    Very possible to do, but you're going to have to be damn dedicated. I wrestled 135s my senior year and my natural weight was 155-160. I can go into detail if you're serious, but I don't want to write something out just to have you give up and go 170s.

    when do you weigh in for the tourney? depending on how much time you have to recover will determine how much you can stand to lose in water before you tip the scales.

    lol I think it's such bullshit at some competitions where you gotta weight-in right before the match. I remember my buddy doing a 2 hour workout before his BJJ matches, he needed to lose 2 pounds because his Gi was still wet LOL. By the time he was done his GI had dried up some more and he was actually 4 pounds under, but utterly exhausted. He won his first match, but lost his second one T_T.

    Well It's doable in fact my friend that had to cut those 2 pounds that day was in the exact same situation as you are in. He walks around at 170-175 and he cut to 155 for that specific tournament. It was hell for him, but he did it, just took a lot out of him. He probably shouldn't have come to the UFC at the bar with us and ate that Poutine and drank those beer the Saturday before, but he still made it. He told me after the tournament that he wished he just went in for 170. Although his last competition he was 160 or something, he was 2 pounds over, but they allowed him to compete anyway.

    i kind of like the idea of weighing in right before competition :dunno:

    seems like it makes it more likely people will fight closer to their natural weight versus people who weigh in at 170 and fight 15-20 pounds heavier the next day

    10lbs a month at that height should be easy. eat lean, run 3 miles a day and you can probably get to 160 easy.
