He said after the Dream MW tournament he couldn't make the cut anymore. He's been fighting at HW and LHW since, not to mention K-1. Guy is a beast

I didnt take it as fighter bashing either,I just thought Glovegate was being extra sensitive. Weight cutting is very diffecult and a lot of non wrestlers don't have the disire to cut.

You've clearly never cut weight before.

If he can find success without cutting weight more power to him. He can always keep that drop to 185 in his back pocket for a rainy day. Phone Post

Gene Pitney - Who would he have a better shot at beating....Jones or Anderson?
Anderson

But Anderson would beat Jones.

Jones would keep Mousassi at reach then take him down at will.

Anderson Moussasi would be all stand up which gives Gegard more of a chance but I'd still take Anderson. Phone Post

Why? A lot of these guys like Lyoto, Hendo and possibly even Gustaffson will likely stand with him...

Im not advocating he sucks 50lbs to make 170 but he seems to be at a significant size disadvantage at LHW esp in the UFC esp with the wrestlers. But then again, Rashad, Machida, Hendo are not big LHWs.

I suppose its whatever weight the fighters themselves are comfortable at.
