    Jrogan,,who i really don't care for makes a great point...

    Weight Cutting is Cheating on a greater scale than using PED's

    Rogan says ONE Championship is the template that everyone should follow going forward.

    How One Championship does this in link above. Seems Hydration testing And daily weighins are the Key

    I agree.....

    STOP THE WEIGHT CUTTING MADNESS. imo Pretty much Everyone will move up a weight class AT LEAST.. Maybe even more.

    Then TRUE CONTEST OF SKILL...

    Yep........Fascinating.

    Changed some of my wrongly held beliefs.

    When I look at fight time weights... EVERYONE would probably fight 2 weight classes higher With NO cutting. Wow.

    IF the UFC could somehow have everyone NOT cut any weight... imo There would Never be a Missed fight due to Weight cutting Misses. Fighter would All be Stronger come fight time...

    WE the consumer would then find out Who is the Most Skilled LB FOR LB... Not who is the best weight cutter.

    It would be a LOT safer for all the fighters I think.

    or am I missing something.?

    Would the LineUp of Champions Change Radically?... Do some win Because they have mastered/endure Massive Weight Cutting?

    Time will tell.

    I think Heavyweight would be the exception. All other weight classes however should follow the One Championship weight cutting model.

    The ONE championship model is a joke; in spite of whatever ginger awakens says, the model is completely unproven. Everything is hush hush, and kept from the public. We have no idea what the fighters actually weight, because the weights are not made public knowledge. On top of that, there are plenty of rumors of favored fighters missing weight and fighting anyways, or the dehydration rules only pertaining to certain fighters.

    Corruption or poor use of the system doesnt mean that the system is flawed.

    Wrasslers cut the most weight, therefore, wrasslers are the biggest cheaters.

    It's like Communism, but for fighting! The theory is great, but in practice, well, it's kind of crap, because people suck.

    I mean you can say the same thing about commissions or USADA or whatever, everything can be fucked with. Just because OneFC is being shady doesnt mean the idea is immediately by definition flawed.

    That's what I just said. Theory is good, but execution is shite because people are inherently likely to try to find an advantage in any system.

    And like I said by that definition USADA also sucks, and commissions, etc.

    The UFC has shown that it can run a tight ship with things such as USADA, even if it causes problems for them. With the occasional Lesnar hiccup
