GC111 - Because he's not a pussy.

The majority of competitors in judo, wrestling, boxing, kickboxing, karate, tkd, bjj, sambo, mma are all pussies.

A guy like Phil Davis will be a nightmare for him, imo...

Gustaffson will handle him easily and get his much deserved title shot.

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

MartialArtsMixed -  He's eventually going up to hw Phone Post

He said that waaaay earlier on in his career. He was weighing around 220-230 lbs when he first moved up to LHW.

Now, he says he walks around at 210 and could make 185, but doesn't want to. In a way, it's very reasonable: while fans can recognize that ideal weight classes are generally the best, fans lose sight that dropping a weight class means forfeiting all the good (good $$$) matchups in that weight class, in exchange for another. I suppose he feels no reason to get rid of all the big LHW fights that are open to him, and would rather leave that for later, if he has to.

Also, as a side note, he's bigger than Hendo, Rashad, and Machida.

I thought he looks comparable to Rashad and Machida. I didnt think he was 210, he looked more like barely 200 to me. 210 at LHW is not bad at all, just didnt think he was there.

He will fight at LHW until he gets manhandled, which i suspect someone like Phil Davis or Rashad would do handily.

He can beat Gustaffson though, without a doubt.

The majority of competitors in judo, wrestling, boxing, kickboxing, karate, tkd, bjj, sambo, mma, etc dont cut weight?

Ok, yeah, that does look like he is ok at LHW, i just thought he was about 10-15lbs lighter than he is at LHW for some reason. So he is around 210, id say that's big enough and possibly bigger than Rashad and Machida.

Yes but thus like Fedor Gegard is confident enough in his skill level to fight around his natural weight. That shows confidence. Therefore he's not a pussy.
