Maldonado considering drop to 185

by John Morgan | source:

Fabio Maldonado's manager, Alex Davis, said that his client hasn't yet made a commitment to middleweight, but he's certainly considering the option.

"Maldonado has been relying on his capability to withstand punishment, and it caught up with him," Davis told "Now I'm hearing he wants to drop to 185 pounds. I think it could be a good move."

"We have been trying to get him to defend himself better, but the answer is always, 'I don't mind getting punched. Well, this time that attitude cost him.

"I have never seen Maldonado get rocked, but he is as human as the next man. A well-placed power punch rocks him just as any other human being."

"Losing is always a lesson, and this time – different then the other two fights when he should have been given the win – he really lost. Trust me, he learned from it. Look for a better Maldonado."" target="_blank">Read entire article...

There's potential for some awesome fights at middleweight for him, but at the top of the division will get a little wrestler heavy, so he would need to sprawl like a mad man!

More like he would have been beaten to the point it may have had career ending implications down the road. He went to the hospital right after that fight. Anymore punishment and he might still be in there. Really tough guy, but those shots he took may haunt him physically later in life.

I think he should stay at 205 and chase a Glover Rematch. If the ref doesn't jump in and pull another early stoppage I'm sure he can pull out a victory this time. That referee interference was the biggest home-cooking i've ever witnessed. Here Maldonado is grinding and tiring out an exhausted Glover who has the same 2 moves standing up and the same 2 moves into the arm-triangle on the ground.

If he is fat at 205, we all must have Ben Henderson legs or something.
