    5'8 and 230 lbs? i seriously doubt that. you cant really drop and gain 60 pounds easily.

    Is this the same friend that said that Nick Diaz is telling people he doesn't think he can beat Riggs??

    No way Matt drops 60lbs before a fight... I'd guestimate 190 give/take...

    Am I the only one who thinks it is bullshit that the fighters are allowed to lose like 20lbs of water weight the day before the fight, make weight, and then gain it all back and fight at 20lbs over the weight limit for their class?? I think the weigh in should be a couple hours before the fight starts, so if someone wants to cheat, they will just make themselves weaker for the fight...

    but at the same time, if they don't train and live at that weight, it's probably harder for them to adapt to their new bodies. also, losing a lot of weight in a short amount of time (even water weight) can be VERY taxing on your body, even if it's just for the weigh in

    But they only have these "new bodies" in the hours leading up to the weigh in, and after the 24 hours of recovery time, are back to their original 20lbs over the limit bodies... Losing water weight IS taxing, but if you have 24 hours to re-hydrate yourself, then you are golden... If they did it like 2-3 hours before the show, then those who had to cheat to make weight wouldn't have time to recover, and thus would be at a disadvantage in the fight...

    A while back when they were reporting Vargas as having a 'huge' weight problem walking around at 200lbs. Thats ~50lbs. Id say Matt stays between 185-195.

    Check his blog. The cutting of 20lbs takes weeks. The day before weigh ins he only has to cut about 5-7lbs

    Bobby Southworth's 20lb cut was abnormal and unsafe. Gabe almost died from trying to cut that much weight.
