I have been involved in individual combative sports with weight classes since the age of 10. Cutting weight has and will always be a piece of the competitive equation. When you do it right it shows and when you get it wrong you feel it in your soul. I’ve been on both ends of that experience during my many years as a wrestler so when asked to drop down to the 205 lbs weight division and compete against Chuck Liddel for the light heavyweight interim championship title. I wanted assure I made that weight cut the right way with so much more than just a win or a loss riding on my performance.
I enlisted the help of friend, chiropractor, and nutritional guru, Ryan Parsons to help me make the appropriate adjustments to my training and eating habits. I showed up in Las Vegas for the weigh ins and the fight lean and mean. I was 20 lbs lighter than the former heavyweight athlete I had been, but with all my strength and endurance still intact. I had one of the best performances of my 14 year career as an MMA athlete and the blue print for a big piece of that success is in the pages of this guide to weight cutting!
Special Thanks to Ryan for imparting his knowledge to me in that endeavor. Now you too can benefit from his expertise. There is nothing in this world worse than standing in the center of that combative arena with the realization that you got it wrong!
