But I also think that doing it at 185 would do nothing to tarnish his career if he lost to Anderson, while on the flip side if he happens to win it would cement his legacy as the 170 GOAT like nothing else could...especially given his finishing percentage as champ.
I'm not sure why, but I never thought of them fighting at catch weight, I always thought if they did fight, Georges would go to 185. Like you say, if he loses, he's still the WW champ; although, if he did win, I guess that would present a can of worms he might not want to have to deal with.
I really think Georges is happy where he's at, and if it were up to him, all this talk of fighting Anderson would go "poof!"
