Diary of a Fighter w/ Daniel Swain #6: Weigh-in day!!

It’s Friday morning and weigh-ins are at 7:00PM tonight. First thing I do every morning when I wake up is check my weight. Today I’m 4lbs over the 146lbs limit, which means I’ll have to do a little bit of weight cutting still. To be honest though 4lbs is nothing, I have done much bigger weight cuts in less time then I have to do this measly 4lbs. The weigh ins are at The Black Bear Martial Arts Center in Sandpoint, ID. And will being broadcast live at http://www.unifiedcombatleague.com/ and you can catch the fights here on MMASucka.com on Saturday.

I am asked all the time why do something that involves being punched repeatedly or why would I want to do something so barbaric.
