    All of the fighters I coach for MMA and Muay Thai can typically cut 10% of their body weight without a huge amount of difficulty. Many are ex-wrestlers with experience but not all of them. The goal is to lose weight gradually far out and we like to keep the final 48 hrs to less than 10 lbs and closer to 5 if they are under 170. It keeps the energy, strength and endurance up for fight day.

    Uriah Hall apparently nearly died during a weight cut:
    http://mmaimports.com/2018/01/update...n-ufc-history/

    After some seemingly scary moments Saturday morning, Uriah Hall is awake and talking as of Saturday night, sources told MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani. He will still, however, be kept overnight in the hospital.

    The UFC middleweight was hospitalized due to a failed weight cut earlier in the day and will not be able to face Vitor Belfort in the scheduled co-main event of UFC St. Louis on Sunday night.

    Hall was on weight and en route to the morning weigh-ins when he fainted and was taken to the hospital, Helwani reported. Multiple sources told Helwani that doctors believe Hall suffered a seizure.
    The article continues with more details.

    Gabbi Garcia apparently also had some health related problems due to weight cut:

    My life first.

    Unfortunately a few days ago I measured my pressure and was high, I thought it was only that day.

    When I got off the plane in Japan I went to my training and started to have a headache, my eyesight blurred and my nose bleeding all the time.

    I warned my team, but I did not tell anyone because I did not give up.

    After all my training, my nose was bleeding from leaving a towel next to it.

    It was fine the night before and I decided to cut the weight the next morning, but I woke up with fever and again with my nose dripping, high blood pressure.

    Too much stress before traveling, unfortunately I still do not control my body, but I control my decisions.

    For those who have lost a brother, dying for a cut of weight would not be my choice.
    See linked articles for more details.

    Something really needs to be done. Young athletes are watching this people doing this severely unhealthy behavior in an attempt to essentially weight cheat, and thinking this is how weight cuts should be done. Personally I would like to see it done away with. However, as that is not likely to happen in professional sports any time soon, I think it should be treated like steroid usage by actors playing movie super heroes, namely kept quiet and denied.

    I agree.

    Extreme dehydration is very very dangerous for adults let alone kids.

    MTDAR & CABMMA Pass New Weight Cutting Regulations
    https://www.fightful.com/mtdar-cabmm...ng-regulations

    MTDAR director Mike Mazzulli spoke with MMA Fighting about the new measures:

    “Over the years, I have spoken to numerous fighters and they told me the worst thing about the sport is not the fight night, but the weight cut and weigh-in. The industry must do something to change the culture, and this is one step to assist in the matter. I can only hope that many other tribal and state commissions come aboard in an effort to make combative sports safer.”
