    Math First:

    DC at UFC 226 = 246 LBS, conservatively 30% BF, probably more.

    246 x 0.70 = 172.2
    172.2 x 0.1 = 189.42

    189.42 is smaller than some modern WWs. 10% BF isn't shredded


    Talking about who would be the first 3 division champ in another thread led to me and a co-worker talking about a hypothetical match up between GSP and DC.

    For the record, DC has a very high BF% and could very easily weigh under 200 lbs lean. Even with conservative estimates in his BF% the math is pretty clear.

    Furthermore, DC does not have a big frame and there are FWs with bigger frames, bigger heads, taller, and longer reaches.

    GSP and DC are roughly the same height and GSP has a longer reach.

    With that all said, how would you see a match up going between GSP and a ripped DC at WW?

    Please let me know what you guys think of this GOAT vs GOAT match up.

    DC at 170?

    Have you seen the dude attempt 205? Towel gate is real.

    How about this though, there is no goat.

    I swear, these GOAT threads are probably up there as some of the most annoying types of threads on sherdog

    Should be GSP vs Jones if it really is GOAT vs GOAT.

    This is a hypothetical disciplined DC who likes to eat clean. LOL.

    Obviously the GOAT is subjective and meaningless in general. Just having some fun here.

    If they did fight, GSP would get dominated. DC is a better wrestler, and has better stand up.

    So you can see some things are ridiculous, but can't see other ridiculous things as ridiculous. Curious...

    Updated thread title so you can understand a hypothetical.

    Khabib/Conor aren't fat though. Couldn't make 135 like a ripped DC at 170.

    GSP is far GOATER for far greater career PPV sales and career pay.

    DC is a far better fighter who'd maul GSP in a fight.

    You seemed to disregard the other guy's hypothetical with Jones. So clearly you are trying to put a "realistic" spin on it. But failing of course.

    This is hypothetical and someone with Jones's frame couldn't make WW, but someone with DC's could. Huge distinction, as big as DC's gut. LOL.

    ....What?
    <{MindBrown}>
    Even this hypothetical "disciplined DC" you speak of could never make WW. Have you ever seen DC?
    The guy is huge, built like a wrecking ball.
    Cmon dude.

    DC killed himself to get down to 205. No chance he's getting to 170 ever ever ever ever ever. Pass.
