The Cage Combat 7 weigh-ins are over and done and it’s time to get down to the fights! This is where I normally say “all fighters made weight” but to be honest, that just wasn’t the case. Many fighters came in over weight and I have to say it was kind of disturbing to see this trend, especially in the amateurs.
I might be wasting my breath here, but I feel like I need to say this.
If you are an amateur fighter and you are not taking your weight serious, shame on you. The amateurs are the times for you to get used to cutting and making the weight you plan to fight at, ESPECIALLY if you plan on going pro later. If you don’t take it serious now, you could be in for a shock when you go pro. Use your amateur career to prepare you for the pros. That goes for EVERY aspect of the fight game, from the preparation to the time in the cage.
I spoke with promoter Eric Garcia after the weigh-ins and he was just as shocked as I was.
