If RDA wins will he drop down to 145 and take that belt also?

    I think if RDA smashes Conor in glorious fashion he could very well drop down to 145 and take that belt too. That would be awesome and a sweet turn of events. It would indeed be cool history and a great story line.

    RDA could very well hold the two belts before Conor does. How sweet would that be!!!

    I don't think his frame would allow it. He's pretty lean at weigh-in day as a LW.

    I think he could do it. It would be awesome to see that.

    Dr Frankenstein would have to fit him with some smaller bodyparts if he's gonna make 145

    He would likely have health problems he's a pretty big lightweight. If anything he could move up to 170.

    RDA is not a huge lightweight and Conor fans have said that all the time. It is very possible.

    If RDA can make 145 he can do absolutely anything.

    It has nothing to do with being a hater. It would just be great fights and history being made.

    The UFC would never allow it. They would force him to vacate his belt first. Then give him the Frankie Edgar treatment and make him wait forever to get the title shot.

    Rematch at 145? Dont know if RDA can make the weight.

    Also it probably depends on the way he wins. If it is a boring hump decision I dont believe Dana would be down.

    I highly doubt they would deny him that if he brutalizes Conor. They are setting the precedence for other fighters to do it by letting Conor do it. If they don't it would open up legal issues and other cans of worms that they don't want opened.

    No way in hell RDA makes 145. Especially with the iv ban.

    If RDA beats Conor at 155 and then drops down and takes the belt at 145 then it would open up a lot of great fights for RDA.

    I think RDA matches up really well against Mendes,Aldo,Siver and Holloway no doubt about that.

    RDA could very well run through them.
     
  18. If Conor can make that weight I'm sure RDA also. Now who is more natural in that weight, hard to say. It would a very intriguing turn and how unpredictable this game can be.
     
  19. I love the question and idea. Would be a funny turn of events. Would he have to beat Conor twice then?
