It seems crazy to see guys as big as Alves fighting at 170 when you know he steps into the cage closer to 185/190.

"They say".. of course "they" are often wrong... But they say.. Brock fights closer to 280-300 on fight day.

Total agreement.

This has been bugging me for years and I've been thinking about it a lot recently for some reason. The irony!
