I was thinking about this saturday night as Rios beat the crap out of peterson. When the fight started i noticed how much bigger and fuller Rios was than Peterson. Then their fight night weight was announced. Rios blew up to 151 while Peterson wen to 139. Peterson really had no shot. He couldn't hurt the bigger man. I see this a lot in my sport. I am a power lifter. I weigh around 215 and compete in the 220 class. there are guys that weigh in 220 but the next day when we compete i can tell they are way bigger than me. some come in around 235 but since they weighed in under the limit then can compete and they blow me out of the water. For years i have just dealt with it but now i am thinking if this is fair or should i do the same as they do, get some water pills and go down to 198 then rehydrate back up to my normal weight of 215 and blow the competition at 198 out of the water. I honestly haven't done that because i feel its cheating. what do you guys think?
