    If he loses to Usman again, he should at least consider it. He's talked about fighting there before and says he does well against MWs in training.

    In my opinion:

    He beats: Till, Gastelum, Hermansson, Brunson, Hall
    He loses to: Romero, Costa, Whittaker
    50/50: Israel, Cannonier

    Could probably get some top 10 wins just based on his skillset but he’s not a big WW at all. Colby would be best at 165 if it existed.

    he gets KOed badly by any top 10 MW ... there are weight divisions for a reason ...

    He is a perfect sized WW, if he should change division it would be a 165 lbs division, but doesn't exist so ...

    Because Whittaker's TDD is proven against elite wrestlers

    I don't think he'll find much success at MW but at least his cardio will be in good shape.

    He's a small WW. Guys like Romero would literally rip him in half.

    Gastelum would knock his ass out in 1
