    Stylistically I think Gunnar might actually be better at Middleweight opposed to Welterweight. What do you guys think?

    He's a small welterweight, he's more likely to cut to 155lb rather than put on the extra weight

    Haha he's one of the smallest at 170, he could make 155 without killing himself.

    Gunnar can only do as well as he can strike against fighters with decent TDD. If Gunnar becomes a top tier striker (which I don't see at the moment, but it's possible), then he's trouble, but until then, he's an interesting so-called "Viking" (because "Vikings" are interesting!) who has a nice ground game that he can't really enforce against decent fighters.

    He would be terrible.

    His future lies at LW.

    Btw: Even Woodley, who's a thick looking welterweight, admitted that he would get crushed at MW.

    He's the same size as McGregor. Lightweight sounds better.

    He doesn't even cut weight to make 170, what would possess you to even bring up 185? People have been calling for him to go down to LW cause he's so small at 170 lol
