I'm tired of this call for dominant champions to switch weight classes. Be it GSP, Jon Jones, or Anderson Silva when he was champion. To me, it makes no sense. I think too many people call for it, are stuck in that boxing mentality where going up or down a weight class is a normal thing, and you face a lot of like opponents so there really isn't that much of a difference, let alone that much of a weight jump/drop from one class to the next until you go from light heavyweight to cruiserweight which is 25lbs. To me, it just makes no sense, because in MMA, the jump from one weight class to the next, is 10 - 20lbs, and in the case of heavyweight 60lbs[going by the upper limits of the class]. And you're not facing like opponents when you go up. The vast majority of the time in MMA, the weight class above you is filled with fighters that are far bigger in size, and stronger than you are. And to begin to compete with that, you'd have to drastically alter your fighting style, and your physiology to even have a chance, so why do that? I understand when a fighter moves down in weight class, because it usually signals that they aren't able to compete at the weight class they are currently in. Perfectly acceptable. But to move up because you're dominant? That's just stupid. That would be the equivalent of LeBron James playing center in the NBA because he's too dominant at Small Forward. Or Peyton Manning deciding to play Running back in the NFL because he's too good at Quarterback. Or perhaps Albert Pujols deciding to pitch in the American League because he's just too good of a hitter. Or even Sidney Crosby deciding to become a goalie because he's just too great at being a center/front line player in the NHL. None of those things make any sense in other sports, so why should it make any sense in MMA?
