used to walk around 60kg and cut to 56kg, so about 4 kg or 9lbs. (however i failed to make weight by 1.5kg for my first fight due to being inexperienced on how to cut)

now i walk around 63~kg and plan to fight at 60kg so about 3kg

I'm in a bad spot at the moment I've not been watching my weight because I thought id make 75kg easyyy but obviously I've grown over the last year. Weighed in at 79 yesterday so I've lined up to fight some 80kg guy on friday but I'm really just a 75 who hasn't thought about weight in a while.

So in answer to your question **** all I'm gonna have to make sure I keep the weight on me this week.

I had to loose 7 kg in one week,made it,but was completely dead exhausted,went into the fight,second round starts,no legs at all.
They robbed me of my win anyway cause it was in the guys hometown.
Usually i lost 6 kg but in a smart way.That time wasnt smart.LOL
