    There's still plenty of interesting match-up's for him at fw:

    Chad Mendes
    Frankie Edgar
    Renato Moicano

    Not to mention good prospects ready to become title challengers:

    Mirsad Bektic
    Zabit Magomedsharipov
    Yair Rodriguez

    People are acting like he's cleaned out the division. He made weight just fine and gave an amazing performance. Why move up? I'm tired of these "super fights." I want a champion who actually goes on a lengthy title reign ala Mighty Mouse or Anderson Silva. Am I alone in feeling this way?

    We don’t need to tarnish a future goat legacy. Let him be here until he needs to move up.

    Why? People gave GSP and Conor shit for giving up their belts and screwing up their divisions. Dillashaw is fighting for the FLW belt next month instead of defending his BW belt against worthy contenders who are forced to pick each other off. But if Holloway does it, it's great?

    Theres not a contender at FW right now. Edgar is really the only one at the moment. GSP didnt screw up the MW division he gave up the belt immediately. It was Bisping that screwed it up.

    TJ should be fighting Moraes but if him beating Henry eliminates the flyweight division then I'm all for it.

    TJ will be fighting the winner of Moraes vs Assuncao next.

    I do think he should cement his FW run with a couple more defenses, then move up when he's cleaned out the division.

    He has some INSANE fights at LW afterwards - Khabib, Cucuy, Conor, Gaethje.

    I kinda want to see him fight Chad if Chad can get a couple of wins under his belt.

    Also Zabit and Mociano are also interesting.

    I don't think Edgar has a chance tbh

    At the end of this month, Mendes is fighting Volkanovski. Moicano is hanging around with no fight. Edgar's gonna be ready early next year. What are you talking about?

    Agree, should keep winning more fights at 145 so long as the doctor is fine with him at the weight class.

    I prefer to see him cut less weight since he walks around 180 plus. Also lw has bigger and more intriguing fights.

    Mendes needs to fight a contender for a shot so if he wins he is still 1-2 fights away. Moicano vs Edgar for the next shot works for me.

    Nobody should cut weight, it's bad for you. Everyone should move up.

    Mendes is already ranked in the top 5. He can easily be the next challenger if he beats Volkanovski.

    If max can make weight at 145, he should be allowed to fight wherever he wants to fight.

    No one cares what you want to see. Max needs to move up, cutting to 145 is detrimental to his health.

    The problem is, Khabib Vs Ferg need to happen First.

    Maybe Max V Poirier for the next #1 contender could be fun, but Max might deserve a Title shot right away.

    Like "legacy" means anything on Sherdog. Jose Aldo gets clowned constantly even though he ran the FW division for almost a decade.

    Sherdog doesn't have the attention span for a legacy.
