I only respect fighters that move up in weight.

    I feel like you completely ignored my fact-based post, and replied with more stuff you pulled out of your buttocks.

    Where did you hear Conor cuts over 30 pounds when he couldn't even bulk to 170?

    This.


    If I recall correctly the term was invented as a way to compare Sugar Ray Robinson to the HWs.

    Ts is a dumb kid, let's get over it.
    He doesn't respect the majority of fighters. nuff said.
    Let's just end this thread and don't give him attention.

    When someone truly moves up in weight (BJ Penn back in the day), it's great. But saying DC moved up in weight to HW is just false revisionist history and shows how little you know about the sport.

    I enjoy champions who consistently defend their weight class multiple times, rather than chasing a superfight at a different weight class and holding up the division. The odd superfight is fun too though. I'm sure Jon will fight at HW eventually, but I don't see why anyone cares that much. He'd be one of the lightest HW's on the roster in terms of walk around weight if he moved up, it's not like his cut to LHW is astronomical.

    Then leave. But you can't because you are too triggered by facts you just had to add to my thread

    Most the fighters that "move up" are actually moving to the REAL weightclass.

    So really, you should respect them less for moving down in the first place.

    I don't care if you move up or down a weight class as long as you are fighting legitimate competition.

    meh. not necessary IMO. i actually dig it when guys try to take over an entire division and hang out there exclusively (GSP). no reason you can't stay wherever you feel the most comfortable.
