    He matches up well with everyone in the division. He wouldn't have to worry about cutting weight as much. Only thing that would concern is the amount of high- level striking at the top of the division.

    How do you guys think he would do in the Welterweight division?

    He wouldn't be about to rag doll WWs like LWs.

    I would much rather see him in LW but that weight cut is rough for him

    Maybe if he didn't fast so often he could avoid tiramisu and make weight.

    Because if he barely makes weight he assumes he has advantage over everyone

    because his streght is grappling and control which is harder to implement on bigger opponents

    He'd rather overcome his tiramizu addiction.

    I don't think he would have a problem taking people down at WW. If he doesn't cut so much weight he would be even stronger than he is now.

    ...because only a fight with Conor and a potential rematch if he wins will make his "red pantie" dreams come true.

    He would still be able to take Lawler/Thompson to the ground and maul them

    Since people anointed him as the future lw champ, he wouldn't want to start over in a new division. He's too unreliable to trust anymore in my book. How do you not have your diet together for your first title shot, he's not a champion
