    Hey guys, if this isn't the right place please move thread.

    What do you guys think is a safe amount of weight for someone in a strictly striking sport to cut? I feel as in mma you're not getting hit quite as much so they can get away with cutting more.

    From what I understand kickboxers don't cur a lot of weight in general. Personally I can do a 15lb cut and be solid for a fight, do you giys think anytbing over that would be detrimental for kickboxing/Muay Thai?

    Cutting water...technically none.
    Though 10% is the most i would ever recommend a person attempt.

    This.

    Anymore than 10% and you're reaching into hospital level risks.

    Cutting in striking isn't as much as an advantage in MMA.
