Best Answer

Whenever two fighters, or a governing body set a fight for a for a weight class that does not exist. This is commonly used for when two fighters from different weight classes agree to fight each other. So if a fighter that weights 170 lbs fights another fighter weighing 190, they might agree to fight at a catch weight of 180 lbs to make the weight difference for each fighter less drastic.
