We all know the dangers of dehydration yet the UFC still uses a weigh-in format that forces fighters to either: dehydrate their bodies the day before an event or fight larger men. Even with the amount of evidence that supports the argument of abolishing weight cuts, a vast majority of fans, managers, and fighters accept this pre fight ritual as part of the culture. With the absence of weight cuts, fighters would be healthier, have better in-fight cardio, and be able to spend more time developing physically and technically during the last weeks of their camp. From a business aspect this would also benefit the UFC as they would be able to sell a more quality product. So why are day-of weigh ins (particularly right before hand wrapping commences) not rabidly clamored for in the fight community? This would make dehydration obsolete since it would allow no time for rehydration. I could think of only three reasons why this would be: 1. Fighters don't want to speak out. 2. The UFC doesn't want to put in the effort to change something that "works". 3. Most fans just don't give a fuck. I personally believe the latter plays the biggest role in this issue. Most forum posters and website commenters care very much about this topic, but sadly we are not heard or represented. I believe if we raise our voices and force Dana to hear us through social media, if we can get mma journalists to ask Dana these questions and force an answer from him, we can save our fighters and make a change for the better. I know most of you are tired as fuck from school or work so thanks for taking the time to read this thing. If you have any opinions, suggestions, or just want to rant yourself feel free to share.
