Also I have never heard of a fighter ridding himself of muscle by cutting weight. He would have to cut 15 pounds to make 205 if he walks around at 220. There are fighters that cut much more. Before his fight with tito, forrest was at 230 and he cut down to 205. If you don't believe me then go to spike tv.com and watch the road to tito. It shows him weighing himself. Also, Rich Franklin cuts down massively to make 185.
You obviously dont know anything about fighting. Watch boxing you'll learn everything about cuttin weight. Also no one needs to ask anybody about cutting weight, if you knew about the training aspect of fighters then your would know all fighters cut weight unless their trying to move up in weight (in which case they start lifting weights to gain bulk and end up having to cut weight again) but they become slower in the process.
