It's definitely possible as JDS could easily weigh in at 235 and Cain could very easily weigh in at 230. He'd have to be a tremendous talent though, cause if he wasn't a great wrestler Cain would ragdoll him.

I don't know, but I'd say it's certainly possible for a 220HW to cut to LWH.
Easily.
So I don't see any injustice either.

20 lbs is a lot at hw. You Are talking nearly 10% sizedifference. It is a huge advantage.
Well that 20lbs would be huge at 125 vs 145 or even WW-MW, is something we don't even need to say.
But why are you so sure that 20 lbs makes such a difference at HW in MMA?
There's not much proof of it.

Pride FC Fedor would have (T)KO'ed decision Dan in a more brutal way.

Athleticism isn't skill but it can also determine a fight. And most of the time the more skilled fighter wins so you can easily ".....if he's not more skilled". And Fedor was more skilled than Hendo and lost to him, Walt Harris isn't super skilled but wasn't only much bigger but also more athletic and had better boxing again you can't just take skill out of the equation and Rumble beat Arlovski even thought Arlovski had "only" a 15lbs weight advantage but Arlovski has already weighed 250+ so it was his decision to weigh in lighter and he didn't think that size would give him an advantage

Doubtful, since a guy who would weigh in at HW at 220 could probably just cut down to 205....

Unless he doesn't want to.
