Fighting Weight?

How do you work out what weight you would be best to fight at. Im currently about 6,3 about 93 kg. What would i be best to do cut down to 84 even 80 if poss or bulk up with muscle then cut back down. I understand you should fight at a weight you are strongest at but im confused. Im tempted to bulk up a bit and cut the fat right down as i dont want to cut down to 80 -85 and feel dead skinny. Has anyone got any experience with fight weight and what to do.

i currently walk around 6kg heavier than what i fight at n i find it comfortable to make weight even for same day weigh ins but has took me nearly 2 years to find out that that is the weigh i feel strongest at ive dropped from fighting at 80 78 76 n 73 so in my eyes it al depends on u n how commited u are n how easy ure body can cut everyone is different . day before weigh ins in my eyes are even easier to reach your target as u can just cut water day b4 but should never do that on same day weigh ins as ive witnessed can have a very bad outcome , hope it helps a lil

Strength isnt directly related to size ;-)

I'm 6'4", walk around at about 87kg and fight at 80kg.
Depends on how big you are naturally though, I'm pretty damn skinny.
