    Yep, that’s my understanding too. According to a friend of mine that fights for them, there are regular weigh-ins and hydration tests leading up to the fight to avoid this tomfoolery.

    She’s got the right mindset, there’s a few other fighters that notoriously lift heavy such as ilir latifi (sp), Jon Jones, and Alexander gustusfan (sp) also has a serious deadlift.

    For what it’s worth, I just did a grappling tournament Saturday and competed at 190-199lb weight class. It was absurd how much stronger I was than my opponents in the clinch, which I attribute to my strength training. Also, I was by far the “smallest” competitor in my weight class in terms of I guess you can say frame so as everyone here knows, this shit works.

    True, but One doesn't release the weights of the fighters, even to the opponents. It's Asia, so there probably won't be any legal action, but I suspect shenanigans.
