No not really, hes not that good. Clearly gatekeeper fodder. That said I don't even think he could make 115 considering he's fought at BW recently and he's 5'6.

Not sure if you realize this but you do realize that the less weight you are dealing with the harder it is to cut weight right?

The amount of 35s that had the ability to cut to Fly was relatively small and was basically only the guys who were obviously dwarfed in every fight like Cariaso, Dodson, Joe B and Mighty Mouse. These guys are about 5'4 on average and were in a division that is full of 5'7ish fighters.

We haven't seen many guys making the drop to Fly and likely won't any time soon.
