Give guys an extra day to rehydrate, eat, get their strength back. I think it would help with cardio and make for better fights.

Thoughts?

That would lead to more idiots trying to cut an idiotic higher amount of weight.

I am not so sure. I think most are already cutting the max they can.

I don't want to see more guys doing the desert mouthed shuffle to the scale just because they know they get 48 hours to put themselves back together.

This. But then it'd only be the wrestlers cutting huge weight. Because they don't give a shit when weigh ins are. Same day all through their wrestling careers, and it doesn't give them too much pause. Phone Post

I think people already cut as much weight as they possibly can, with the 24hr weigh in. I don't know that I agree with the 48hr weigh in, but I don't think it would cause people to cut more weight. They'd be heavier at fight time, that's probably all. Phone Post

I agree with this. Either day prior or if they change it then it should be day of.

Too expensive for small shows. ( ie extra hotels for out of town fighters )

 

get tired because you cut too much weight? Go fuck yourself and fight at a proper weight

Wow a lot of people don't realize why they don't have weigh ins the day of the fight.

They don't do that because it leads to dehydrated fighters fighting on no fuel and getting close to dying during the fight. Phone Post

Then they should move up a weight class. This ultimate weight cutting BS is out of control.

This make guys fight at their natural weights. Day of weigh ins and if you cut 20-30 lbs too bad, fight at a higher weight. I was thinking about this the other day. Make it a real fight. On the street you don't get a chance to cut weight to fight!!!! Phone Post 3.0

MMA has become "the art of cutting weight" some can do it better than others. There are no true weight division champions, I think Frankie Edgar was really the only true champion at his natural weight, or close to it.

Weigh-ins should be a few hours before a fight, can't weigh in at that "real weight" at that time then its time to move on. That's the one thing I really hate about MMA, how would a 230 pound Jon Jones fare at HW instead of LHW ?? He's really a HW at fight time, makes sense calling him the best LHW right ?? Phone Post 3.0

I actually feel the opposite. I think they should be the morning of the fight. Phone Post
