The Anderson at 195 pound figure is ridiculous. Sorry Silva fans. He definetly is a big MW. The same Rogerio Camoes said this a a couple of days before the Bonnar fight last October when talking about Silva fighting at LHW-
Quote by Anderson's trainer Rogério Camões interviewed by Sportv.com.
"The hardest thing about fighting at MW is to got down to 84KG (185lb), but he typically fights between 91kg and 92kg (200-202lb
). Fighting at LHW he has the advantage of not needing such a big weight cut... I can guarantee you that Anderson is very strong and will fight at around 95 or 96kg (209-211lb)
, with a lot of speed".
In a follow up, Google Translate that article. Anderson Silva's trainer knows best. Sherdoggers need to stop with that Anderson is 195 pounds fight night talk. Anderson Silva is 202-205 pounds fight night from what Rogerio Camoes and Ed Soares stated last year on twitter.
