    So I'm 31 years old and I'm 5'9" and weigh 140 lbs. Does that mean I'd have to fight in the Flyweight class? Or maybe Bantamweight?

    Just a question I pondered. Thanks!

    Have you competed before in any combat sport? If so, were you competitive in that weight class?
    How do you fare sparring with those 5-15lbs heavier? 5-15lbs lower?
    How do you think your body will respond/recover to a weight cut via 5-10lbs or a weight gain?
    How lean are you currently?

    I am guessing he is probably skinny fat......with a touch of gyno.............

    I think he will probably better off getting some tribal tattoos and dropping to 125.......

    first off is finding your natural weight (usually what you are within 5lbs give or take)

    DONT recommend going crazy with a weight cut for your first fight

    Choose the class 10ish lbs below your weight when you enter fight camp.

    Have you done a smoker yet?
