    Here is a crazy idea. How about fighters have to weight within the weight class limit. When you are signed for a fight for the 6 weeks prior you have to be in the range the whole time. You are subject to random weigh ins 6 times and must weigh in on the way to the ring in the limit. Each time you miss you lose 10 % if you purse. This eliminates Cutting Weight. If you lose fat and get I. Shape great but no dehydration to make it at the last second. Simple solution IMO. Everyone just moves up a class basically. Maybe you move up LHW to 225 and HW to 295. Cutting weight is pointless and has nothing to do with fighting.

    This is good an idea as the “Jump to Conclusions Mat” from Office Space.
