It has been reported that dehydration inhibits performance and results in health risks that can potentially lead to untoward health events including death. MMA governing bodies at the national and international levels along with coaches should take a proactive approach in education and implementation of weight management regulations that prevent rapid weight loss among MMA athletes.

Body composition is a factor contributing to sport performance. Assessment of body composition is an important component of the ongoing monitoring of athletes interested in improving their performance.

The skinfold method [Image: Lang Skinfold Caliper] of measuring body fat is practical, economical, accurate and non-invasive. Results come close to underwater weighing and DEXA, assuming the administrator has the experience required to ensure accuracy. Measurements are taken with a caliper at several body sites. Results, expressed in mm, are put into a formula to calculate body fat and lean body mass percentage.
