    Even those kind of in-depth stats and say goodbye to unhealthy weight cutting. That would be more fair of a fight.

    Make a mathematical balance between:

    - Body mass index
    - Bone density
    - Testosterone levels

    Impractical to have that many tests for every fighter.

    Weight classes work fine. Why complicate it?

    That would have no effect on weight cutting.

    The current system works fine. Fighters are ok with cutting weight, why aren't you?

    Well first of all then they wouldnt be weight classes anymore

    and also why the fuck would anyone want to watch a low testosterone division?

    weiner size being incorporated is definitely a good idea though

    I work in medicine and BMI is a joke, it'd say most of the heavyweights are obese.
