    All champ champs goes up a weight class only TJ goes for a smaller guy in a lower weight class.

    That doesn't make any sense whatsoever. You just want to bash the guy.

    So one guy is showing he's actually small for the weight class.

    While others showing they know how to cut weight good.

    OK.

    To be fair, Cejudo is a shitload of an easier opponent than Max. Why go up and get starched when you can go down and cruise to an easy title?

    Going down a weight class is more impressive, because it shows that you weren't cutting to your minimum fighting weight and still won the belt. If that criticism is fair for TJ, it's fair for Frankie and BJ and everyone else who ever attempted it.

    If you have two belts you're a chanp champ, whether you like it or not TS.

    If you make weight it's fair game.

    No, they should get props for winning a belt in a division that wasnt their natural weight class in the first place

    That what it means if they are able to drop a weight class and win another belt

    They shouldn't be considered champ champs at all because running from division wrecking the sport when you've got a long line of challengers isn't something to be proud of. Dodson beat Dillashaw and is barely in the top 10, let the line at 135 keep moving.

    Let's see how he looks at the weigh ins first. He's shredded at 135 and doesn't seem to carry any fat at all.

    Dillashaw isn't any smaller for his weight class than BJ Penn, GSP and Randy Couture were for theirs.

    Tj is a legit normal size Featherweight while Max is a huge featherweight. Max has at least 30 lbs on Tj and is also way taller.

    DC is a huge light heavyweight and is actually heavier than stipe when they fought.

    Conor and Eddie are about the same size, Conor is a bit taller while Eddie is a bit heavier.

    bisping is noticeably bigger than GSP but Bisping is also one of the most beatable champ in recent memory.

    Another thing is that max is way more skilled than Eddie, stipe, and Bisping.

    Well he needs to win first before champ. Champ is even spoken about.

    I'm picking cejudo for the upset

    Moving down a division isn't an advantage if you face someone that is big for that division. You will both weigh the same. If GSP moves down to LW, he's wont be bigger or stronger than Khabib or Lee for example.

    When you lose weight, you also lose size and strength. It's mind boggling isn't it?

    Lol DC is not a huge LHW. He's just fat.

    But if by huge you meant fat, then forget what I said.

    What is this supposed to mean?

    You are further proving my point. DC is shorter and has a smaller frame than most LHWs. He just carries a lot of body fat.
