I know most guys cut weight for a fight in MMA, but there seems to be a lot of conflicting info on some of the MMA boards. What I'm interested in is the weight that most fighters at various weight classes actually fight at (not what they walk around at or what they weigh in at). For example, what do most LHW actually weigh in the fight? 215-225? I know it probably depends on the individual somewhat, but how much can one cut and then put back on by fight time? I heard a rumor (which seems pretty ridiculous) that Riggs weighed 202 for his WW fight against Diaz. Specific examples are always fun and welcomed.
Also, I heard that UFC fighters cut more weight in general than Pride guys. Although his size has varied some, Silva, for example, doesn't seem to cut much weight. Any validity to this statement?
