Cutting to 155? I don't see it making a difference even if he can do it. At 155 he would just end up being a cut below the top talent there IMO and lose some punching power, his bread and butter.

I would rather see him as a good gatekeeper at WW rather than at LW.

I would like to see him fight Paulo Thiago next
I agree

But I also agree with this...

I've heard that his casual weight is only around 180 to 185... a cut to 155 is not far fetched at all. Being closer to 40 than 30, I would just like to see him take one more shot a title contention... which I think is more likely at LW. Of course, moving away from GSP and moving into Penn's world, is pretty much like jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire... so, yeah, maybe he should stay where he is comfortable and keep putting on entertaining bouts.
