    A recent thread has inspired me to ask: for those who compete, how tall are you, what do you weigh, and what do you cut down to?

    Poll coming.

    I'm 6'2, ~187, and I cut down to 179. Hoping to get down to ~180 so I can consider dropping to 169, but we'll see.

    You didn't put real weight classes up there...

    I'm 6" and cut to 155. But its getting harder and harder...

    145-155

    156-170

    171-185

    186-205

    205-265

    266+

    Wrestling tournament weight classes are different than MMA classes. I figured more people around here do small wrestling tournaments than MMA.

    6'1" walk around at about 205-210, 6 week fight training will get me to 190-195 without hardly changing my diet at all.

    5'6" shooting for 165 normally and if for some crazy reason I would do a cut it would be to 155.

    I don't remember what the weight classes were exactly, but in high school is was 6ft and wrestled 155(?) and once cut it down to like 145(?). Never gonna do that shat again. I'm around 175 right now so I might cut down to 169 for my first fight.

    There is a really even distribution going on here. I really expected there to be a big spike at 159 or 169.

    Leave it to me to fuck up the curve...

    5'3", 140. If I ever compete in a BJJ tourney, I'll cut to 136 for the 141 lb. class in a gi. If I were to ever fight MMA (which I won't), I'd have to cut to like 130 or something stupid light.

    5'9", walkin around at ~165 right now. Last fight was at 135 (cut from about 150)...will probably fight at 145 in the future.
