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.
What i suggested was basically same day weight ins but without the 7-8lbs of water weight. You weight in at your weight the day before, you go home eat and drink whatever. The next day there is a second weight in just before you get in the ring (so your fully hydrate and fed at this point) if your 7lbs over (everybody weight changes during the day) you give a load of your money to your opponent.
It would stop anyone cutting loads of weight because nobody would be stupid enough to do it or want to loose all that money.
