    Should've been a catchweight fight.

    Wand & Sonnen were going to fight at 205, Vitor was out, so most likely he was closer to 205 than 185, and now with only a few weeks to cut they decide to have it at 185?

    Doesn't make any sense IMO.

    Anderson Silva can do it because he has the time to do it

    Chael could easily do it - but not on this time frame

    If he's already in shape at 235, there's no way he makes 185 with this little time.

    When did Anderson cut 50 LBS in 6 weeks?

    People always complained anderson was too big for middleweight, which was total BS. He fought at WW for fucks sake.

    Weidman is bigger than Anderson is, and he's not too big for middleweight either.

    Sonnen has only 30+ days to cut roughly 50 pounds. The fight with Wand was supposed to be at 205.

    They should do it at Franklin catch weight (195)

    That comes from people confusing dieting with cutting. Anderson at 235 is fat as hell. He usually diets down to around 200 and cuts from there.

    So according to Vinny, he's done it before.

    So did Anthony Johnson.

    Anderson is big at Light Heavyweight.

    Thats a ridiculous statement...When Anderson fought Forrest, Forrest was much bigger than Anderson...If Anderson was a big Light Heavy, then he would have moved up and stayed there a long time ago.

    Under the circumstances, I say a 205 or catch weight fight should be warranted.

    Will be interesting... Hope he doesn't look like he did vs Bisping.

    That just means Forrest is even bigger, not that Anderson isn't big there himself. He didn't move up to Light Heavyweight because the competition was easier at Middleweight. He handpicked Forrest, Irvin, and Bonnar.
