So i dont know how Silva will do to loose more water than a guy already going to the limits, and assuming that Silva is already doing this to get to his 185, he'll have to loose muscles.
Losing muscle takes time, a lot of time. You can lose some strength rather quickly (couple of weeks), but that's if you become inactive, which is not something you do when you train for a fight.
Anderson Silva does not go down to the limit of water weight loss before his weigh ins at 185. He doesn't even look ripped. He could lose an extra 6lbs I'm pretty sure of it.
