    Man looks like this at 170 and still looked puffy. At 155 he’d be shredded and would dominate imo. Shame about his eating habits being so poor and with his losses hopefully a move to Bellator is in his future. Bye Fatselum enjoy the tacos after more losses.

    SO he'll dominate at 155 just because he's shredded huh...

    OK so what is the logic that he will dominate at 155 then?

    Yes because having abs and being severely dehydrated makes you a better fighter.

    Yeah that was a 185 fight.
    I’m the 3rd to say it and therefore it’s established

    Mexican power scales with fat. Dude would be knocking people out at SHW. Would definitely dominate the classic UFCs.

    People have different body types. Kelvin is an extreme endomorph, he's just naturally an extremely thick dude. You're just basing it off of his height and assuming that just because he's 5'9" and other 5'9" guys can make 155, he could too, which makes zero sense. In reality he could never, ever make 155 without cutting off a leg. He can make 170 with a very strict diet and a tough cut, but some guys just don't feel as good when they're cutting weight. People make the same argument with guys like DC, Fedor, etc. Some dudes are just thicker and it's not realistic to assume they could somehow change their body type and move down weight classes without severely impacting their performance.

    If Nelson took fighting seriously he would have been the 185 pound champ!

    Different body types have different strong and weak points. Look at Cormier

    Dude enjoys his tamales too much. He’s said it himself. He has no self-discipline.
