    Other than Gus, what’s stopping him from running through the entire division?

    Yoel is the most overrated fighter ever on sherdog. The dude standup sucks, has no cardio & his wrestling for mma is nothing to brag about, he also has no bjj.

    Yeah, I mean - the guy who couldn't win a belt at 185 is sure to be unstoppable at 205 ...

    not saying that he wouldn't do good, but let's not hand him the belt and make him some unstoppable force before he even fights

    You know, probably about half the fighters at 185 should move up to 205. Institute better weight cutting rules and it would happen. Suddenly the ghost town that is 205 has some fighters in it.

    I’m a Yoel fan but his optimal weight class is 185. At LHW he’s going to be carrying around useless extra mass unlike DC at HW who knows how to use it. Yoel’s strengths at MW are power, speed and explosiveness. The slight increase in power he may gain from moving up doesn’t justify the loss of Speed, quickness and ability to explode out of nowhere.
