When you’re a 220-pounder who faces grueling weight cuts to 170 pounds, the prospects of fighting in the 185-pound division are awfully enticing.

He may have to cause after Lawler knocks him out he'll be 0-2 in welterweight title fights.

I can't believe he cuts from 220...what did Rumble walk around at?

I can't believe he gets that big....he must really let himself go. He's not even that big of a WW imo...I think a move to MW would be a bad idea for him.

Plus it's never wise to plan on being a multi weight goat prior to earning and defending the title in your primary weight class.

somehow this is either BS or he just walks around way over weight. how is is that he cuts the same amount as brock yet hes only a WW. i know rumble use to do it, but hes also 6'2 and use to walk around 215 to 220 and is now fighting at 205. Johny is 5'9 and looked smalled then GSP. im not too sure how he'd fair at MW.
