What is Worse? A UFC Fighter Cutting 20-40 lbs of weight or being out almost a year?

I would say the cut because in pratice you can simulate a fight and practice with teammates but there is no simulating a weight cut and i think it takes a more physical toll

 

This. These guys spar, roll, fight all year. I Think physically draining yourself right before a fight is far worse than fighting at your gym for a year before an official fight.

 

Also, MAJOR ring rust would be 2+ years.

For some fighters, i'm sure it isn't a factor. Someone like Josh Kos probably has no such issue.

 

Most are very masterful of their emotions - but they're still human.

 

In any situation, no matter how experienced you are, getting into a ring to fight infront of thousands of people, when one slip can cost you the fight/ your job/ even your career...

Most athletes compete at least once a month - but fighters at the top level, sometimes only twice a year.

 

When a fighter talks about ring-rust, he's usually talking about confidence.
