Midnight Mania! If the fighter recovers too much weight, the California State Athletic Commission will begin to cancel the fight.

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) is one of the most active commissions in sports, and one of the biggest obstacles is weight loss. The fighter regained the mass immediately after the official weighing, so the actual weight was much higher than the initial number on the day of the battle. Trying to lose and recover too much weight is bad for your health and can lead to unfair competition.

In recent events, the CSAC is heading in the right direction by recording the weight of the players on the night of the battle. After taking all of this data, ESPN reports that CSAC today implemented a new rule to cancel a match where one player is 15{7be40b84a6a43fc4fae13304fce9a2695859798abfc41afd127b9f8b21c5f9c5} heavier than the contract weight. At first, the CSAC recommended fighters who recovered more than 10{7be40b84a6a43fc4fae13304fce9a2695859798abfc41afd127b9f8b21c5f9c5} of their weight to climb to division, but in general these recommendations are deaf.

Andy Foster, executive director of CSAC, described the case of extreme weight loss as a "health and safety issue" that acknowledged "sanctioned cheating." The promoter hopes to simply make more catchway bouts or move players onto the weight class. "It's set to stone as we're tied to this weight class, and the fighter can't move and frankly isn't healthy," he said.

Overall, it seems to go in the right direction unless it's bold. 15{7be40b84a6a43fc4fae13304fce9a2695859798abfc41afd127b9f8b21c5f9c5} is a lot of weight. In addition, size discrepancies can also occur if the bout goes to the catch weight and only one fighter uses an extra allowable pound. That's what happened at UFC 241 when Manny Bermudez received a 140 pound catch. At the last minute with his brutal weight loss. Bermudez regained 17.7{7be40b84a6a43fc4fae13304fce9a2695859798abfc41afd127b9f8b21c5f9c5} of his weight and went inside us at 164.8 pounds. His opponent Casey Kenney weighed only 145 pounds. — They were two full weight classes. Even if Bermudez remained below 15{7be40b84a6a43fc4fae13304fce9a2695859798abfc41afd127b9f8b21c5f9c5}, the potential difference is very large.

It's a complex issue that may require several adjustments, but at least CSAC is one of the few efforts.

I can't sleep

Aspen Ladd, who regained 24{7be40b84a6a43fc4fae13304fce9a2695859798abfc41afd127b9f8b21c5f9c5} of his weight in the UFC "Sacramento", also played at CSAC today, complaining to Germaine de Randamie about knockout losses for discrimination reasons. I agree that some referees tend to stop fighters early in Women's MMA, but Ladd dropped and stared into space and had no reaction to punches. There was no intelligent defense.

In short, bad appeal is bad. And it was rejected!

This old Matt Serra highlight is beauty.

The best time to try to submit is just after the battle hits the mat, before the position is established.

Just … hail!
