I do not want him to fight Whitaker, Yoel or Weidman.
I will enjoy see Conor at HW
Nikita K at HW was not IMO where he belongs. I would like to see him focus on LHW.
It seems many of the LW fighters are freaking giants..(it's that 15lb jump to WW that's a big deal)
If Khabib misses weight for this fight he is definitely in the wrong division
He should move up and beat the living shit out of DC.
Gus LHW >>>> DC LHW
Beat Lawler and Lawler is a former mw. I think we is a good fit for him, he's about the same height as Woodley
205 is an entire division of people who are scared of HWs. Not only that but nearly every fighter in the UFCcuts at least ten pounds, therefore every fighter in the UFC could move up a weight class.
He'll always get out muscled at WW - by the wrestling guys at WW
Lol Ortega and Max walk around bigger than Gunnar Nelson.
That should give you an idea as to how insane weight cutting has become.
LHW is also a division for guys too heavy to cut to MW. Your average LHW walks around 225-230. The big ones like Gustafsson (who said he could easily weigh over 240 if he wanted to on Joe Rogan's podcast) could fight at HW and not even be outsized. Stipe weighted 243 vs DC so that should say it.
You could say that about all the non wrestlers against wresters in any division.
weighs 184 in cage. not really. he is fine at WW.
coving4on is actually small for the division. only 180 lbs in cage.
i would really like to see Holloway at 155, there would be so many great matchups available for him
Most of these fighters need to move to their proper weight class.
All this weight cutting slows them down and gasses them out.
As fans, we're not seeing many of them at their best, so when we do see the rare few who don't weight cut, the fighter looks phenomenally fit or grossly outsized (Joe Duffy Vs James Vick still pisses me off).
Rumble moving up closer to his weight at LHW did him loads of good for his energy levels come fight night. He just looked so much more explosive than all the other LHW. His only problem was not having an answer to DC's wrestling.
If Rumble didn't retire, he could've just kept battering all the other up,n,coming LHW's and we would have a Woodley/Thompson situation.
Weight cutting ruins it for the fans on two levels.
One, we are seeing fighters more chinny and more lethargic.
Two we aren't even seeing fights as they wind up in hospital or they can't make the weight. Max Holloway not even being able to reach LW division a class above his usual weight lost me some respect for him.
I've stopped giving a shit about the belts since most champs who win it are oversized and by the time they have it, they can barely make most of their fights from weight cutting.
I mean, titles can be stripped from injuries and pay disputes to begin with. Now there is the third headache of the champion not even being able to reach his weight class.
All the fighters themselves don't give a shit about the belts. They just want main event spots for the bigger pay day. Notice how Woodley didn't care about his title but started crying when receiving his black belt. Says it all really.
