Log in to Reply metaal December 19, 2012 maybe he’s too small to become champ, but even if he dropped down, he will not be a champ in other weightclass too. Let the guy bang it out at HW. Always exciting to see Log in to Reply gingjok December 19, 2012 ^ Lombard, Paul Harris.

Log in to Reply JO December 19, 2012 5’11” HA! No way man. Log in to Reply Powertele December 19, 2012 Mark Hunt-5′,10”/Fedor-6′,0” Log in to Reply canguy December 19, 2012 I have no problem with his size. That’s most likely not going to specifically win you a fight or Struve would be champ and he got knocked out cold by Nelson. The thing with Barry is simply the other aspects of his game will keep him from being champ because his strongest aspect isn’t strong enough that i can negate his drawbacks. Log in to Reply canguy December 20, 2012 I also want to say that making people feel like a champion crap is bull crap, if that was the case we’d all be champions and we’re not, there’s only one. Say crap like that makes people think they don’t need skill or hard work or intelligence. Please. Those things are very convenient to say when your guy wins. I bet a lot of the guys who lost to GSP or AS woke up feeling great and felt like a champion all week… Log in to Reply Ruddo293 December 20, 2012 he carrys alot of weight in his legs… He could make 205 and really be ripped and lean… I think the guys at 205 are a bit more techinal than him. I’d love to see him fight frank mir next. Log in to Reply JoeS December 20, 2012 Mike Tyson – 5’11” Log in to Reply paddedummy December 20, 2012 The only reason Barry won is because he finally fought “a HW” (more like a flabby 205er) who was even smaller than him for once and then he started yelling “they said I was too small” after the fight like proved them wrong lol Log in to Reply champions i created! December 20, 2012 I created so many champions! I mold them like god! Log in to Reply ultimate fighter December 20, 2012 I dont mean to dismiss Pat’s ability to compete at HW, I just meant for someone of his size, cutting would not be as much of an issue. @powertele your right about hunt (fedor realistically is a chubby middleweight), but its precisely those kinda fighters that could seriously hurt pat, whereas at LHW, he has to worry less about opponents punching power, but force everyone else to deal with unique speed and strength. I honestly feel at LHW he would be the best striker, and would pose serious problems to anyone in that division. Log in to Reply Poisson9 December 20, 2012 All great opinions guys, but the reason 205LHW is the best option to potential challenge whoever is champ at the time is 1. It is a fixed weight 206 non title 205 title. No matter how tall, short ,fat, arm reach, leg reach, and style of fighting you will have to weigh nearly identical to your opponent. Fighting at HW is open weight between 206.01 and 266.00 I believe. When you fall somewhere in between these most likely 225-245, a fighter’s style, technique, and durability account for much more, because strategically some techniques become unusable.
