Massachusetts State Athletic Commission introduce double weigh-ins

The Massachusetts State Athletic Commission have decided to introduce an interesting provision to their set of rules now that the sport of mixed martial arts has been legalised, approving the inclusion of a double weigh-ins ahead of the events.

The following was posted on Sherdog.com earlier tonight:

“The Massachusetts ‘double weigh-in’ provision calls for a fighter to be weighed in no more than 36 hours before his fight and again on the night of the fight. The fighter cannot weigh more than 1.0625 times his initial weight on the second weigh-in.”
