I just heard on MMA Live that they are fighting at LHW. Interesting because I didn't think either of them were as small as Randy, seems like a big cut.

Yeah, I'm interested to see what they look like at the weigh-ins. Despite that, O'Brien by decision.

Sounds like a screw up to me. I can't see either O'Brian or Wellisch cutting the 35 lbs to make 205 even with a lot of time(weeks/Monthes) to do so.

Legit. They came in at 205-206.

They both looked pretty ripped at 205. War Irish!

you guys beat me to my retraction. I can't believe they cut that much weight. Wonder if it is a way to get aaway from Brock?......and the other bigger HWs?

Brock is definately changing the HW division. Werdum had the right idea when he came in at 255 against Dos Santos...but then he got folded. All of the Heavyweights are either going to have to hit the weight room hard or lay off the twinkies and follow suit of O'Brian and Wellish.

i was shocked to see them at 205 both of them heavyweights, it's already bad enough their is a lack of talent and fighters at heavy but they just lost two more of them.

The only reason I am kind of happy about this is that maybe the UFC will actually put some money into getting some of the good heavyweights back or new ones like Fedor. Buy Arlovski, Cro Cop, and others. Get Fedor and Roy Nelson or whoever.

Wellisch looked huge

I am not nearly as confident in my o'brian pick

This is why we need a split in the heavyweight div. The gap is way to big.
i dont see either of these guys having a impact at LHW they will lose that power and explosiviness they had at HW.

206-240 Heavy
241+ superheavy
