Following the untimely passing of Yang Jian Bing from complications from a complicated weight cut, ONE Championship bans weight cutting by dehydration. Fighters who are signed to the promotion will now be competing at their walking weight and will be weighing in up to three times, plus they must pass a barrage of additional tests leading up to the event. The precautions will begin with One Championships 35, which is currently scheduled for early 2016. This is a big step for one of the biggest MMA promotions in all the world and it will be interesting to see if their new methods take shape in other promotions as well.
