Right now, somewhere, there is a film student who is kind of into MMA and he doesn't know what he wants to do with himself. He should go and start a documentary on weight cutting. Talk to fighters about their experiences and get stories of the best and the worst of them. If it's done right, it could be incredible. If he wanted to go buck, he should go into the HS and college wrestling scene, and meet with doctors about the impact it can have on developing physiology.
it's a cancer, and the worst kind of cancer is the one that isn't just ignored, it's embraced by the community.
