Duke Roufus announced recently that Erik Koch is on his way up to lightweight and Chico Camus is on his way down to flyweight after their UFC 164 performances.

I think Flyweight is a good move for Camus. As for Koch, a move up could be beneficial. He has a pretty good size frame for 145 and 155. I'm not sure how many pounds Koch cuts to get to Featherweight, but saving that 10lbs going to Lightweight should help, either way.

I think Koch will get hammered at light weight.

Me too. Too many wrestlers that will have a size advantage over him.

Me three.

I like Koch, but I think he'll have a tougher time at lightweight. Hopefully I'm wrong.

I think a Koch vs Cruickshank fight would be pretty interesting.
