    Lol right.

    Nate would have a harder time making 155 and be more adversely affected by the cut.

    He is the definition of professional... but 155. Think he might have to cut his Riddum too. Woodley at 170!!!

    He's not the same size that he was 13 years ago, he looked beefy against Bisping. I dont think he could make 55.

    If he gets Gabe Rudiger as his dietician I think there's a chance.

    He can make 155. The question is, can he make 155 without being drained? I doubt that.

    Seems like a dumb idea. I want to see these guys fight without cutting. Khabib/GSP at 175/180.

    OP, I don't think GSP can make 155 without looking unhealthy. He carries a solid musculature.

    Some guys have thin frames and can make 155 (e.g. Cerrone, Diaz), but I don't see that being the case with GSP. At least, not healthily.

    180?

    That doesn't sound right.

    GSP stays in good shape but out of camp I'd be surprised if he weighed less than 185.

    I still don't get why GSP has been trying to claim he was an undersized WW. That was never true against anyone he faced.

    There certainly are some big WWs now (e.g. Thatch) in terms of weight, but even today GSP would be at least average size.

    If he does not make it, it will embarrass him and show he is going to such huge lengths to NOT fight Woodley.
    If he makes it, it will be still embarrassing how he runs from a WC to another WC in order to avoid fighting the top fighters.

    He's only 5'10. Of course he could. He could barely make 185.

    GSP was never a huge WW. I’m sure he can make 155 and become king. Khabib would be his toughest fight there. Conor and Nate have nothing for him.

    Yes. He can drop down to 168-170 easily by losing muscle. He can cut water the rest

    You know Nate has fought the vast majority of his career at 155, right?

    168-170 walk around weight is what FW's walk around at. LW's are walking around 190lb today.

    While WW's are around 200lbs
