Will Athletic Commissions ever address Extreme Weight Cuts?
Some have suggested that the commissions implement a rule stating that a fighter can not cut more than 10lbs below their natural weight. And of course their are other number thrown around, but we have seen fighters go to the hospital after weight cuts because their bodies start shutting down. How long before someone dies? What are the long term health consequences of these 20lb plus weight cuts? Are there any studies being done? I think as fans of the sport we should definitely care more about this issue. I'd like to see this issue addressed.
