Personally i think there should be 2 weight in's one the same as now and one on fight night 2 hours before the fight if theres more than a 7lbs weight difference that fighter has to give 50% of his purse to his opponent.
That would stop any massive weight cutting because nobody would want to loose that much money.
This would actually be worse, you would have guys making weight and knowingly entering the ring massively under nourished and de-hydrated, this is where guys get brain damage!
Same day weigh-ins eliminates everything, fighters get on the scales more or less the size they will fight in the ring minus 7-8 pounds of water.
