    Not even a rule, simple standard procedure.

    You sign with organization.

    Doctor take your height, measures, bone structure etc... then he give his verdict:

    "Mr. Xxxx is allowed to compete in MMA at professional level, fighting at XX weight class or above"

    Weigh in can stay 1 day before as now

    Very simple method

    Yes or No?

    I'd like to say "yes, if it is done once a year", but really, having someone else decided a fighters weightclass opens them (the org who decides) up a whole ton of scrutiny.

    I think something as simple as random weigh-ins throughout a camp, with say a swing-window of 5-10 pounds would be more than enough to make sure people aren't dramatically cutting weight fight-week.

    Just set limits on dehydration, like they do with high school wrestling.

    If you miss weight, your next fight is a weight class up, easy.
