That's great for him since he has always been small at MW but it kind of limits his options. He can't fight Koscheck or Fitch so I it will probably hard for him to find opponents at the top tier.

There are so many great wrestlers at that weight class i see him having a hard time competing there

He.s got the WW speed.... but i too think that he will be overwhelmed by wrestlers...

Hopefully he can overwhelm the wrestlers with his definite reach advantage, if he can lose the weight healthily without damaging his cardio, i think he can be a major threat

I agree. Considering the MW division is a pretty weak division and condsidering his success as a UFC MW, I don't understand this move.

I think it's a good move. He'll be closer to people his weight, that's the bottom line.

No one wants to fight bigger guys ...
