maybe we'll hear from the big guy his self
I find that hard to believe. Could this be Georges and his camp's way of trying to avoid moving up to 185 and fighting Anderson by saying he's closer to 155 than 185? What prompted Firas to say this...was there a question asked, or did he conveniently slip that tidbit in?

I agree, I think 155 would be too low a weight for Matt.
