If fighters didn't cut (much) weight...

Could they fight more often? Would there be overall improved cardio/performances? What would be the benefits from eliminating the massive weight cut culture? What would be the cons? Phone Post 3.0

There are no cons to eliminating the massive weight cut culture. Although there are problems with eliminating the culture safely, but once it is gone there would be only upsides. The only arguments for keeping the status quo are that it would be dangerous for guys who would cut anyway, in a same day weigh in scenario, or fights cancelled if there was hydration tests. Personally, I think hydration tests are the way to go.

So, after safety, what would the benefits be to quality of the product? If fighters could/would fight more often that would be huge. Phone Post 3.0
