I was thinking about this before when reading a topic about Mayhem wanting at 182 catch-weight instead of 178.

The norm is really if a fighter is going to move weight for 1 fight for them to move up, moving down is more a long term or permanent chance fighters make usually.

On the flip side if I recall this all came about Mayhem calling out Diaz and since Diaz is the WW champ he does have some cause of debate making this situation unique in term that he does have good clause to want to stay at WW.

But in normal circumstances the unspoken correct course of etiquette almost, is for the smaller fighter to move in weight to test himself, look at Penn vs GSP, A.Silva vs Forest for examples, fighters who moved down like Bisping and Wandy did so on more permanent grounds.
