Do you think Gustaffson could move down to MW and try his luck on that division?

    Plus this is the second time he's having motivational issues in the past 2 years. You know what they say, when you are one foot out of the door it's time to retire.

    Considering his size and skill set he would smush everyone in MW. But good luck getting 6'5 and like 235 lbs Gus down to 185. Would have to remove his internal organs to make it work

    Are you joking? Gus is a big guy. He'd more likely move up to HW.

    He would be drained and a shell of himself.

    No way he'd make 185. If anything he'll move up to HW.

    He would have to get as lean or dare I say leaner and more emaciated than Conor gets to make 145. Kendall Grove is 6'6 and can make 185, so it's not completely out of the question.

    He is too big for MW even for LHW. He could be HW.

    Gustafsson could have real success at HW. There is no way he makes MW.

    gus has shown a lot of potential man. He still may be able to pull it off at 205.
     
  20. He would be a competitive heavyweight, I'm pretty sure of that. Especially after the Cormier fight. He has a complete game.
