I don't really know this and it's hard to tell with Aldo's dominance...but I think the top 10 lightweights are a lot more talented than the top 10 featherweights, so it makes sense that many in the top 10 would go to featherweight, where they should have a quicker/easier path to a title shot and maintain a better ranking. I'm a lot more familiar with the lightweight guys and that is certainly an influence on my opinion.In my humble opinion the move doesn't really make sense for Gray, he seems built well for LW, is probably pretty close to a shot with Edgar being gone, and he may well be able to take the title. Now if he loses a title match, or two fights...then I suppose he might as well drop down, good chance of another title match pay day.

I think Gray can win the title at LW, he should stay there and go for it.

Not sure why he would go down right when Edgar did too

So 145 will just be 155 from last year?

If Gray is thinking about dropping then its because Aldo is thinking about moving up.
