Finally someone said it. Sherdog's fascination with "walk around weight," is incredibly annoying and stupid, it's completely irrelevant. Some fighters gain a lot of weight when they aren't in training for a fight, some fighters maintain their fight weight. So if you're comparing two fighters "walk around weight," in the same division, one fighter might be 20 pounds heavier than his fight weight and the other might be right on his fight weight,making comparing fighters "walk around weight," completely irrelevant.

Given Conor's "stay ready so you don't have to get ready" motto, him needing a month to make FW seems a bit redundant...

Conor is incredibly lean at featherweight. He has tall and quite big arms for his body type since he seems to have a very low bodyfat percentage and his torso isn't really big. And it's not that he is out of shape when he walks around at 170. He has said that featherweight is becoming a bit harder to make and that he wanted to move up to lightweight very soon.

I think in the same video with Ariel he mentions being 166. In this picture I'm about 5'7" (still am) and probably a bit lighter than usual around ~140, here's what I look like next to Ariel who I took to be around 5'9"-5'10" and 170-180 range



Conor ar 5'8" - 5'9" and 160-170 sounds right to me.


Unrelated: Court McGee is massive you guys. Stann is a bit taller but court is a refrigerator compared to lean stick-ass me and Stann
