    What weight class do you think he is best suited for?

    What fights at that weight have been your favorite?

    Pre usada it was 155 so post usada he needs to be at 145 to be competitive. Just being real

    155, he will get a few mean losses at 170 and then retire

    155. If he's trianing properly, and his diets in check, thats where he's the most fit, and ready. And there's some entertaining fights for him there like, Justin and Dustin.

    Although they're ranked too high for him ATM.

    He was soundly losing that fight then pulled off the crazy ko. If wonderboy was a killer hed probably have put Pettis away.

    Still feel he would have beat Diaz if he didn't fuck up his hand/get his leg kick checked

    I think LW is best for him, he has never been a particularly strong guy, he normally gets pushed around whoever he fights, would be worse at WW.. unless he fights strikers only.

    He's best as a 155er. Problem is he's been in some wars and he's 32 which is starting the decline big time at LW. We'll see what he's got left when he fights this Diego dude.

    Diaz got lucky. He would have been KO'd stiff. Same with the Jorge fight.

    Bellator weight (shit... are you kidding me? someone else said the exact same thing at the same time?)
    <JagsKiddingMe>

    Seriously, i dont see him beating the current top competition at 155.... Neither at 170...

    So its either an extreme cut to 145 or go to other organization.

    Unless he wants to keep being a gatekeeper in the UFC be it at 155 or 170. He'll win two, lose one kinda deal there right now. At best.

    Those saying Bellayor- is that cause you think he could make a title run there?
