It depends on how much the cut takes out of him. It's extremely common for a fighter to be sluggish his first time at a new weight, regardless of his cardio in the previous division. Just look at Mike Swick. He got the nickname "Quick" for a reason, but just look at his lackluster (there's that word again, Dave!!) performance against Burkman when he dropped to Welter. He looked like he was wading through water.
