    i think he should be fighting at 185, maybe even 170, like the case of larkin. he will have a hard time with the likes of wrestlers like cummins, cormier, souza or romero, I just hope he realizes this is mma and he will be spammed with takedowns and clinch which will nullify his striking game

    He may move better.

    If I fought I wouldn't cut more than 12 lbs either.

    I don't agree with the argument that his strking game will be nullified just because he'll have to face a few wrestlers. 205 will be closer to his natural weight, and in theory he should be able to perform closer to his peak capabilities. Amanda Nunes is the only current champ to have won their belt on the mat, a strong takedown defence goes a long way.

    but amanda nunes is a large bantamweight, and female takedowns are not as explosive or diverse, saki may not be effective in the clinch which is sometimes confused as stand up striking

    Seeing as DC is the champ at LHW, there is no point in moving down to MW but if he wanted to, it would be an easy cut.

    Saki spent almost whole of his career fighting monsters at HW and relying on his speed; as long as he had TD and good scrambles he will do just fine ; no reason to take his number 1 advantage

    Dude can hardly make 205, the only way hae makes 185 is if he cuts off a leg.

    If he doesn't have enough grappling skill, he won't do well in MMA regardless of what weight class he competes in.

    No.

    The guy used his phenomenal speed advantage to KO heavyweights during his whole career.

    He already cuts maybe 20 pounds to make LHW, no way he's gonna cut to 185 at his age.

    Rubbish, he's fat at 205 so he's doing it wrong if he's struggling to make the cut. Don't just dehydrate do some cardio, eat less and lose the fat.
    If a quick bit of liposuction was allowed at towelgate he could have been down to 190 in a few minutes.
    Have you ever seen DC with a 6 pack? No because he's fat.
