    He would dominate that division.

    Hendricks is a real champion in the wrong division.

    Meat and cheese, these are the reasons Hendricks can't fight at 155.

    Every build is different, however I imagine the amount of weight he gains while nor training is the main issue.
    With his new focus on diet and health it might be something we see in the future.

    Without Conor, the 155 lbs division is stuck in the mud. The championship fight is on free TV. Why would Hendricks cut an extra 15 lbs for that?

    IDK.... At 5'1 why couldn't Sean Sherk make 125?

    For the same reason that Wonderboy doesn't fight at HW since he's the same height as Cain and Fedor.

    Not everyone is built the same, and Hendricks barely makes 170

    he's 5'9, but he has a big frame. He looked drained just trying to make 170. Making 155 would be a death struggle for him

    He's a thick 170 pounder. Much thicker then most dudes at 170.

    His extra muscle mass is where his power and slams come from. Been a while since we've seen them work like they used to though. Happens when you're fighting only the best guys at the top.

    He could slim down for sure, but the lifestyle change would be hell.

    Better to go wreck Bellator 170s I bet

    I'm not for the solution being drop down all the time. Hendricks looked thinner tonight I don't think he does 155 comfortably.

    With the way he looked tonight, he could probably make LW.
