    We're seeing how it is working out for Masvidal, Pettis, DC etc. Fighting at your natural body weight (or not much under) is proving successful for a lot of guys

    Even for creating fun new match ups it's interesting to see who could go up.

    What guys would you like to see go up?

    There's a few obvious ones - Till, Vick, Romero, Jones, Penã etc

    i think Ortega needs to go up to 155lb. I think he would be a lot better there.

    Khabib would be more of a monster if mma had the same as boxing weights

    Khabib at 160 middleweight is scarier than 155 lightweight Khabib imho

  9. It hasn’t worked for Masvidal at all
    He’s 2-2 in his last 4.
    Pettis has one win and he was getting embarrassed before a Hail Mary KO.
    DC started at heavyweight so doesn’t really count.

    Vick isn’t very good whatever the weight.
    Romero is fine either way
    Jones is a natural 205er, he has never had weight problems.
    Pena isn’t very good.

    Jacare should go to LHW, he would get an easy title shot in no time at all.

    For me weight cutting should be forbidden, fight at your natural weight and fuck that shit.

    It's the worst part of the game for me, and they're killing themselves doing it.

    Yeah bro I'll go with my stance that it worked for Jorge...
     
  16. 2-2 in his last
    It really hasn’t. Whenever he face true elites he lost. He beat askren who has 0 top 5 wins and he beat Till who has one top 5 win(robbery)
    Masvidal and his run is massively overrated.

    Zabit, Luis Pena, Till and Jones are the first four that immediately come to mind.

    Guys near 6 ft tall trying to fight at FW should be forbidden. Eat a fucking sandwich, move up and fight guys your size.

    Well he is finishing brutally these days, maybe just getting really used to 170...He put Till out cold who previously shown he had a pretty good chin, you saw that Woodley fight, i assume? Woodley gave Till a beast of a shot and Till was surviving, even through some bad gnp. Askren was what it was. Vicious.

    Luke Rockhold should go up to heavy weight, it will solve all of his chin issues and he'll be so much faster and more technical than these unskilled heavy weight bums...
