    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    i weigh about 150 but i want to fight at about 170 or 180

    ok im about 6'1 6'2 and i weigh around 150 and i really want to fight at a heavier weigh because i dont want to risk injury but the only problem is we do alot of crossfit and then we hit the mad or pads so i have alot of cardio in my training and its hard to me to gain weight, and i know if i lift weights to get that weight on me then i will have to much muscle and it might make it harder to fight as long and i dont want to just eat alot of **** and then get fat. does anyone have any tips or advice? thank you God bless

    You're really skinny, but there are successful fighters about your size. You don't mention how long you've been doing CrossFit or what your diet is like.

    If you're rull, rull surryus about this, you're going to want to fight at at least ten pounds under your walking weight. As much as twenty if you're a weight cutting baller like A. Silva, and while that won't guarantee you anything having more working pounds on you is generally to your advantage.

    So, good luck gaining thirty to fifty pounds of lean muscle.

    I would have to agree, that going up in weight is probably not the answer.

    You're going to have to gain some amount of weight, but don't focus on it. Train and eat right and plenty. You'll settle into a good athletic weight, go from there.

    For right now: train more.

    If you want to make yourself heavier you really only have the choice of putting on fat or muscle. There is no such thing as too much muscle. What do you mean when you say that?

    How does fighting at a heavier weight reduce the risk of injury. They hit harder when their bigger.

    what i mean is for example when ufc came to where i live i went and corey hill was fighting, he was 6 foot something and fighting at like 150 and when he kicked someone checked it and his shin broke and i heard it was because his bone density was too low because his weight was too low for his height

    what i mean is i dont want to get too much big muscles because the bigger your muscle the more blood your heart has to pump and it takes more oxygen and i already have crappy cardio as it is i dont need anything else slowing me down

    Then you need better cardio.

    And Corey Hill just didn't condition his shins enough. Kick the heavy bag with proper form more if you don't want to be Corey Hill.
