Scott Smith is one of the more popular middleweights in Strikeforce, but according to his manager Mike Roberts, "Hands of Steel's" days of fighting at 185 may be on the verge of coming to end, at least for now.

Roberts said on Monday's edition of The MMA Hour that Smith, who most recently lost to Cung Le in June via second round KO, is seriously considering dropping down to welterweight.

For sure if he does it correctly he can make the cut. Smith is a blue collar type fighter and I rerally enjoy watching him fight win or lose. A move to WW would definatly give him an edge. And now that Shields is gone he could rise to the top. A fight with Diaz would be great. I would pick Nick to win. But it would be a barnburner for sure!

I hope he gets in better shape doing this, his core has always looked soft. He is a striker's version of Babalu at MW, now maybew he can have similar success after he gets in good shape.
