Carla Esparza posted a picture of the max check-in weights that will be allowed by the UFC starting this July.
As Esparza noted, there will be a grace period while the policy is put into play.
Starting in July, fighters will be encouraged to report to fight week within 8% of their weigh-in weight. (There will be a grace period while athletes adjust to this new policy.) I'm personally super excited about it! I think we will start seeing some people move around in weight classes, which will make for some interesting match ups. But most importantly, it will protect fighters safety in the short and long run. What do you think??? Good or bad?
