Cutting Weight.. Disgrace.




The whole point of weight classes is to make the fight as fair as possible, that's why Rua fights at 205. He wants to fight guys his weight come fight night, not heavyweights weighing 230. Back in the day you would see fighters fighting at their natural weight like true fighters, nowadays it seems you have to cheat and cut weight to be a champion, that's not a true champion, it's called being a cheater.

Now Rua walks around at 210/15, that's a simple cut to 205, nothing to drastic, Jones cuts from 240, do the math. He has the power, size, reach advantage over anyone at 205. Now that's not fair, I don't care how good you're are, you're not beating a guy with that kind of advantage. MMA is about skill, not who the hell can cut the most weight.

The athletic commission needs to step in ASAP and put a cap on how much weight a fighter is allowed to cut. Let's make these divisions fair once and for all, lets see how two fighters who weigh the same go at it. Oh, and don't tell me that Rua should just cut to 185, that doesn't solve the problem. Fighters shouldn't have to cut all this weight just because some other clown is(GSP, Jones.)

GSP is to blame, he started this trend. I've had enough now kids, the commission need to put this straight. That fight last night a disgrace to MMA. What do you kids think, had enough of putting up with this BS?
