    So I've accepted to take a fight on a card that's in 15 days, and I've never done a cut on shorter notice before. I sit around 183.5 right now and have to cut to 170, should it be a problem?

    Have you cut an amount similar to that before?

    I'm normally a heavy weight cutter (14-16lbs) so to me its normal at this point, its done all on the week of the fight. But if you're not used to it and don't know how to rehydrate from a cut that large its not good.

    13.5 is nothing, considering you still have a 1.5 weeks of HARD training in you

    then again.. can be an issue depending on how shredded/%BF you have
