i think it's bullshit watching guys like sherk, hughes, franklin (and i like franklin ), tito and others come in to a fight 10-15% heavier than the fight weight. this should be a contest of skill and athleticism, not who can cheat the weight system well enough to enjoy a grotesque size advantage over his opponent. then again, i realize that some guys are sort of "between" weights and are kinda fucked. edit: i have to admit that 15%, while possible, is really fucking high. i still stand by my 10% estimate. edit v2: fuck you all. i was right about sherk.
