It seems to be working for Anthony Johnson and Cormier. If you're between weight classes it's not always a bad idea, but it's not a panacea.

People have been doing this since forever.

The only reason they dont get title shots is because they lose the top of the division they just moved to.

Gotta say, I don't think Machida lost to Davis.

To Shogun, sure, but I thought he had that decision in the bag.

I'm pretty sure shogun could cut to 185, He just seems like the type of guy who would hate being on a strict diet.

except Cormier likely could have gotten a title shot at HW if he wanted one.

Florian set the blueprint, not Machida.
