Robert Whittaker would easily beat everyone at Light Heavyweight right now.

    So some would be skeptical about this because they think he is too small, but contrary to popular opinion, Whittaker is actually big for 185. Just because he moved up from 170 doesn't mean that he is small, he walks around at 215+lbs and his cage weight is around 205, which is the same as guys like Rockhold and Weidman.

    LHW is weak as shit, and with DC gone and Jones expected to be suspended for a while, Whittaker would undoubtedly be the best at that weight. Who knows if Gus will ever be the same after his injuries, and Whittaker would easily beat Manuwa, Smith, Oezdemir, Thiago Santos etc.. I think Whittaker even beats a healthy Gus, let alone an injured one.

    Couldn't wait to get that yellow belt to make troll threads?

    Isn’t Yoel at 205 now. Couldn’t beat him easily either time they fought.

    Yet he couldn't even beat Wonderboy. He hasn't even fought anyone as champ except Romero where he scraped by with decisions. This ain't it chief.

    Yoel missed weight and Whittaker broke his dominant hand early in the fight. Whittaker would be even better at 205.
    Lol Whittaker was fucked from the weight cut.

    He would kill Wonderboy at 185, who's not an easy fight for anyone at Welterweight.

    That's not a bad shout TS - LHW is unquestionably an embarrassing shitshow and since he quit depleting himself to make 170 he's clearly a very different fighter - but DC is a huge ask even for a wrestler-killer like Rob The Reaper.

    Where did you get the info about his cage weight?

    Whittaker was a WW. He would get crushed at 205.

    Saw it on twitter before UFC 225 just after Yoel missed weight. They said Yoel expected to be 210 on fight night and Whittaker 205.

    That's a huuuuge stretch. I think most in the top 10 would beat him.

    It's believable enough, I'd just like to know who was posting the info.

    Hopefully more commissions do what CA did for UFC-227 and we get more publicly released fight night weights.

    Gus may almost never fight, but when he does he's no cupcake. Don't see anyone at MW beating him.

    He couldn’t beat Yoel at 185... he’d get abused at 205

    He'd beat most of the top 10.
    Gus and maybe volkan would give him problems
