    I've only noticed fighters taking in some water is there a rule against this?

    I believe the rule is that they can only have water during the fight.

    They drink water because Gatorade don't pay them nothin'.


    But seriously, it's probably not a good idea to drink sugary drinks while competing. Maybe afterwards.

    I don't know about everywhere, but many commissions will only allow water in the cage. Nevada and NJ say the chief second shall equip themselves with a "clear plastic water bottle", among other things.

    Funny, I was just thinking about this the other day. Id want gatorade over water. Why wouldnt gatorade be allowed? Too performance enhancing?

    They're supposed to drink scotch, smoke cigars, and chew tobacco between rounds like real men...

    Google Pryor - Arguello. It's one of the reasons why only water is allowed.

    They have post fight PED tests, so that's not the reason, I don't think.

    Can't ensure what's in it maybe. Or if it gets spilled it could make the mat or the fighter sticky. Just guessing.

    Legit still the most confusing thing I've ever seen between rounds...
    Like... She seemed surprised about it but too tired to get mad. Definitely didn't seem like she was in on it.

    What could it possibly accomplish? Is an overheated cooch what's causing her to gas?
    Did he just hope to have some reason to take a peek?

    Literally the only thing that makes sense is a bet or something.
