Wow the only one who knows that is you.

Try to cut weight and see how it feels and what kind of toll it takes on your body, then decide.

It's not too hard of a cut and 145 is a bit much to be cutting on a weekly basis.

alright ill do 152, but theres another guy trying for that aswell. but ill try to get as low as possible

I'd go 152 as well because if your 6'1'' thats freakin beastly at a division like 152. If there are better wrestlers in that class then I'd just go up to 160 sinc eyou walk around that weight and you won't have to cut and lose really any energy...

You can control them when they can't touch you. You're shots will be longer, you'll have better hand control, etc. Two things that make for a great wrestler to go along with technique, is strength, and height. If you have all three, your gonna do decent.
