    Source: Joe Rogan recently argued that the effects of weight cutting are more beneficial than using PEDs;

    “(Cutting weight) is cheating at a much higher scale even than PEDs. If you get two people and they both weigh 135 but they’re both totally hydrated and one of them has been doing steroids and one of them hasn’t been doing steroids, the difference will be far less than if one person weighs in at 135 but then balloons up to 160 and then gets into that octagon at 160 but there’s no PEDs involved. That’s a much greater advantage than someone whose doing some sort of testosterone thing or something."

    Dude, if I was running s**t, I’d fix that first. That would be the first thing I would fix.” Rogan said "People push it, they do push it, If you give them more time, they are gonna push it. If they know that they can rehydrate longer - which is the idea, that it’s safer because you can rehydrate from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. instead of from 4 p.m. on. I just think give them all the time they need. ONE FC has laid out the ground work. Look at what they did with their hydration tests and implement that."

    Rogaine's top 3 ideas for MMA:

    1. MMA matches take place on football field
    2. Add 15 more weight classes, 5lbs per division
    3. No standup for stalling, no time limit

    Good thing this bald manlet isn't in charge.

    Joe's an idiot. I'm sorry, he has a commanding cadence to his voice and is able to make enough sense that he appears smart but the man is not. Just my opinion.

    If you were in charge you'd be handing out Bongs and HGH in the locker room..

    I would make fighters weigh in before their fights too.

    If you wanna weigh 185 fight at MW not LW.

    You'd get healthier fighters and better match ups imo. People would be fighting where they're supposed to be fighting.

    I really don't understand why fans are ok with this weight cutting. It should be shamed. If you are a fighter and want to be considered one of the best fighters, you should fight at your natural walk around weight. Personally, i find fighters who cut crazy amounts of weight bully's. Hard to root for them to be honest.

    I would love if the weight cutting nonsense stopped, the crazy thing is that a lot of the fighters actually perform better when they fight closer to their natural weight.

    I thought the first thing he'd do is put on a football field and remove the gloves.

    It's gone beyond that now, have you not seen the stats for fighters who came in without cutting and their results against people who did?
    Until the issue is fixed, if the fighter doesn't cut, he comes in at a huge disadvantage.
    It may have started with a 'bully' mentality, although it was more likely a 'winning' mentality and a way to gain advantage... Now its a structural issue.

    Wrong.
    The fight card just gone completely disproves this idea...

    On fight night the most you should be allowed is 5 pounds over your natural limit.

    So if you're a WW you can weigh 175 with the 5 pound window. If you want to weigh more then move up to MW.

    Mother fuckers say they fight at 155 but they only get down to 155 for 6 or less hours way before fight takes place and say see im 155... But it doesnt matter because when they miss weight they still fight and still get belts.
