Default Nate Marquardt going down to 170lbs.

http://www.fightline.com/fl/news/201...ate-marquardt/

"(Michael) Bisping would be a great fight, I would take that any day," Marquardt said when asked by Helwani what his plan is for his next fight. "There's still a lot of fights at '85 that I want but one thing I talked to my coaches (about) before this fight--and a couple of my teammates, like Georges St. Pierre--we talked about me cutting down to 170, because I was walking around really light, basically at the same weight Georges walks around at. I think it's something that I'd like to try out if it's a good fit, then go for the title there."


So I'm sure you guys have read this somewhere already but I was wondering what do you guys think of Nate going down in weight?

I think he would be huge in size! Probably bigger than Georges.
I think he would cause some serious damage at welterweight.
I guess Georges is planing to move to middle weight.

Yeah, that's my interpretation, too.

He would probably be one of the bigger ww! I don't think he's that small at MW!

Either Georges is going to MW or they're both professionals and won't cry about training with a champ in their same weight class and the possibility of having to fight a training partner.

How's that for one long, run-on sentence?

I used to like the guy but for a long time now his fights just seem to get more and more boring.

Nate at 170?? Man, he'd be a beast for sure! Nate is not small for 185, and I've heard it said he's as strong as most guys at 205, so he could do some serious damage at WW given his skills, even if he loses some strength. Unless he ended up looking like James Irving did at 185...there's a right & wrong way to do things.
