Can he make it?

Dude is pretty thick for LW, have to lose some muscle or something.

Will be a good move if he can make it w/o draining himself.

Great choice. Lay off the weights and he'll make it just fine.

It'll be interesting to see his power striking @ 45

Not sure how I feel about it. I like him at lightweight.

Very true. I think Siver is to short at LW and the Div is way to competitive right now. FW will be an easier run for the title no doubt.

Cole Miller on the other hand, DOES NOT need to cut down. Hell I'd say he pull a "Reem" and bulk up.

Interesting...I like siver a lot at lightweight, curious to see if he can actually cut the weight to a point where he can be relevant in a fight w/o gassing out against fast guys like erik koch and even junior aldo...should be fun to watch

His height is better suited for FW.

It would help to know what he walks around at.

He looks like a sawed-off Brock Lesnar

I would try to avoid the Diaz weights at all cost at this point, good move Dennis.

His reach always puts him at a disadvantage given that his forte is striking. I like the move though.

Very nice addition. I like the fact that some ufc lightweights are moving down

Physically the right move imo. Lose some muscle mass will improve his cardio and will be in a division where is height and reach should be less of an issue.

Siver has a 70 inch reach. Thats not small at all for LW nor FW.

Wow didn't realise his reach was that big. Guess it's just the impression I have of him purely because of how muscular he is lol
