    What if Roy had fought at CW and tried to win a title there, instead of feasting on cannon fodder at LHW?

    Too much weight covering up his quick twitchiness.

    The RJJ we picture in our heads belonged at 160/168

    I don’t remember cruiserweight having more talent during that time period.

    I personally wouldn’t want to see him more watered down than he already was at light heavy.

    if anything he should have dropped back down. it’s pretty wild when you’re so far ahead of everyone your size, they want you to fight dudes WAY bigger than you for the sake of “competition”

    cruiserweight was even weaker than LHW was back then. if he did that, people would just say he was ducking montell griffin or dariusz michaelczewski

    Yeah cruiserweight hasn't had many eras of strength so he'd probably clean it out but still he wouldn't be the same rjj......at middleweight he was legitimately quicker than most lightweights
