    Possibly? But considering that his speed is one of his biggest advantages at heavyweight, i don't think he'd go down to light heavyweight.

    Fantasy match ups between him and some other light heavyweights are fun though.

    Yes, easily. He's only 6'2, and generally weighs in the 240's with a significant gut. If he lowered his body fat, he could definitely fight at LHW.

    Maybe, but I think its much better for him to be at HW where everyone is old age pensioners and beyond slow.

    This. That's a good 15-20 lbs by itself. That puts him at 220-225ish. If he loses the gut AND the head he could make 205 easy. With no head he would also be the best defensive fighter ever since nobody could hit him in the head or ko him with a head shot.

    I think most heavy weights can make LHW. Some could make middleweight.

    Only the super jacked guys like Francis would have trouble

    His height is horribly wrong.

    He is actually around 5'11" - 6'. He's got an extremely heavy frame though, LHW would no doubt be a big cut for him.

    Agreed but would he still carry the same relative power in his hands? If so that’s a scary LHW.

    IMO he'd go pretty far. Still gotta see his TDD.

    Overeem’s a decent grappler and only went 2/10 on TDs. So Bigi has something to work with.

    Why? A win is a win, but he lost all 3 rounds to a retiree Overeem. He's shown nothing that would make him a threat to anyone in that division, much less jones.

    i think Francis could make 205, overeem used to be at 265.
    none of the hw's would be benefit from dropping. it's the division of out of shape lhw's with some exceptions

    He has ab definition at 250. Anthony Johnson was at his highest 240 when he competed and looked significantly bigger against Arlovski
