Get Rid of Weight Cutting
I don’t think this is necessary, and IMO won’t lead to more exciting fights. If guys feel that they perform better by moving up a weight, they’d do it. If you go to the extreme and introduce hydration testing and weekly weight loss allowances, guys will preemptively cut and hydrate to the minimum… which will also mess with training schedules.
