    Conor dwarfed Dennis Siver and Conor is listed and 5'8". There looked to be at the very LEAST 2 inches separating the two in height (probably more.)

    This goes to show how big Conor is for the division and reveals that he may have to move up to 155 eventually. He did after all look very drained during a post-fight interview.

    Not again with this retarded logic. If he can make 145 then he can make 145. What the hell does height have to do with anything.
    MMA has weight divisions, not height divisions.

    I don't particularly like Conor or Jones, but people making such retarded arguments are literally grasping at straws.

    He's listed as 5'9".

    Anyway he looked pretty even with Poirier.

    I just think it's funny you're trying to say Conor isn't too big for 145, and you argue that he's the same size as a guy who decided he was too big for 145 lol.

    You don't see what's funny about that?

    I'm not sure what your point is......unless you like to point out shit that everyone can see. I suspect you'd be a real pain in the ass to go driving with.

    No. I don't recall anyone ever saying Poirier was too big (or even big in general) for the division. He spent the majority of his career at 145.

    Real question or troll thread? He was CW featherweight and lightweight champ.. He plans to do the same in the UFC.. It has been made clear many times he prefers to fight more comfortably at 155

    See above...

    If his health is at risk then yes. That being said, he would get beat up by many 155ers.

    Poirer himself said he was too big for the division. That's why he's moving to 155....

    Come on bud don't take this too seriously it was just funny of all the people at featherweight to compare Conor to its the one guy who moved up to 155.

    It's funny that's all buddy. Also if you want to get technical he's had 9-fights at LW and 11-fights at FW, and now he's back up to 155. So it's not like he's always been a featherweight.

    What is funny is that no one ever talked about how huge Poirier was for 145, but now Conor is is huge for the division despite looking the same size.

    Oh and as for Poirier saying why he is changing classes, what else is he going to say? I realized I'll never win a title and so I figure I'll make it easier on myself?

    I never said Conor was huge for the division. I think if you make weight you should fight wherever you want I don't care.

    I just thought your observation was funny and you got your panties in a bunch.

    Siver is shorter than most. GOAT is ducking 155 but picking a fight with Aldo? I don't think so. He just destroys divisions one belt at a time.
