    GSP has literally been quoted as saying he has walked around close to 200 in the past. Look it up.

    The funny part is, you are the one wanting GSP's word. I'm telling you what he's said that contradicts himself.

    The difference is I don't care to even look for it.

    Google it. It's not hard.

    Or bury your head in the sand

    Well if he was George St Dern he’d fly into Vegas five days out weighing 190lbs for a LW fight.

    BTW this is the exact math - 140/115 = 190/155, same percentages

    Probably has a better shot at making it than Dern.

    I heard him say he walks around at about 185 when he was a WW. Some strict dieting gets him to a point he doesn't have to do the "Mackenzie Derp weight cut." He's a professional with coaches with a lot of experience. I think he makes it no problem, outside of unseen health issues.

    GSP's walk around weight has always been 187lbs.

    The heaviest he got was vs Shields at 192lbs, and he weighted the same vs Bisping.

    I think if he dropped off maybe 5lbs, he would be fine to get to LW and keep his stamina/strength.

    Ferguson gets nowhere near 190 let alone 200. That dude talks crazy nonsense. Khabib and eddie get around 190 but are pretty soft. Felder probably gets close to 200 while being lean, that's a good comparison if what you said was true. I have no doubt GSP gets well over 200 out of camp. He has abs in the cage vs Bisping while weighing in the 190s and looked bigger than Mike. No LW is GSPs size

    Now that he is competing inside regular and truly random drug testing regulations, I think 155lb will be easy for him to make.

    I highly doubt he can do it and be healthy.

    GSP barely balloons up out of competition and even then he still ripped up well.

    I tend to disagree with both of these. First of all thats nates weight class and has only had a problem making weight once when he fought with a injury. And if gsp goes down in weight and is smart about I don't think anybody could give him a bad night.

    You're wrong. Some lightweights are bigger than him. GSP even said it himself.

    GSP in the Bisping fight was bigger than GSP out of camp. He had to GAIN weight for months to fight Bisping, not lose weight.

    Khabib weighs more than GSP out of camp and he's able to make 155. Not saying Khabib is bigger, but he sheds off more weight.
