I ask this because I cant respect someone that weights below 150lb even if its the best pound for pound so thats why I dont watch LW and under weight classes fights, but with this shocking news about their normal weight maybe I will start to watch them.
Why do people restrict themselves for no reason other than to fuck with themselves? Lol prime example right here. So u dont watch lw and under because u dont respect them? Lmao

Welter Aldo and Barao would be really interesting, imagine one of them vs blonde Koscheck?

as sherdogers corrected me, the right phrase should be "because I dont consider they
(LW and under) have an intimidating body type".

But dude, lots of less talented fighters cut like that too. There are girls who cut 20 lbs. Guys like Hendricks and Alves cut 30 lbs.

I'm from Natal and met one of Barao's training partners...

Who happens to be the mma coach at the gym where I work out, at Natal (city of the UFN Shogun vs Hendo 2).

He told me personally that Barao had trained with him that day (2 days ago) and weighted 78kg (171.6 pounds). By the way, I met Jussier Formiga there too, who seemed a very nice guy.
