    He's probably the biggest WW on the roster. Many doubt he will make weight for his title fight against Woodley. And he's 25 right now, the weight cut will only get harder if he grows. I just don't see him at WW for much longer.

    So if he is forced or chooses to move up to MW, do you see him having success against the current crop of MWs?

    If he gets his wrestling up to par, yeah.

    He vs Bobby Knux would be insane.

    He will have to adjust to the generally bigger guys cuz he likes to use his reach alot but either way, I don’t think he cracks top 5. Definitely not top 3

    If his defensive wrestling/grappling holds he can beat anyone.

    There are not many good strikers at MW and guys like Romero or Jacare are close to retirement.

    I’d like a fight between him and Mousasi, but it’s not going to happen haha. Till needs to improve his wrasslin though, there are bigger and stronger guys in 185.

    He hasn't fought a single wrestler but has been taken down by two strikers. Jacare, Romero, Weidman all have his way with him.
