    So basically i guess its fair to say he walks around 150 easily off camp. Thats a huge cut.

    Really curious to hear about dillashaw now

    There seems to be a prevailing thought that TJ would starch Henry at 135. I do not share this opinion.

    If they rematch I like Cejudo crushing the Snake again.

    Yeah but some of that weight is TJs soul that he took in 20 seconds.

    This is EXACTLY why 125 doesn't need to exist. There are a few 135'ers that cut weight to fight at 125. If you look at guys that are actually built for 125, the division would be literally nothing. Give Henry the shot at 135 and cut out the 125 class all together. Hell you just let the longest regining champ walk in his prime from the weight class. Let the little guys go over to Japan where they will be appreciated and paid more. Its a win win for everyone.

    Cejudo was supposed to save flyweight but he might as well move up and bury it.

    I
    for one think this first fight was tainted from the weight cut. That said, i dont think TJ is too good to get his ass beat by Henry at any weight. The messenger is a monster lol. I look forward to the rematch. People arent considering how much better Henry could look without cutting all that weight. He might have the DC affect and carry much more power. If he has to weigh in at 135 he would be JACKED

    As a big fan of TJ, i am not confident in a rematch at 135.

    Well, you can't dehydrate your bones, as TJ has recently found out.

    If henry weighs 146 in the cage then i see no reason why he couldnt be just fighting at 135

    The only thing I'll said regarding TJ's weight cut is its mostly Sherdoggers making that an issue. I didn't hear TJ or his camp make a big stink about it. In fact I heard them bragging that he'd go to bed the night before on weight. And they did essentially doccuseries segments on it and posted algorithms on his weight. They had it figured out and made no bones about sharing that with the world. I think he was fine and the weight cut didn't cause him to eat a side kick right hand combo immediately after the bell that opened the door for Henry to slap him around.

    People are obsessed with size and most 125ers cut probably 25 lbs and weigh 150 which is still small but not tiny like people believe they are bc of their weight class.

    Cause he can make 125 without performing like crap, thats basically every fighter's mindset cutting weight, he came in lighter vs DJ, and that night TJ was fighting at 149.5lbs vs Cody, some fighters are better weight cutters than others, see Conor, dude looked like shit at the weigh-ins cutting to 145 yet he performed at or near his peak at that weight.
