    Pro:

    You are harder to take down
    You hit harder
    You are stronger physicaly

    Con:

    You focus on something else than training
    You lose a bit of speed
    You lose a bit of cardio
    You lose a bit of your chin




    I am really not sure about the you lose your chin and hit harder part because we saw fighter having a better chin and power moving up but also the same moving down

    I don't think you can make it illegal
    Peoples will always cheat look at one fc.

    Positives of weight cutting = 0

    Everyone hated it until Conor stopped doing it, and then natty weight became a sign of 'cowardice'. If Conor starts cutting to 45 again, everyone will want it banned again.

    It has a detrimental affect on the body later in life. Should have never been allowed.

    weight cutting may help with cardio in some cases.
    McGregor for example I feel has a better gas tank at 155 and 145 than at 170.
    I think this is down to how he cuts weight like running and cycling.

    The one who cuts the most without cutting too much will have the advantage.

    If I was a fighter I'd just cut a certain amount that didn't cross the line in terms of health or struggle, and just accept that I'm slightly smaller than my opponent and focus on other things I can use to my advantage.

    UFC needs to get rid of weight classes. Then weight cutting will be gone.

    I support weight cutting. My jeans don't fit and I cant see my dick

    I think weight cutting should be allowed until it causes you to pull out of fights

    And you're basing that on what?
    The only time he's gone 5 rounds he was at 170.

    None of your pros and cons make any sense.

    he went 3 rounds with holloway on an injured knee. And went 4 with khabib smothering him. He also went 9 rounds with Mayweather at 153.
