Plus he's mention that it's all about cementing his legacy instead of the belt now and after Shields I'd say that that warrants a step up in weight. I'm not a fan of fighters jumping up and down the weight classes and unless they can poach Nick and Daley back again the division doesn't have that much to challenge him any more. |
He's stated before that if the decision is made, it'll take a while before the first fight at 185 as it's going to be a permanent move because of the 6/8 month break to add the extra 15 pounds properly in order to compete at the division. This approach and a tough first test; Chael, Marquardt, Palhares (although who knows what's going on by then!) before the champ instead of a fast track Superfight would be what I'd like to happen.
