weight once and a while. Not defending Til in this scenario but when a fighter is sick or injured it's not so simple.

    If you're sick or injured to the point that you can't make weight you should pull out of the fight.

    or they could figure out some way that forces fighters to fight at their more natural weights.

    how is cutting weight an advantage when ie both 155 fights are actually 175 and both starve themselves before fighting for weeks.

    in addition to making fighting safer for the fighters, some kind of weight cutting rules would probably also lead to more exciting fights and less gassing.
