I know Fedor probably will never go to LHW even though he absolutely could, but how do you think he would do in the UFC LHW Division. I personally think he would absolutely be a contender. I could see him beating Rashad, Page, and Machida. I think it would be awesome to see.... to bad it will never happen.
Fedor at LHW could go one of two ways. It could be amazing and the best decision he's ever made or the weight cut would hurt his performance considerably. Personally I would love to see it but I don't see it going well.
Fedor never cut weight for his mma career, which has been going on for a long time. Just starting to cut weight at his age after his career could severely drain his gas tank, especially for the first couple of cuts. That and Fedor has always been that medium sized heavyweight that had knockout power and a great deal of speed. If Fedor drops to 205 he loses that speed advantage right off the bat.
Fedor has always treated this as his job, not his passion. I just don't think he's in any position to be thinking about cutting weight this late in his career unless he's really focused on being a fighter and wanting to win another championship.
