Now I understand there's no reason for him to cut that weight and compete at 205 being that he's champ and all, but I mean surely he can make it. IMO he actually has less muscle-mass than Ryan Bader when looking at a picture of them side to side. There were talks about Frankie Edgar going to 45 even when he was champ, simply because he was a small 55'er and people knew he could drop. So surely, there should be room to talk about Cain going to 205, no?
How do you think Cain would do at 205?
How would he do against Jon Jones/Gustoffson at that weight?
How about against Evans, Davis, Full training camp Shogun?
Anyone who thinks either Cain or JDS could, should, or would go to 205lbs is an idiot.
