    CSAC passes ground-breaking package of weight-cutting regulations

    The largest set of weight-cutting regulations in United States mixed martial arts history has been approved.



    The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) unanimously passed a 10-point plan written to help combat extreme weight cutting and severe dehydration in MMA at its meeting Tuesday. Included in the plan are stricter fines for weight-miss offenders, fight-day weight checks and the addition of new weight classes.

    All sounds pretty positive for weight cutting practices.......other than the fact it's not industry wide, in one state alone it'll make very little difference to the sport.

    It's not going to do anything. None of the are RULES other than the fines. The rest are just recommendations. "The fight will be recommended to go up a weight class", doesn't do a thing.

    Oh yeah, that's the problem.......if all fights were under the ruling though, then it would be easier to enforce an actual ruling rather than a recommendation, they can't force someone up a weight class if they don't fight in Cali.

    They can't even get together and figure out the rules of a "downed opponent" for the knees, how the hell are they gonna figure out and enforce a weight cutting "rule"

    Exactly my point. The rules/recommendations all look pretty good.......but until there is an overall ruling body to enforce these rules(and that of knees, and any other rule), it's all kinda pointless.

    you can do A in California, New York but not in Nevada, Canada or Europe, but B is legal in New York and California while it's illegal in Canada and California...but wait C is ok in Nevada and Europe but not New York or Texas

    It's embarrassing at this point.

    It truly is...for fuck sakes the commentators don't even know 100% which rules are being enforced at any given moment....the refs also seem to have difficulties at times

    I think the refs actually do know......but because of the misinformation from commentary, and from what we 'think' is right, it comes across that they don't know........obviously that's gonna have anomalies to it too though.
