Its about weight drained, just cause you fight at a catchweight doesn't mean the guy is drained, catchweights are called EVEN grounds, learn about them. its to avoid a fighter coming completely down in weight so he is still comfortable and a fighter not having to go all the way up. to make the fight ffair.

Dawson said in negotiations he requested a 170 catchweight but Ward said 168 or no fight and wanted to fight in Oakland.
