Tibau, Rampage, Griffin, Brock, Weidman, Hendricks, Cruz ... all big kids for their weight class.

Nobody "cuts" 60 pounds - that type of weight is shed off during training camp. A true weight cut generally starts around 24-48 hours before the weigh-ins. I've never heard of anyone even claiming more than 30 pounds, and I wouldn't believe them anyway.

judonoob - Hendricks has to shed 40 - 50 lbs.

But he's carrying extra blubber, Johnson and Tibau are ripped 20-30 pounds over.

AJ, Tibau, Gyu....seeing pics of Barao sparring with Aldo has to make Barao up there, he'd still be on the big size at FW?

I remember people used to say GSP was like the largest WW to walk the earth but he's been matched or outsized in quite a few of his recent fights.

Rampage gets fat in between fights but in shape at LHW, he's hardly huge. Just look at him vs Chuck or Forrest.

You;re right on the 60lb thing but the "cuts" start much earlier than the 24/48 hours if you take into account dieting throughout the camp and monitoring months/weeks out?

Seems like a lot of guys here think you can dehydrate yourself over the course of three months to make weight. lol!

Dieting and cutting weight is hugely different. Who cares if a fighter is little fat three months out. Phone Post 3.0

Dieting is not the same thing as "cutting" weight, which involves shedding as much water weight as you can in a short period of time. It would be totally counterproductive to shed water weight a week before weigh-ins.

As far as a % of thier body weight, in the final 4-5 days before weigh ins, GSP when he was at his heaviest did 194 to 170. Aldo was around 165 for Hominick iirc. Uncle Creepy did a CRAZY 155-160 to 125 once too... Phone Post 3.0

Thank you for knowing what youre talking about. Just had someone at the gym ask if their fight was booked for March cause they needed to "start their cut". I had to explain to them, "no...what youre gonna start is called a DIET! Your cut comes a few days out from the fight." Everything leading up to fight week is weight loss. Your "cut" is the drastic measues you take to get the final pounds off. Phone Post 3.0

Yeah either PeePee was joking in response, or there is some terrible info out there. 

 

220-230 is months outside of a fight. The 230 source most everyone cites was during a 6 month layoff from elbow surgery. 

195-205 is where Anderson and hos team says he gets to about a month out.  

198-203 is what they say he weighs on the cage. 

there are WWs that get in that range in the cage FFS.

Chael Sonnen when he fought at MW. IIRC he dropped 20 lbs 24 hours before weigh ins for ufc 148, plus whatever he was dropping the few days before. His face before weigh ins would always look so much skinnier than normal
