    Does nyone else think Tyson Pedro should be fighting heavyweight?

    Seems like 205lbs takes alot out of him..he certainly seems big enough and hes young..i think hed be better suited there maybe even a title challenger by the end of 2019..thoughts ?

    Think he could be contender at 205... but both are weak divisions.

    Based on his frame and age, he looks more of natural hw then lhw..he dropped OSP before being subbed..he might have performed better at hw without the weight cut

    iE : he would be bigger and stronger perhaps put OSP out cold instead of stunning him..and wouldnt have been out muscled on the floor..

    Its possible but he strikes me based on his frame and how soft he comes in body wise that 205 is the wrong class for him..

    I wish mine had thoughts. That might have saved me from letting him put himself in places he didn't belong. Alas, I have a "shoot first, ask questions later" kind of dick that doesn't appreciate forethought

    Also, if Pedro's soft at Light Heavyweight, I don't think moving up is the answer. OSP is a good, underrated fighter. He's just never going to beat the elite, but he's a great gatekeeper. I wouldn't put too much on the loss. Tyson will be back and a wiser fighter, and may even avenge that loss to an older OSP one day

    No, the problem here is technique, Pedro is a light heavyweight.

    Guy who got smushed and out-muscled by OSP should fight BIGGER guys?

    He tried to take down OSP.

    And the lulz ensued.

    Tyson is irrelevant
    It's not that 205 takes it out of him
    It's that.. he's not very good and has been spoon fed bums and you bought it
