As an MMA fighter myself, who has had to cut as much as 13 kgs in as little as 8 weeks, I will say this: It is very possible to cut a lot of weight in short periods of time.

Ideally I'd want to stay on the outside using footwork while peppering with jabs and the occasional straight left. I might use the uppercut to punish them moving into the clinch, but primarily I'd want to rely on angling out rather than winning the dirty boxing fight. To speak to the mindset behind this kind of question: this theoretical approach is rather ...

The most extreme weight-cutting I've heard of was Nate Green's Bigger/Smaller/Bigger experiment, where he gained 20lbs in 4 weeks, lost it all in 5 days, and gained most of it back in 1. Might be work a look, as the techniques are from John Berardi and Martin Rooney, who both train MMA fighters.

The Wikipedia page on Judo at the 2012 Summer Olympics Qualification states (emphasis and italics mine): The top 22 men or 14 women from the world rankings in each division qualify, subject to a limit of 1 judoka per NOC (National Olympic Committee) per division. Further continental quotas (Europe 25, Africa 24, Pan-America 21, Asia 20 and Oceania ...
