I would love to see AJ back in the UFC at light-heavy! I hope the UFC will take him back at light-heavy and realize that he can't make the same weight cutting mistakes he made at welter and middle!

6 fight winning streak, no way the UFC won't pick him up if he's available. Even Nate got back. Phone Post 3.0

I doubt the ufc will want to pay him what he wants, but then they desperately need new contenders in LHW so maybe they will. Phone Post 3.0

They should definitely make him an offer. The UFC definitely could use another talented and recognizable LHW, and as much fun as it was to bust on Rumble for missing weight, he hasn't shown any weight-cutting issues at LHW. If Mousasi doesn't drop to MW, Mousasi vs. Rumble would be a great match-up I think.

Mousasi already made the drop. Fighting Machida at mw. Phone Post 3.0

Is Rumble the new great hope, one of those guys like Overeem, Manheof, Kang etc that everyone knew would just wrecked whoever was in the UFC division at the weight they fought at??

No, but there are probably more than a few guys in the UFC at LHW who couldn't handle him.

Guys who lose to Koschek don't beat Jon Jones. I know it's A beat B so B beats C but it's the truth. Phone Post 3.0

He's been doing great and can probably compete with a decent chunk of current LHW's. But, right now I don't see him having anything for Jones, Gufstaffsen, etc Phone Post 3.0
