In California, fighters have their weights checked on the day of their fights – not just when they have to hit their marks on the scale.

In 2017, the California State Athletic Commission put a plan in place to try to cut back on excessive weight cutting. Within those rules was a cap on how much a fighter could gain from the official weigh-ins to the fight.

If a fighter gained more than 10 percent back before the bout, the commission then could make a recommendation that he or she move to a higher weight class. If a fighter gained more than 15 percent, the commission had plans in place to potentially cancel fights.

At Bellator 286, which took place this past Saturday in Long Beach, Calif., 13 of the 26 fighters on the card gained more than 10 percent of their weight back. Five of those 13 exceeded the 15 percent threshold. MMA Junkie obtained a list of fight-night weights from the CSAC.

Check out the weight gains and percentages for all 26 fighters on the card at Long Beach Arena.
