Any fighter that can make the weight is not too big. Any fighter that can go 5 championship rounds and defend is definitely not.

I think Rumble Johnson would disagree with this statement.

There isn't a huge difference in weight, but Weidman has the bigger frame as Silva could make 168 when he was younger and had less fat & muscle, while I doubt Chris could fight at WW, looked miserable in the recent embedded series.
ok then.

You start the thread 'Jon Jones is a small LHW based on leg size' and see how that goes.

I acknowledge leg size can very greatly but in terms of 'fight size' I just think leg size has very little to do with defining someone as too big or too small for the division compared to their peers.
