So if you're a well-rounded athlete, you can finish those guys. You can find ways to finish those guys.

"With 55-pounders and below, good luck, man. Everybody's good all around -- they're good wrestlers, they're good jiu-jitsu guys, they're good standup guys, they're game to throw down and they're always in shape. 170 is kind of like the limbo -- like there's some well-rounded guys in there. [Georges St-Pierre] was the champion so long because he was the most well-rounded and usually in the best shape. But that's kind of like the whole new guy -- that's why Rory MacDonald does well. He's in shape, he's got pretty good jiu-jitsu, he's hard to take down but he's got good standup. He's well-rounded with good shape. Those are the guys that are hard to beat."

"You start getting in the 185's, 205, heavyweight, they start being one-dimensional, two-dimensional fighters," says Thomson. "They're not mixed martial artists. They're not as good as the 55-pounders and below," Thomson said. "They're just not. To me that's just a fact."
Sounds like somebody has a Napoleon complex.
