ive been racking my brain, trying to be as unbias a possible, to think of someone at LW that would really give Matt trouble. i think Matt could easily coast through most of the division and he'd have an excellent chance of holding the title. He matches up really well against everyone in that weight class, and I think he'd be one of, if not the strongest guy in the division.

I'm not saying he shouldn't do it. I'm just saying I think Sherk is short.

I think it would be awesome to see him fight at 155...not sure if he could make the cut. Well, I'm sure he could, being a lifelong wrestler & the professional that he is, but would he end up looking like James Irving on the scale? The best I've seen Matt look was the 175 catch weight fight with Royce, the muscles were popping! But yeah, if he could make the cut without half killing himself, he'd give anyone at 155 a ton of trouble!

I haven't taken the time to look at their stats to double check(I'm lazy) however I met Matt for the first time at the same time and place I met Sherk and Sherk wouldn't stand up to take a picture with me. I'm fairly tall for a woman and he would have looked tiny next to me. Matt is just a tad shorter than I am. Maybe it just seems Matt is taller to me because I have such a high opinion of him.

Sherk is about 2-3 inches shorter than Matt.

Hey, I'm with you, I would love to see Matt have two titles in two weight classes too! I said I "think" it would be too low, not that he couldn't make it. If he were to choose to go down to 155 and fight, I'd be right there with the rest of y'all cheering and rooting for him.

As for GSP, it'd be 15 pounds either way, if he walks around normally at 170. I just assumed he walks around heavier and would be closer to a natural 185, but maybe not. Both Matt and GSP are very disciplined so I'm sure both could make 155.

I was right, it wasn't just my imagination.

yeah, i think matt would do real well, but he has to cut the weight, not me .. LOL ... as for gsp ... we just had an interview because everyone wanted clarification on what his manager said and he said that he could make 155 but was going to bulk at this point in his career .. at 30 he is getting bigger, so i think 185 is good for him .. and he'll take anderson out and have that belt ...

Matt would be great at 155 BUT I think he is to big for 155 (sorry Matt). At 170, he is ripped up and pretty big, 155 would be hard to get to with the amount of muscle mass he has.....would love to see it though.
