    9:52 WRONG. a Calorie is still a calorie.. Its like saying 10 yards isnt 10 yards because you walk it or drive it. A calorie is a specific and set measurement. He is also wrong about the thermogenic effect of protein. 40%!?? depending on the food source its 15 to 30% MAX..

    Not that it's mentioned in the video but it's dropping stupid amounts of water weight before the weigh in, hitting the weight, just about collapsing on stage and then pumping litres of fluid back into the body and weighing about 15lbs more on fight night. Also before the UFC drug testing ramped up using an iv drip to replenish fluids was a great way to hide performance enhancing drugs.

    A quicker way to cut weight quickly and safely and having even more energy is going 100% Vegan. I know Carnivores don't want to hear it but it's the truth. Vegans recover way quicker after being pummeled.

    Wow those #’s and those deadlines are pretty drastic, but really impressive. Just a genuine question - the methods fighters use to cut weight to make a fight (diet/fast/exercise wise), are they okay for someone (not a fighter, just trying to get in shape) trying to lose weight/cut body fat in general?

  • Drewb18c1

    True story I lost 6 lbs in 12 hrs. It's super easy. Just run for 12 hours. For real though it was actually fascinating observing myself try to put the weight back on. That was way harder than I expected and it gave me an interesting insight into what fighters go though between weigh in and their fight. Obviously they don't water cut by running an ultramarathon, so maybe that makes it easier to rehydrate? I was still underweight and not firing on all cylinders 48 hours later lol

    Last Tkd fast food and only drink water with aminos after working out. Drink 120oz of water per day with small meals then the last day do a dry fast and don’t drink water or food for 24hrs make sure you are active during this day do some minimal bike riding or some swimming or basket ball or light sparring. It’s intense but you will make weight

    George used to teach mma/kickboxing and some bjj at UFC veteran Brian Stann's gym, Warrior Legion, in Alpharetta, Ga which I attended before he blew up big, 2013. He's a cool guy and I remember he'd always play the same stupid Flo-rida song during kickboxing so when I complained he'd intentionally play it and say it's for me. Glad he's doing so good.
