    He did not have problems making 155 iirc and he would have a huge size advantage there over most of his opponents.

    Why is he fighting 15lbs above then?

    Because he's fighting a guy that hasn't ever fought anyone before so he doesn't care.

    Cutting gets tougher as you age, maybe being a 170'er is better for him

    He probably can't do it anymore. Happens to a lot of fighters as they grow older. Pvz cuts 15 lbs now. She used to not cut at all. Cyborg can't make 135 now. Some young guys will soon show up here and say how easy it is to just "cut" muscle.

    Because Conor McGregor did it and it's cool.

    Seriously though. I think this is the reason.

    You don't just give up muscles like those if you don't have to. If you were as aesthetic as Sage, you'd understand.
