    Conor has definitely grown in height, that's how you know he's prepared for war

    This was back in 2014:

    What a beast. Said he weighs only a little over 160. But will fighting a cerrone who will surely cut down from atleast the 180s.

    It seems pretty obvious why this fight is at 170:

    1. Fighting at 170 provides more options. Conor already has all options available to him at 155; this fight at 170 will make it easier to justify a future bout for the WW or BMF title or against GSP.

    2. Fighting at 170 offers a built-in excuse. If he loses, he can talk about Cowboy being tree times his size. In this clip, he's already pushing the narrative that Cowboy "doesn't look well at 155. He's a 170 fighter."

    3. If he loses at 170, he seemingly doesn't lose his place in line at 155.

    Dana said no weight cut in the contract so I dont think its allowed. Of course he could do it before hand and go to the weigh in, then rehydrate, but the way dana explained it, neither guy would cut.

    That's not how it works lmfao. Donald cerrone physically weighs in the 180s. He is not a walk around at 170 pound human. He's almost 6'1. Me and Donald cerrone have very similar builds actually. I'm about 6'0-6'1 and physical walk around about 187( In shape).

    Has the built in excuse that he was fighting out of his weight class, should he lose to Cerrone

    He’s come across as more likeable in this three-minute video than his entire 2018/19 interviews combined.
