    adoniscomplex, the weight classes for GQ are every 10lbs for example 150.0-159.9 lbs.
    So if you tried to cut to 155 you would just be in the middle of that division. Not to bust balls I wasn't sure if you knew that so I was just stating it.

    I will be doing the 140.0-149.9 advanced no-gi and the 149.9 & under Purple Belt divisions.

    lol no problem. You only have to lose 6lbs I'd recommend the 149.9 weight class. Because at white belt level they will probably try and out muscle you so it doesnt hurt if you are one of the stronger/heavier ones in your division. Im currently 165 and I never have a problem cutting to 149.9. It sucks but its doable.
