    Do you think that this would be a good idea? I'm not sure If he has future at featherweight and a change of weight class might revitalize his career. What are your thoughts on how he would fair at lightweight?

    That would be a very bad idea. Cub has no problem making FW, and LW is a deeper division with more grapplers which are Cub's biggest weakness.

    Too small for weight cutting LWs. Frankie is bigger than him. Stephens towered over him if I remember right.

    He'll go there eventually if he loses at FW in near future

    He just needs to be a smarter fighter.
