    - relaxing at Ali's house
    - excited for GSP's Hall of Fame induction, has always admired him
    - moving out to Arizona to get out of comfort zone, train with Henry Cejudo
    - is going to start working harder to finish fights
    - considering hiring dietician, will take time to cut down to welterweight, possibly returning next year
    - excited to see how Henry can help him elevate his game to the next level
    - predicts Ortega to win by submission (admits possible Mexican bias)

    The greatest overachiever in mma? What he accomplished at 185 despite being clearly undersized is unreal.

    All those years he wasted at 185 when he could've just got his diet under control and probably had fought for the belt by now. He gave Izzy a good fight though.

    Itsy Bitsy Dietici could do wonders for Kelvin's career. But it might be too late now. His body might not wanna go back to the lack of lard.

    So his plan is to cut weight and have Henry Cejudo coach him? I get they are buddies but it's weird hes talking about a guy who weights 50 pounds less than him and does not have any accolades as a coach as his hope for improving in the future

    I doubt it. He's just not discipline enough.

    Colby is not a small WW frame wise like gastelum is in 185. And he cut like 10lbs to make 170.

    Good to hear he's planning on moving down. Hope it's not too late for him. He's still young but he's got some mileage now.

    Interesting to see who he gets matched up with at 170!

    Seems like he’s doing what he needs to do. Obviously, something wasn’t working given the losing streak and needs to change. Now if he can actually stay disciplined enough to make the needed changes to succeed remains to be seen. He’s only 29, not too late for him.
