    Weight 10 pounds less or more makes hella less difference that 8+ inch advantage. If you weigh 30 more pounds it doesnt matter as much if someone has crazy reach on you

    solves weight cutting problem

    Size is a social construct. If a heavyweight identifies as a featherweight, he should damn well be allowed to compete in that division. This is 2018, people.

    It would be fun for a little while if all weight classes were eliminated and everything was made openweight.

    It would really cool to see which lower weight fighters even stuck around to try it out.

    It sounds dumb but......... you're tallest in the morning after laying down for 8 hours so........ if you keep awake and standing up for a couple of days before the measure in and then make sure you sleep laying down until just before the fight you could have a height advantage.

    Not too different to weight cutting really.

    Pretty dumb idea. Weight cutting can work just fine if it's changed a bit to encourage healthier behavior and if fighters were actually professional.
