    He's pretty much the same muscle mass. The dude has the muscle mass of a 185lber. He just can't seem to cut that fat to get there.

    It highlights how big his HW achievements are.

    DC is impressively athletic. With that excess weight as a HW, he is very fast and explosive.

    Absolutely. His weight he lost wasn't functional.

    I'm waiting to see if he still has the KO power, I think he has the potential to KO jones in this one

    DC would dominate them all again. He is only 30pounds lighter not less skills , strength or ability .

    Yes, all the tools he used to defeat them may be even sharper at this point.

    Did anybody else notice Brittney Palmer looked like a drag queen at the weigh ins?
    It was scary.

    More important question is whether LHW DC or HW DC wins in a fight.

    Surely he's lost some strength. Can't be the same

    I have no idea.
    Would really have loved for him to have taken on a relevant LHW before meeting the champ.
