07:54 PM ET 11.08 | No. 1 contender Johnny Hendricks is a big, powerful man for the welterweight division and we learned just how big of a weight cut he needs to make in order to hit the 170-pound weight limit for his fights inside of the octagon. Cutting weight is a big part of mixed martial arts, but we previously had no idea how much weight Hendricks would cut in order to fit in his current division. Now, we do. During a recent Twitter Q&A with his fans, Hendricks said that thanks to working with Mike Dolce and the Dolce Diet, he is able to cut down 45 pounds in just eight weeks so that he can hit his mark when he steps on the scale.

Shouldn't "weight cut" be reserved for the amount of weight you lose through dehydration and starvation before getting on the scale? Hendricks lost a lot of fat in that 45 pounds, which is called dieting.
