Iceman would've been unknown

Tito would be speaking in slurs

Loyoto would've been champ

I doubt he would have been a dominate champ like Jones, but I could see him holding the title, and maybe defending it once. The division would have still been super competitive. I still think Chuck, Rampage, Machida, Shogun, and Rashad would have held the title at least once until Jones, Gus, and Cormier arrived.

He should've been causing ruckus at middleweight. 210 to 185 is normal cut ratio mw.

He's gonna be champ in THIS lhw division. Dude is a savage. Him and Cormier are gonna beat Jones into the #3 spot. Jones without his insane size advantage hasn't looked nearly as good. Gus gave him all kinds of problems.

I don't know, he is a better fighter now than he was 4 years ago even though he was cutting to much

You could actually be onto something there.

He does seem to have the strength and power for HW.

He would have a bigger speed advantage. (Against most)

The reach would be easier to deal with than jones or Gus (not by much)
