    Still unbeaten there and beat the current champ

    His chances at LW look bad while he never lost at FW and always looked good

    Is this his last chance to get relevant?

    Does he have the hunger to diet and cut weight to reclaim his FW title?

    He cannot make the FW cut anymore. IV's getting banned were the last straw for Connor being at FW.

    Big question is whether he will want to make the cut.

    I'd rather he fight Cowboy :D

    He should stick to LW. Better opponents available and Max would wreck him at FW these days.

    Coke bloat precludes him from returning to FW.

    They lose weight in the short term, but long term use cause the dreaded coke bloat, which kills metabolism and causes one to keep weight on.

    I think he could, but why??? He's not a big LW by any means, he's average sized at best. I just can't see him wanting to put his body through the same torture TJ just did. I'm pretty sure if he dropped to 145lbs right now, Max would be the bigger of the two fighters on fight night.

    Lol no way he makes that cut. He wants a 165 division. He has a rough time making 155 these days.

    He could make it if he put his mind to it
    It's not ideal or necessary tho
    He only started at 145 to fulfil his double champ dream

    IVs were banned when he made championship weight against Aldo
